Titled "Nikita" during filming, producer Art Linson and Warner Brothers settled on a new title during post-production that Warner Brothers owned, "The Specialist". However, two months before the film was to be released, Linson was contacted by Warner Brothers executive Bruce Berman, and told that the title would be changed to "Point of No Return". Warner Brothers gave the working title to an upcoming Steven Seagal vehicle, which was yet-to-be-filmed. Ultimately, that movie, The Specialist (1994), ended up starring Sylvester Stallone after Seagal dropped out.

Claudia buys cans of Progresso Ravioli in the store, and then serves that ravioli at dinner. One can easily see the areas of the ravioli that do not have sauce on them. The sauce is atop the ravioli, which clearly indicates that the ravioli was cooked separately and the sauce was placed over the pasta later. However, canned ravioli would have a completely different appearance; it would have sauce dispersed evenly all over each ravioli.
Because the original version was rated "Not under 18" in Germany, the film had to be cut to receive a "Not under 16" rating for video release and television broadcast. All scenes in which Victor kills somebody with his pistol were cut out. Also some fighting scenes with Maggie were shortened.
