Did You Know?

In one of the last scenes when Meredith is attacked by the Danes you can clearly hear one of them say: "Bind kællingen!" Which is actually Danish and means "Tie the bitch up!"See more »
Factual errors: There is a big sign right beside the main entrance of the train station which reads "Achtung! Stromleitung!" ("Attention! Electric line!"). It is highly unlikely that such a sign would be there because either the line is wired in a way it doesn't harm people or it wouldn't be there at all (due to the vast amount of security protocols and rules concerning electricity in Germany).See more »
Jonathon Cold:[to Mimms] You know, you kind of look like Ray Charles. Then again, old Ray can't shoot as good as you, right.See more »

The solution is...shoot!, 9 September 2004
Author: calleydog from Pataskala, Ohio

The movie fascinated me because of the plot, but once it got underway my fascination took a different direction. I think for the only time in my life I laughed at people getting shot. Segall's Dutch accomplice shoots everyone! He himself is shot four different times. The hotel clerk won't give out a room number? Ask her to call and see which number she dials. Then, instead of unobtrusively going to that room, shoot her!

The farce is complete when Segall faces down an opponent holding a gun 20 yards away. He flings a flight recorder CD with a little C4 stuck on like gum at his assailant. We see the disk igniting in mid-air in slow motion. Does the other guy shoot? No, he just stares at a CD coming to blow him away. The CD has the extra fun effect of propelling him backwards and upwards through a conveniently placed 2nd story picture window.

I must admit; I enjoyed this so much that I immediately went out to get another Segall movie to see if it is as ridiculous. I can't explain why this is entertaining, but it is! IT IS!!
