Many scenes take place on the Chicago L-train stops. This train line was an important part of the setting in another Andrew Davis movie which also starred Tommy Lee Jones, The Fugitive (1993). It's also the train line which was the setting to what is generally considered the greatest car chase scene in cinema, in The French Connection (1971), which starred Gene Hackman. See more »
Toward the beginning of the movie, the Brig. General steps outside of the summit without his cover on. Military personnel are always "covered" (wearing a hat) while outdoors. See more »

A very good thriller
This is a very good movie. It has a strong story (which most of the today's movies lack of) and a good relationship between characters. I have seen it a dozen times at least but I still find it rewarding to watch although I know it by heart. I think this should say something about the quality of the film. If you haven't seen it, do it. You won't regret it.
