Despite being filmed in Seattle, the cities most prominent landmark, The Space Needle, is never actually seen in the film.

As the ambulance is driving up off of the beach, there's a long shot of the crowd gathered around and a police helicopter parked next to the road. No one is near the helicopter except a small child who starts to climb onto the back of it, and his mother, who immediately pulls him off of it. A second later, in the next cutaway shot from the opposite angle, the woman and child are suddenly no longer there, but there is now a pilot who is retrieving something from the seat before closing the door.

The 1980s Warner Home Video VHS master was made from a 16mm TV print missing ten seconds of footage including during the car chase involving a laundry truck, an additional punch from Santiago when he confronts McQ in his office, and the introduction of Santiago's henchman before the final chase on the beach. The later video releases and DVD are uncut. See more
