The Interpol is depicted as a murder-scene investigative agency, even allowing the CIA to cooperate and visit the crime scene.

The UK release is pre-cut to secure a 15 certificate instead of an 18, reducing scenes of "strong violence and gore". Compared to the New Zealand release (whose rating board also releases full running times in mm:ss), it's 11s shorter at 120:34 instead of 120:45 (however, Ireland's board lists the difference at 1m 10s on video, where both versions are rated 15). The cut version was released on DVD & Blu-ray while the uncut version was released on Ultra HD Blu-ray.
