This is a comparison between the US TV Version aired on G4 and the US DVD released by Warner.

Bobby Lupo is shot on the streets by a gangster named Richie. Detective Gino Felino, a good friend of Bobby, turns the neighborhood upside down to find Richie and bring him to justice. High on drugs, the latter leaves a blood trail all through Brooklyn.

Steven Seagal as a bad-ass Italo-Cop from Brooklyn who wants to revenge the murder of his friend while saving his own honor is great action-cinema. There are no explosions, yet Steven Seagal is great as an uncompromising, grim cop from the hood with a trained Brooklyn accent (I'm still Gino from the block) who is not afraid to kick animal abusers in the balls. Surprisingly enough, over the course of the movie Gino becomes a stone-cold ballbreaker.

Active Animal ProtectionThey called him Ballbreaker

Von hinten in die Eier.Und hoch das Bein.


The movie is highly recommended. Gina Gershon playing a slightly obscene nightclub owner, Julie Strain as a dead prostitute and Danny Inosanto one of Bruce Lee's good friends somehow made it into the movie and are worth watching it.

Initially, the movie was much longer than the theatrical version. However, Steven Seagal and Michael Eliot amongst others insited to recut the movie which also led to a few scenes with William Forsythe getting cut out. On US TV they used to air a heavily censored version that lacked all violence and all of the swear words. That's quite an accomplishment, after all, the word "fuck" is said 114 times. Not to speak of "motherfucker", "balls", and so on. Interestingly enough, the TV Version offers a few alternative scenes, and two longer sequences made it back into the movie. Therefore, the TV version is actually longer than the theatrical version (if you do not count the end credits).

During one of the scenes, Richie buys a new shirt after killing Bobby. This explains why Richie suddenly wears a new shirt. This scene can also be seen on youtube.

There is another scene where Richie and his gang drive to Bobby's wife Laurie who just talks to Vicky. The two of them hide in the bathroom when Richie runs out of the house. A group of people from the neighborhood can run Richie off. Again, this scene can also be watched on youtube.

As was already mentioned, all swears were either cut out or re-dubbed ("Who got the balls?" now is "Who got the guts?"), taken from the soundtrack, or replaced by an alternative shot. The report will only list material that was actually taken out.

Overall, the DVD includes 13:07 min. that are missing in the TV version, while the TV version includes 11:16 min. that are not included on the DVD.

Image comparison:
Above TV, below DVD.







The TV version uses a slightly different image section.
