Goofs

When Kobayashi enters the lift with his two bodyguards, Macmanus shoots them. In the next shot we see that Macmanus is sitting on top of the elevator. But the blood of the two bodyguards splashes on the elevator window which in fact should have splashed on the ground since the shots came from above. It can be argued that the blood splashed in all direction and hence came on the window, but Kobayashi who is standing just next to those bodyguards doesn't even have a drop on him.


Crazy Credits

The editor, John Ottman, edited the movie on film. He felt that all the editing done electronically at the time was horrible because all the good editors were still working on film (which is much more difficult). Because of this he thought about putting "Edited on a piece of s*** Steenbeck" at the end of the credits, but instead settled for the more subtle line "Edited on film." Tim Robbins was directing 'Dead Man Walking' at the time and heard about John's idea, which sparked that film's credit ending of "This film was edited on old machines."


Alternate Versions

The Australian television version left the line-up scene unedited for language. However, all other scenes with strong language, such as McManus's call for payback at the discovery of Finster's body, were shortened or removed.
