Trivia

Source novelist Jason Matthews made his technical expertise available to screenwriter Justin Haythe throughout the movie's adaptation from the source novel. "He's a sensational writer," Haythe said of Matthews. "Many of the technical aspects of the plot come from the book. If it was something invented, Jason was there on the end of the phone for technical advice, or he read the script and gave notes, which was hugely helpful. We were lucky to have an expert at the incubation period." Producer Peter Chernin agreed: "Jason gave incredibly detailed notes and feedback on our various script drafts, mostly regarding accuracy and believability of anything relating to Nate's, Dominika's, and their respective colleagues' tactics, etc."


Quotes

Marta: We'll always be their whores. Unless, of course, we have something they want. If I were you I'd find something.


Goofs

At London's Heathrow Airport, we hear an announcement about British European Airways over the PA system. That airline disappeared in 1974 when they merged with BOAC to become British Airways.


Crazy Credits

The title doesn't appear until the 10-minute mark.


Alternate Versions

At the distributor's request, the UK version (both in cinemas and on video) is cut for "strong sadistic violence" to earn a 15 certificate instead of an 18. As both countries make up the same distribution region, Ireland also received the same cut version (rated 16 for cinema and 18 on video). The contentious scene shows Ustinov being strangled:

  • In the UK version, we only see a brief establishing shot where his hands are covering his throat, cutting right to a close-up of Dominika struggling but completely clean. The censored footage shows the wire cutting into Ustinov's throat for much longer, in more graphic detail after his arms hang loose, and him bleeding on Dominika's chest.
  • Ustinov collapsing uses an alternate shot in the UK version, and the second close-up of Dominika is digitally bloodless as with the first, but there's still blood on her chest when putting on her clothes as per the uncut version (a continuity error).
The uncut version is roughly 13 seconds longer.
