The movie was filmed in nine weeks, between April 20 and June 18, 1992, but it wasn't released until February 4, 1994, more than a year and a half after it was finished. Besides releasing all of the later DVD versions of the movie in cropped 1.33:1 pan and scan format, instead of 2.35:1 widescreen, in which the movie was originally filmed, Miramax and Dimension Films also went and cut it down by five minutes before it was released theatrically on only eight hundred screens. This movie was originally much harder, and featured greater violence and language, and most of the cuts were made in those scenes, because studios wanted to make it safer and more appealing to the general moviegoing audience. The uncut version of the movie was never released. See more »

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 you've read any of my other movie reviews, you'll know by now that i'm a massive Christopher Lambert fan. Gunmen see's Lambert team up with Mario Van Peebles who also stars in Highlander 3 with Lambert, in the same year. Lambert is a drug smuggling rebel with a soft side and Peebles is a tough cop. They team when they hear about 400 million dollars which are hidden in a boat somewhere, so they set out to find it. In their quest there are laughs, thrills and spills galore. But the two of them don't exactly get on together, they are like two little kids argueing.
For a low budget movie it's pretty good. I would say it was one of Lamberts better movies but not as good as Highlander and Fortress.
If you like explosive action and guns galore, this is the one for you.
Silly in parts but good fun.
I rated it 7/10
