* AdaptationExplanationExtrication: On the original book and film, the reason why the authorities got their knowledge about the Jackal in the first place was their suspicion about why was the French separatist group that hired him going on a bank robbing rampage, and lucking up when their abduction of one of the group's messengers had him tell about the Jackal. On this film, Murad's group never seems to have money issues at all (Murad just makes a quip about the Jackal being expensive before laughing it off and agreeing with a toast) and the Russian police just happened to luck into catching some random member of the group that had somehow overheard Murad talking about the Jackal. Also compare the French knowing absolutely jack about the Jackal in the beginning vs. the FBI having enough of a dossier to immediately finger Mulqueen as a someone who may have met him once.

''The Jackal'' is a 1997 suspense thriller starring Creator/BruceWillis, Creator/RichardGere, Creator/DianeVenora, and Creator/SidneyPoitier. It was directed by Michael Caton-Jones. While its title is similar to the 1973 film ''Literature/TheDayOfTheJackal'', it shares only the main story point of an anonymous assassin and some general plot elements.

* [[{{UsefulNotes/Baltimore}} Baltimore Doubling]]: WMATA, the agency operating the Washington Metro, does not permit filming of movies involving violence in the subway system. The scene involving a firefight in the Metrorail was done in Montreal, but made to look like it was done in the DC system (except for the somewhat obvious, to a metro fan, differences in station architecture and rolling stock -- not the least of which is that the Montreal metro, unlike the Washington metro, ''has tires''.)



* {{Lzherusskie}}: Diane Venora as Major Koslova
