A tough-on-crime street cop must protect the only surviving witness to a strange murderous cult with far reaching plans.
Cobretti uses a custom Colt Gold Cup National Match 1911 in 9mm using Glaser Safety Slugs, a frangible bullet. This is shown when he unloads his pistol in his apartment to clean it. The Colt Gold Cup National Match 1911 is usually chambered in .45 caliber ACP. The 9mm versions were made especially for the film.
In America, there's a burglary every 11 seconds, an armed robbery every 65 seconds, a violent crime every 25 seconds, a murder every 24 minutes and 250 rapes a day.
In the long chase scene in the 50, Cobretti spins the car around and drives backward, shooting at the pickup truck. As the pickup truck explodes you can clearly see Cobretti's car facing forward in the bottom right hand of the screen, but in the next shot Cobretti spins his car back around to face forward once again.
A brief 4 sec shot of Stallone saying "You have the right to remain silent" as the petrol-soaked man rubs his eyes was cut from the UK video version by the BBFC (cinema prints were uncut). The print shown on subscription TV (Sky) is intact.
