* CreatorCameo: Eric Red can be seen in a cameo role toward the end of the film as a sheriff's deputy escorting the prisoner to the transfer bus.



* EnforcedMethodActing: C. Thomas Howell admitted that he was actually afraid of Creator/RutgerHauer on and off the set because of the actor's general intensity.
* ExecutiveMeddling: Executives tried to have [[spoiler:the death of Nash softened and toned down. One executive even tried getting the scene excised and another suggested softening it by following it with a funeral scene]]. The director and producer stood their ground and the scene was kept in but not shot graphically.
* HeyItsThatGuy: [[Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine Quark]] is an interviewing officer during an interrogation.
* RevisedEnding: [[spoiler:The film originally ended with Jim Halsey shooting John Ryder as Ryder lay prone on the highway. However, to avoid an X rating, the filmmakers shot the ending that was ultimately used (with Ryder getting to his feet, showing he is still a threat, and giving Jim at least partial justification for shooting him)]].



** Ryder was written with Music/KeithRichards in mind. The director's personal choice for Ryder was Creator/TerenceStamp while Creator/SamElliott had the best audition and almost got the part (a salary dispute led him not to be cast). Music/DavidBowie and Music/{{Sting}} were also considered.

-->"Give the credit where itís due. But I disown the picture."
* WhatCouldHaveBeen: The original script ran the film equivalent of three hours, had more of a FilmNoir vibe and was filled with {{Gorn}}. Moments that ended up not being filmed include: Ryder slaughtering an entire family, an eyeball appearing in a hamburger (this was replaced in a finger in a plate of French fries), a graphic sex scene between 'Gal' Galveston (the girl before Nash) and Jim, and a character being decapitated. The film underwent several rewrites which removed the gorier moments. Also, Fox was to have distributed the film before TriStarPictures took over.
