When Bodhi shows Jonny the 'kidnap' tape in the back of the van, the monitor is a small, approx 5 inch portable device with dials down the right-hand side and the VCR underneath. However, when they exit the van and we can see inside, the monitor is now a normal 12 inch portable TV with no dials and the VCR appears to be on top of the TV. See more »

The scene when the raid on the house occurs, an FBI is stabbed in the back by a naked woman and she ran around a little more. This scene was cut down to show her only stabbing the FBI agent for television releases. See more »

Goofy and fun.
This movie has energy. The story is kinda goofy, but the direction from Kathryn Bigelow has the right amount of pacing and atmosphere. The chase scene midway through the film is a breath-taking example of what film-makers can do, if they have energy and vision. This movie is pure entertainment and a blast to watch.
