Trivia
For the flashback scenes that show Richie's murder, Stephen Kay wanted the film to look grainy and damaged, so he asked Deluxe, the film processor, to think outside the box. Happy to oblige, the techs at Deluxe tied the film to the back of a car and drove it around their parking lot - creating the scratched look. The experiment was short-lived when a Deluxe executive saw it, and ordered them to stop - fearing it would give the company a bad name.

Franchise Pictures was reluctant to cast Mickey Rourke in light of his troubled past as a Hollywood bad boy. Friend Sylvester Stallone, who put Rourke up for the role, guaranteed a portion of his salary so if Rourke did cause any delays or problems, the production would be covered. Rourke turned up every day on time and was a complete professional. His work impressed Franchise enough that they hired him shortly after for their next film The Pledge.

The original screenplay Stallone signed on for was much more violent and focused more on the "revenge" element.

Jeremy Kinnear: [to Jack] You know why I like golf, Mr. Carter? 'Cause the ball just keeps going away. The only sport where you hit that little sucker and it doesn't come back at you. I've gotta want to go after it and get it and when I get to it... I just knock it away again. You see what I'm saying, Mr. Carter? Once I get rid of it, I never wanna see it again.
