Eric Roberts was offered a chance to reprise his role as Alex Grady but decided to appear in The Nature of the Beast (1995) instead. Roberts felt that appearing in the film would undermine Tommy Lee's story. See more »

I picked this up 2nd hand and really enjoyed it, in a campy way. Tommy turns up in some rural town and steps right into a race war. Tommy is basically given reason after reason to take on guys of 4 or more and throw them through various fruit stalls, ticket offices, coffee tables, and french windows. The gorgeous Gina Gershon does her best as a choir teacher helping Tommy out, but whenever she needs to be "helpless" it kinda doesn't work because she now plays such strong, female roles.
The acting and direction are seriously questionable but this film is obviously about fight scenes and they are entertaining enough, from the moment we see Gershon's house is full of glass tables, flimsy bookcases and china filled cabinets we know we are in for a treat.
Terrible, patronising attitude toward racial issues but, hey, its got a rocket launcher and plenty of flying kicks.
