Kevin Costner did actually rollover the hood of a moving car during one of the chase sequences. According to the film's original press material, an insurance executive approached director Roger Donaldson after that stunt and said: "Don't you ever... ever... EVER... do that again!" See more »
When Farrell's arm is sliced by the "goon" at the end it is much lower on the arm than where the band-aid shows it wrapped up in the last shots. See more »
We thought we'd never see you again.

Couldn't you have manage this better?
Not so fast, it's difficult for me to follow in Russian.

There are only a fistful movies I gave 9 points. This is one them. After watching it I immediately had an itch to watch a sequel (regrettably impossible due to the story line). Didn't actually want it to stop and was sad that it ended. (True for just a few other movies, like for example Dr. Zhivago or 12 Monkeys) When I checked the IMDb - rating composition to find out why this movie is so grotesquely underrated, I asserted that the IMDb Staff gave 8 points, anyway. (Phew!) One of the very few US-thrillers, the end of which I wasn't able to predict. Gene Hackman and Kevin Costner are habitually brilliant, Will Patton deserves an Oscar as the best supporting actor in my book.
