This movie includes a reference to the attempted assassination of President Ronald Reagan by John Hinckley, Jr., who had a crush on actress Jodie Foster, and, in his own delusional way, wanted to impress her by killing Reagan. Reagan survived, and Hinckley was arrested. Ironically, Foster was offered the role of Alice Sutton in this movie. She turned it down. See more »

Surprises are always being strewn around along the way to the end. You never know who's is and who's out, who's good and who's bad until near the end. Keeps you guessing and then surprises you. You start thinking Mel Gibson is a bit mad and paranoid, but realize that he might be saner and smarter than you are as the movie progresses. Quite an intelligent plot and though I'd like the ending to be a bit more 'happy' than it is, overall, it is one to enjoy.
