New Line Cinema released the film at the start of the US summer season, hoping it would be a good counter-programmer to the blockbusters like "Twister" and "Mission:Impossible". Instead, the film quickly faded from screens after being steamrolled by those two big releases. See more »
As Roger Ebert points out in his review, "a character tastes the ring of moisture left by a cold drink, and identifies who must have been drinking it, even though gin cannot permeate glass and the moisture would have been, according to the best theories of condensation, pure water." See more »
Excellent flick. Caught me by surprise on TV, never heard of it. Very well done; all actors superb. Violent and good action yet slow enough to go deep. Interesting story and atmosphere down in Louisiana. Knowing that Alec Baldwin is from Long Island I thought the accent was done well enough to be convincing. I agree on someone's comment on the DEA agent/ friend. His character could have been more established but no real harm done. I really got into this movie.
