* CaliforniaDoubling: Most of the exteriors were actually filmed in more remote parts of {{UsefulNotes/Slovakia}} instead of Bosnia. Most of the supposedly Serbian military vehicles were lent for shooting by the Slovak Army [[IKnowThatGun and disguised a bit to look more like 90s ex-Yugoslav hardware]].
** ''Axis of Evil'' was filmed entirely in Bulgaria. Thus, the so-called North Korean troops [[ArtisticLicenseMilitary use Bulgarian uniforms and weaponry]].
*** Even some of the SEALs in the movie use Eastern Bloc weaponry, though mocked up to look like NATO weapons.

* FakeNationality: All of the Serbian characters were portrayed by Croatian actors, probably because no Westerner can tell the difference and no self-respecting Serbian actor would play the stereotypical role of the bad guy terrorist.
** To be honest, no Serbian or Croatian person could tell the difference, either. Not even by accent, since accents depend on where the person is from, rather than what ethnicity they are - a person born in Belgrade is going to have a different accent from a person born in Bosnia or Croatia, but people from a certain part of Croatia or Bosnia will have the same accents regardless of their ethnicity.
