* VindicatedByHistory: At the time of its release, it received mixed reviews, and while it didn't flop, it wasn't a blockbuster either. Now, it's considered a quintessential Creator/BruceWillis action thriller on par with ''Film/DieHard''.

* CompleteMonster: [[TheDragon Milo]], in Shane Black's original screenplay, is significantly nastier than he is in the final product, even managing to eclipse his boss [[BigBad Sheldon Marcone]]. A director of {{snuff film}}s on top of being a [[PsychoForHire psychotic hitman]] for Marcone, Milo routinely has young women tricked or kidnapped to be brutally murdered by his henchmen for the purpose of his films. Once Marcone orders the assassination of [[CorruptPolitician Senator Calvin Baynard]], Milo kidnaps the hero Joe Hallenbeck and his wife Sarah and threatens to use Sarah as the next star in his snuff films if Joe doesn't kill Baynard, with full intent of simply [[ManOnFire burning Joe to death]] and using him to soak up guilt as he and Marcone walk off free. Along the way, Milo massacres an innocent family simply because they inconvenience him and, after murdering Baynard and all of his men before being defeated and scarred by Joe, murders his way back to Joe and tries to furiously gun down him and his entire family in revenge.

** Joe says that all the makeup his daughter wears makes her "look like a goddamn raccoon". Fast-forward to 2006 and in the animated film ''Film/OverTheHedge'', Creator/BruceWillis actually [[PlayingAgainstType provided the voice for a raccoon]].
