Did You Know?
The filmmakers were told by producers to make the scene where the criminals torture Rane as bloody as "open heart surgery", with his hand being shown being mangled and ripped up with a huge amount of gore. They actually expected the MPAA to demand edits and were prepared to appeal a potential X rating, but to their surprise the ratings board gave the film an R rating and did not make any requests for changes. The torture scene was wrongly reported to have been edited under MPAA pressure (a lot of gore and focus on the torn-apart hand was removed from the final cut), when it was actually edited because preview audiences were horrified and sickened by the images and submitted comment cards saying that they would never recommend a movie with a scene like that to their friends or families.
