After his wife falls under the influence of a drug dealer, an everyday guy transforms himself into Crimson Bolt, a superhero with the best intentions, but lacking in heroic skills.
The role of Jacques was supposed to be played by Jean-Claude Van Damme up until a week before shooting began. Gunn said "the guy was kind of A.W.O.L. I just couldn't risk that personality type on this movie." Kevin Bacon stepped in as a last minute replacement.
I've had two perfect moments in my life. The first is when I married Sarah. The other, I was downtown.
Frank D'Arbo: He went in there, officer.
Frank D'Arbo: Two perfect moments, which offset a life of pain.
After getting shot, Frank drives away and the shadow of the camera man is visible on the Crimson Bolt. The sun is on the other side (car has turned around) in the next shot in the car.
