** And a ''very'' young Creator/KimCoates, nearly thirty years pre Series/SonsOfAnarchy, gets punched to death by Bruce Willis.
* TroubledProduction: Although not on [[Film/ApocalypseNow this]] level, this film had a very troubled production.
** '''EVERYBODY''' involved in the production of the film had a miserable time working with it.
** MichaelKamen and BruceWillis took over the production and made significant changes to ShaneBlack's script and made TonyScott film many scenes that he didn't like under threat of being fired from production.
*** Not even '''THAT''' made Kamen like the film.
** Producer Joel Silver named it [[OldShame one of three worst experiences of his life]], while Bruce Willis swore he will never work with Silver again.
** Damon Wayans and Bruce Willis despised each other, even though they played buddies in the film.
** Editor Stuart Baird was hired to completely re-edit the film after the original cut of the film turned out to be an borderline unwatchable workprint release.

* AlternativeCharacterInterpretation: A case can be made for Joe being a SociopathicHero rather than a KnightInSourArmor. In addition to his {{Jerkass}} tendencies, his hostile and borderline-abusive interactions with his wife and daughter call his morality into question. He also seems to have a propensity to violence, as evidenced when he antagonizes Jimmy into hitting him.
* DarknessInducedAudienceApathy: This could be a reason why it underperformed at the box office.

* LikeYouWouldReallyDoIt: Unintentional, retrospective aversion for modern viewers--yes, they really ''would'' kill off Creator/HalleBerry's character after a couple of scenes, because when this film was made she was a no-name playing a bit part (though she still gets a card to herself in the opening credits).
