** Porn star RonJeremy in a DeletedScene (cut because a lot of people in previews knew who he was, and it was too jarring).

* FakeNationality: East German-born Russian Gregor is played by Swedish Stellan Skarsgård, while the IRA commander Seamus is played by the Welsh Jonathan Pryce. The Russians meanwhile, are played by a Czech-born American, a German, and two Frenchmen respectively. Possibly averted with Deirdre; since actress Natascha Mc Elhone, while English, is Irish on her mother's side and was raised in Belfast.

* BlackmailBackfire[=/=]ThreatBackfire: Gregor threatens to kill Natacha if he is not paid for the case by the end of his countdown. The Russians wait until he is at "one" on his countdown to raise their guns and show her they give exactly zero shits about her life, if they can get the case.

In the aftermath of the UsefulNotes/ColdWar, many secret agents felt unnecessary or redundant. Even if the world wasn't all sunshine and rainbows, the way they worked just didn't seem to apply anymore. This film deals with some of these people, who are compared to {{Ronin}}, the unemployed {{Samurai}} of old Japan.

He was after Dierdre's boss Seamus, [[UsefulNotes/TheTroubles an Irish terrorist leader who was getting in the way of peace talks]], and the case was just a way to get him into the open.]]

* TheUnreveal: Whatever is in the case, it might as well belong to [[Film/PulpFiction Marcellus Wallace]]. This irritates Sam, since knowing if it was heavy, explosive, fragile, or whatever would be helpful in getting it [[spoiler:(and his CIA handlers presumably do want to know its contents)]], but Deidre steadily refuses to give out any data. He thus demands that the fee goes up. The final scene of the movie teases that Sam may have found out about the contents, but when he asks Vincent if he wants to know, Vincent refuses, and it's left unsaid.
