This film was originally supposed to be made under the budget of $30,000,000 starring Kevin Costner in the lead role. In the end, Costner had pulled out and the film was made under the budget of $8,000,000 with Harvey Keitel taking the lead. See more »
Timothy Hutton wearing an open shirt over a vest is in a caravan going over stolen jewellery when Stephen Dorf shoots him. He slumps back with blood showing on the shirt but not on the vest. Moments later he's seen slumped back with blood all over the vest. See more »
Sure, you can find some plots holes in this film big enough to drive a semi through, but that just keeps it from gathering awards, not from being worth a view.
If you like revenge flicks, and noir, and lots of action, as well as a look at Lucy's Little Lius as she does a pole dance, then you might find this film interesting.
What makes it most interesting, however, is the presence of Harvey Keitel. Having him hunting you down is a real bummer. He manages to get shot and almost beat to a pulp by the Chinese, and still keeps on ticking like a Timex. Maybe he just dreamed of being on the beach in Port Arthur with Famke Janssen (of X-Men fame). It could have happened! Check it out to see who wins and loses and enjoy the ride because it is worth it.
