Scenes from the movie were filmed at the "Bird" house in Delray Beach, Florida. The mansion stood nearly completed and vacant for years before it was purchased. The new owner advertised in Variety for a movie company to use the mansion in a movie and blow it up. By the end of filming, only the swimming pool was left. See more »
In the very start of the shootout at the Haitian hideout, when Marcus says "You got to call yourself the devil in his house?!", but his lips say, "You got to call Mike the devil in his house?!" See more »
Look, Captain, these were not normal corpses.
If I threw you out of moving truck and then ran over your head, you wouldn't be normal either!

TBS and TNT versions are edited for TV where they edited out the violence and much of the profanity are removed or dubbed. Including Mike Lowery's "Y'all bunch of filthy motherlovers". See more »
This movie was very entertaining. It had me wanting to watch all the way until the end. It was about 30 minutes too long I'm afraid though. There were many times that I thought there were scenes that could have been cut and still made this movie funny and with great action. Some of the parts were a little overacted as well. All in all I thought this was a good film and I will watch it over and over again for a few scenes. It does have some horrible language in this movie so do not let you kids see it unless you don't care if they repeat what they see. Check the movie out if you are of age. It's a good film.
