Added DiffLines:

** Sam Jackson is hard to miss, they probably just saw his face.


** Because he's an evil bastard who wants to do it himself. Why does he need a reason beyond that?

* Why are the mercenaries this dedicated? Mercenaries aren't fighting for an ideology or belief, they fight to get paid. Dozens, possibly hundreds, of them are killed off over the course of the movie but at no point do they ever seem to consider that this job isn't worth the pay. And even if they ''do'' survive and get paid, their company are now international criminals.


** Kincaid established that he only kills people he finds to be evil. Given the crimes Dukovich was guilty of, it's safe to assume he's the most evil man Kincaid has ever come across. Given that Dukhovich has been trying to kill Kincaid for the last couple of days and [[spoiler:he shot Bryce]], it comes to no surprise that he would want to make sure Dukovich gets what's coming to him.

Added DiffLines:

** Interpol's Assistant Director is TheMole in the agency, so it's likely he pulled some strings to put Dukhovich in minimum security.


* One thing I need to understand with the EstablishingCharacterMoment for Dukhovich is, why does he personally shoot the dissident professor's wife and kids, rather than have one of his men do it?

* How were Dumhovich's mooks able to find Kincaid over and over again? It's understandable when he still had a cellphone on him, but how could they detect him in a normal car going down the highway?

** Sure we would. Dukhovich could have had a fanatically-loyal lieutenant working to kill Kincaid instead of Dukhovich calling all the shots personally. ''Film/AirForceOne'' has a similar "free the dictator" background for its immediate action, and the dictator in that has nothing to do with organizing the action.

* In the movie the people gathered in front of the court were protesting against the PresidentEvil of Belarus. They are holding the current Belarusian flag. In real life, opponents to the regime in Belarus refuse to use that flag (as it was the former Soviet Belarus flag and forced upon the people in a rigged election), preferring to use the white-red-white flag in use from 1991-1995 [[https://www.washingtonpost.com/world/europe/belarus-activists-arrested-before-planned-protest/2017/03/25/98e3f6da-114e-11e7-aa57-2ca1b05c41b8_story.html?utm_term=.69e8fb386d2e]]. Is this a case of ArtisticLicenseHistory or something?
