Trivia

Gabriel Byrne originally turned down the film, not believing that the filmmakers could pull it off. He was convinced after a sit-down meeting with Christopher McQuarrie and Bryan Singer, impressed by their enthusiasm and vision. As the start date approached, Byrne backed out. He was undergoing personal issues at the time and was unable to leave Los Angeles. Consequently, Singer reshuffled the schedule so that the entire film could be made in the L.A. area over a period of five weeks, all to accommodate his lead actor.

Keaton: I can't feel my legs... Keyser.


Goofs

When McManus lights the "finest taxi service" on fire, he drops the lighter, and the sky-view of the car shows fires starting on three separate places on top of the car: the hood, roof, and trunk.


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.
