Alternate Versions

US VHS and Code Red DVDs are the edited R-rated versions which trims a few violent scenes- the guy getting stabbed in bed(and the scene where his dead body is discovered) the guy getting killed in the restroom was cut to remove his head being bashed against the toilet along with a close up of his dead body, a shot of one of the killers in a pool of blood and a slight edit to Silk shooting the other killer in the shoulder. Code Red Blu-Ray and the German DVD are both completely uncut. See more »

Female cop always gets her man
15 April 1999 | by Tim-16See all my reviews

Cec Verrell plays one super-tough cop in this action thriller. She is a beautiful lieutenant with the Honolulu P.D. fighting criminals non-stop. Whether shooting them down with a shotgun, M-16, or handgun, she will stop at nothing to get her man. Wanted dead or alive does not apply to this movie because she takes them (over a dozen victims, yes they must be said to be victims of this super cop) in always in the same condition... dead!
