Was one of several films that Academy Award nominee James Newton Howard was attached to score in 1996 and early 1997 but had to drop due to scheduling conflicts with other films. The others include Chain Reaction (subsequently scored by Oscar Winner Jerry Goldsmith), Liar, Liar, Dante's Peak and The Rich Man's Wife. He did manage to write the themes for this film (scored by Steve Porcaro), Dante's Peak, Liar, Liar and The Rich Man's Wife which were scored by John Debney and John Frizzell. See more »

If you rent this movie thinking it is another Eddie Murphy action-comedy, you better think again!!!! This movie is STRICTLY an action flick. Of course, that's not a complaint, it's just a statement. Murphy still is enjoyable as the hero. He's not playing Axel Foley from the BEVERLY HILLS COP movies, but he sure seems a lot like him. It also steals elements from some of his earlier films. In my opinion, this is a guy movie. The women will probally be bored by the non-stop action and the fact that the only woman in the movie is Eddie Murphy's girlfriend, but action fans will LOVE this movie!!!
