WTH, Casting Agency?: Aside from a Knighted British legend, they got R. Lee Ermey in this film. R. Lee Ermey! Ermey's death in this film involves him basically walking up behind Seagal's character and allowing Seagal to get within arms reach of his shotgun...yeah, they must have paid him a lot to put up with that. Worse, they reportedly didn't let him ad-lib, which is why several of his lines sound completely nonsensical, to the point of self-parody.
''He's the kind of guy who would drink a gallon of gasoline just so he could piss in your campfire."
- Meanwhile, they brought in John C. McGinley pre-Scrubs to play...a psychotic torture expert? Although this last one is probably the most YMMV of the whole lot; to some, he's the best thing in this movie and genuinely creepy.
