(At around thirteen minutes) The "Hotelli Porvoo" is the old town hall (it is now a museum) in Porvoo. The "Porvoo Post Office" is a furniture restoring service.
Preston, how about letting me have a gun.
Carter Preston: Are you crazy! If the right people knew I was letting you walk around without cuffs, I'd get forced retirement!
(at around 1h 40 mins) While the Jackal's weapon is mounted on a van and firing, we can see a part of the vehicle in one shot as the sniper shoots at the gas tank. The vehicle is not even shaking, which would surely be the case in reality. It's supposed to be a rapid firing 14.5mm cannon.
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).
