Did You Know?


During the filming of the rooftop confrontation between Fallon and Ray the cast and crew were stunned by the sound of a random, unexpected gunshot. The crew ran downstairs to find a 16-year-old kid with his head blown-off by another youth of the same age as part of a gang initiation by murder. The army was brought in to secure the area the next day and production was moved elsewhere. See more »


When they climb out of the sewer, their pants are not soaking wet despite them spending several minutes standing in knee-deep water. Also, their shoes should have been waterlogged to the point where they would leave wet footprints on the sidewalk, but they don't. See more »

Soundtrack for this movie is one of the first CDs I got and one of the most worn out ones. But it took me more than two decades to finally see the movie too. I suppose I was dodging it because of pretty much bad reviews and, once again, I missed the good movie. OK, it's not masterpiece, but for an action drama it is above average. And music kicks ass!
