Added DiffLines:

* ViewerFriendlyInterface: Rath uses a computer to talk to his contract provider. The chat program he uses has a whopping ''two'' lines of text, probably to accommodate the enormous fonts. It's also [[BeepingComputer incredibly noisy]], with constant prompts for inputs.

The main scriptwriters, Lana and Andy Wachowski, ended up protesting several changes in their script, which they felt made the final product too different from what they had conceived. This did not prevent them from selling to the same producer, Joel Silver, a second script they had completed alongside Assassins. "Film/TheMatrix" would not be ready for release until 1999.

* HollywoodLaw: Interpol does not have field agents and cannot arrest anyone, so there are no gun-wielding sting operations. The organization simply networks national police forces to help them solve international crimes. While flattering, they're also not comparable to the CIA, as Rath claims.

* CopKiller: Miguel Bain is almost casual about blowing away any police officer who gets in his way. When there's a manhunt underway for Miguel, Rath berates him for being so stupid/psycho to attract attention by killing cops.

* HitmanWithAHeart: Rath, but not Bain. Somewhat deconstructed, since it's revealed right at beginning of the movie that his employers just sent another guy whenever he refused to kill someone and that Rath is fully aware of this.
