When John Hartigan (Bruce Willis) comes into Kadie's Bar, Shellie (Brittany Murphy) is carrying a bottle of "Chango beer." This is the same fictional brand used in other Robert Rodriguez movies, including Desperado (1995) and From Dusk Till Dawn (1996).

Even regular patrol cops knew not to enter Old Down with their sirens on and feared the area to the extent that they disengaged pursuits, turned off their sirens, and left.

It's something everyone except him and his goons easily foresaw, but the detective inexplicably couldn't figure it out.
In the opening credits, each of the actor's names is shown with a frame from the comic, featuring their character.
