A longer 97 minute version does exist and was submitted to the OFLC (Office of Film and Literature Classification) in Australia. While this version was rated M, it was noted that it contained "High level coarse language, Violence, Medium level sex scene". Months later, a second version was submitted with a running time of 94 minutes and carried the same M rating, but with "Medium level violence, Coarse language, Sex scene" as the advice. It is believed that the longer 97 minute version was never officially released anywhere. See more »
"If anyone is going to kill you. It's going to be me".
A generically hip, but brutal offbeat comedy action joint that moves at a breakneck pace and offers a lot time for Denis Leary to do his ruthlessly lip-smacking viper bad-guy shtick (and constantly calling those who work for him "morons") and lets not forget Patrick Stewart in somewhat of an unconventional role as a crippled, cold-blooded South American drug lord. I don't know why, but I had trouble seeing Stewart in the part. I guess Capt. Picard kept coming to mind. Anyhow Mario Van Pebbles finds himself teaming up with Christopher Lambert (who both shares a good chemistry) on the hunt for $400 million dollars of stolen drug money stole away on a boat with Leary on their trail that was hired by Stewart.
A very enjoyable, if inflamed b-grade action buddy fare that's held together by a vacant on-the-run narrative laced with self-irony and the screenplay was written by Stephen Sommers (known for "The Mummy" blockbusters). Razor-sharp one-liners fly about ("You talk more sh!t than a radio") and the edgy violence is explosively staged with some cracking (and over-the-top) stunt-work amongst some flavorous exotic locations. It's slickly made and the camera-work simply excels. Performances are fitting. Van Pebbles' brings a rough and ready trait to his agent character and Lambert gives his crooked character a twitchy, but capable side. Although his accent was a bit of a stretch. A bold Brenda Bakke also makes an impression as one of the mercenaries. Furthermore there's good minor support by Sally Kirkland and a comical Kadeem Hardison.
