(at around 1h 30 mins) The Jackal is wearing a long sleeve uniform shirt in his impersonation of a DC policeman when all the other DC police officers are wearing short sleeve shirts which would be the required uniform to be worn specific to a certain time-frame of the year.
The Australian Theatrical version omitted the shot where The Jackal shoots Lamont's arm off in the testing scene, and removed the line in the nightclub scene in the beginning where Terak's brother calls Valentina a "scar-faced c**t". These cuts were made so the movie would achieve an M rating (recommended 15+ years). The full version was released on video with an MA rating (restricted 15+ years).
$15,164,595 (USA) (16 November 1997)
