Realising this is one of the few starring vehicles that Dolph has with which the villain became "iconic" and almost stole the show (just like he did on a bigger scale in ROCKY IV)...

Funny that Craig Baxley's film got mentioned over ROBOCOP 2 (also shot in Houston --and by the same cinematographer Mark Irwin)...

I'm glad I'm not the only one. Betsy Brantley is not given her due credit when the film is discussed. I always liked their scenes, the fact that she was not the stereotypical girlfriend / love interest with sex appeal, and brought actual gravitas and maturity that would seem "unusual" to face off Dolph Lundgren.
