Director Sidney J. Furie has brought actor Dolph Lundgren to be deeply involved in the making of this movie, from the pre-production stages to the editing phase.
Inspired by the Rampart scandal, which refers to widespread corruption in the CRASH (or Community Resources Against Street Hoodlums) anti-gang unit of the LAPD (Los Angeles Police Department) Rampart Division in the late 1990s.
At the beginning of the movie, a thug that Lundgren beats up can be seen wearing a Punisher t-shirt emblazoned with the famous skull design. Dolph Lundgren played the title role in The Punisher (1989).
Dolph Lundgren did not play the title role in the Punisher. That entry is incorrect.
