Jack Cole is a soft spoken, mystical, new age New York cop with a checkered past. He is transferred to Los Angeles to help Los Angeles cop Jim Campbell solve a series of brutal murders in which the victims are crucified. The murders that have happened since Jack arrived in Los Angeles just don't sit right with him. When the killer, known as the "Family Man", kills Ellen DunLeavy, who happens to be Jack's ex wife and the mother of his two kids, and Ellen's husband Andrew DunLeavy, it becomes personal - especially when Jack's prints are found on Ellen's body. Jack meets with his military mentor Smith, not knowing that Smith is in cahoots with local crime boss Frank Deverell.Written by

John Malkovich, Ron Perlman, Ed Harris, Viggo Mortensen, Michael Keaton, and Alec Baldwin were considered to play Donald Cunningham. See more »
In the first major fight scene against the Russians, the last opponent Jack Cole fights and eventually kicks off the side of the raised cement floor, the same footage of a hand strike to the opponents head is looped and the same strike (camera from behind Cole's left shoulder facing opponent tangentially) is repeated 5 times. A kick from a slightly more distant angle is re-used twice. This is particularly obvious when slowed down and viewed frame by frame, but also apparent at actual speed due to the fact they keep instantaneously 'retreating' and then moving closer to the edge of the floor/ledge area.

C'mon. Take your best shot!
[Cunningham swings and misses]
No, I said your *best* shot!
[Cunningham swings and misses several times]
[Cunningham swings and misses several more times, then gets Cole in the nose]
Is that the *best* you got, boy?
[Cunningham swings and misses]
'Cause if that's the best you got, I'm just gonna have to kill you.
[starts choking Cunningham]
IS *THAT* ALL YOU GOT?

In the BBFC-approved UK video version, nine seconds are cut. In the scene where Cole confronts two Russians in the car, four seconds of Cole beating a Russian over the head nine times with his gun butt have been cut, and in the final fight scene, four seconds of Cole repeatedly punching Donald in the face after kicking him onto the table are cut.

This is another Segal formula flick. Thankfully, unlike some of his more recent movies, he's in much better physical shape (i.e. he's not fat). Segal plays yet another former government operative, now a local police officer/detective, trying to live out his life out of the "business".
Shrouded in mystery and controversy, Segal, once again, become a one man wrecking crew taking out everyone and everything, while maintaining his clam, Buddhist/Art of War philosophies in the process.
Why on earth they dragged, Keenan Ivory Wayans into a Segal formula movie is beyond me. I mean not say I didn't like him in the flick, but why him? Better yet, why anyone? As far as I can tell Segal usually does his better movies running solo, as he is the bona fide martial artist. One would figure if you were going to pair him up with someone, make it another action hero or another martial artist.
Either way, if you're a Segal, action movie fan this movie is a good way to kill a couple of hours. If you're not into that, then skip this flick.
