1991 action film starring StevenSeagal.
Gino Felino (Seagal) is a police officer in crime-ridden Brooklyn. He has an agreement with the local mob that neither will hurt the other. One day, however; psychopathic, drug-addicted mob boss and Gino's childhood enemy Richie Madano (William Forsythe) murders Gino's partner, Bobby Lupo, in broad daylight in front of his wife and two kids. Gino embarks on a [[RoaringRampageOfRevenge vengeful rampage]] to find Richie and kill him, beating up half the mobster population of the district in the process.
!!This film provides examples of:
* AnticlimaxBoss: When Gino finally gets to Richie, he beats him so thoroughly that Richie's continued attempts to put up a fight become almost comical until Gino finally puts him out of his misery.
* AxCrazy: Richie.
* BarBrawl: [[http://www.cracked.com Cracked.com]] columnist Robert Brockway sums it up well, writing about a clip of the famous scene: "''Seagal casually, almost absent-mindedly beats the shit out of most of New Jersey in this video, using a billiard ball wrapped in a bar towel.''"
* EvenEvilHasLovedOnes: Richie's parents plead with Gino not to kill their son, even as they are sickened by what he has done. He agrees only if Richie turns himself in [[CaptainObvious which of course he doesn't because then there would be no story.]] His brother, who is a JerkAss and criminal, counts as well.
* HeyItsThatGuy: [[LawAndOrder Lennie Briscoe]] is the captain.
* KnightTemplar: Gino. In his quest to find Richie, he treats people not a great deal more gently than Richie himself does.
* LaserGuidedKarma: A subplot involves Gino [[PetTheDog adopting a dog]] that some brute [[KickTheDog throws out of a window]]. At the end, Gino finds the brute again, [[GroinAttack kicks him in the balls]], and then the dog comes and urinates on his face.
--> Please, God; let me run into this guy some time.
* RoaringRampageOfRevenge: Gino but also Richie, who is out to settle scores, albeit with a much heftier dose of DisproportionateRetribution which brings Gino, the police and TheMafia all after him.
