A frustrated office worker learns that he is the son of a professional assassin and that he shares his father's superhuman killing abilities.
In the office at the end of the film a nameplate is visible on one of the cubicle walls. The nameplate reads "J.G Millar" which is a composite of writer Mark Millar and artist J.G. Jones, on whose comic the film is based.
It's my anorexic boss' birthday. This means there's a certain amount of inter-office pressure to stand around the conference table, eating crappy food and pretending to worship her. Acting for five minutes like Janice doesn't make all our lives ...
Every time we see a bullet fired from modern guns fly through the air, it has 3 shallow grooves in it. Most modern firearms have 5-6 sets of lands and grooves, depending on the manufacturer. The Heckler & Koch that Wesley uses for most of the film has 6 sets of hexagonal lands and grooves, whereas the Beretta that Sloan uses to show Wesley how to "curve the bullet" has 5 sets. The Olympic Arms Matchmaster that Fox uses also has 6 sets, and would definitely "score" the bullet accordingly, therefore making the "Goodbye" on her last bullet impossible to read.
There are no opening credits. The title appears as a headline on a newspaper well into the movie.
