- Sarah, Tucker's girlfriend, meets a truly horrific demise at the beginning of the film. Her climbing rig malfunctions and despite Walker's best efforts to try and save her, she plummets to her death.
- Forget action movies, Kynette and Delmar wouldn't be out of place as the villains of a Slasher Movie. Kynette is a steely, knife-toting maniac who hunts Gabe through the mountain caves like Ghostface, even wielding the same knife. Delmar is a sadistic brute who savagely kicks the shit out of Tucker, laughing all the while and likening it to a soccer game.
- The rough cut was originally NC-17 rated, before cutting down to an R rating, mostly the revolving around the actions of the terrorists and their death scenes, thus Qualen and his goons could be considered to be a Knight of Cerebus group even in comparison to other villains in "Die Hard" on an X films. Thanks to director Renny Harlin, who himself had already created a Knight of Cerebus in Die Hard 2.
