* FocusGroupEnding: The original ending, the ending Sony Pictures wanted the director to use, shows XXXX driving off into the sunset with his new girlfriend. The director secretly recorded the alternate ending, showing XXXX being shot by Sidney to the screening audience and ended up using it based on popular vote, stating "It was not like other American movie endings".

* ExecutiveVeto: In the novel, in the scene where X tries to use the Sniper to kill one of the RuthlessForeignGangsters, an American tourist is mistaken for the target, and is killed by the Sniper. This is partially PlayedForLaughs, because when the actual target runs away, the Sniper refuses to shoot him, as he was only paid for one killing that day. It's indicated that the death is spun as a casualty of the WarOnTerror. When the film was made, distributors thought that this wouldn't go over well, especially in America, so it instead became a scene where the Sniper got killed by a ScopeSnipe.
