Did You Know?

Edit
Trivia Nicole Kidman stated that she got the flu during filming, but powered through and tried to use it in her performance. For the final scene in the movie with her character's daughter, Kidman said she was so sick while filming she could "barely stand." See more »
Goofs When Bell changes the magazine of her HK MP5 during the firefight in the bank, the sub-machine gun's safety is set to S (Sicher = Safe). During magazine changes (especially under fire) you leave it at the setting that you had: E (Einzelfeuer = Single Shot) or F (Feuerstoss = Full Automatic). See more »
