Trivia
Scriptwriter John Strysik has stated that the last name of Stephen Rea's character - Bardo - comes from the Buddhist term for an intermediate or transitional state of being, and thus is a reference to the life-or-death situation Tom experiences.

Stuart Gordon:  The resident who gets yelled at by Rashid's girlfriend in the apartment hallway.

Based on a real event in 2001. Chante Mallard, a black woman in Fort Worth, Texas, was driving drunk and on ecstasy when she struck Gregory Biggs, a homeless man, who became lodged in her car's windshield. She then drove home, locked the car in the garage, and left Biggs to die. After bragging about "killing a white man" in the presence of an enemy who turned her in, Mallard was convicted of murder and evidence tampering and sentenced to fifty years in prison.

Goofs
Stephen Rea's character's broken leg changes from right to left several times in the movie.

In the scene where Bardo is hit, the view through the windshield from the inside towards the front shows that it is completely intact. In a reverse shot immediately following this, and just before Bardo goes through the windshield, you can see that the glass is cracked. This is likely to facilitate the stuntman going into the vehicle instead of bouncing off of it when he is hit.

When Bardo does hit the windshield, it breaks rather large, jagged pieces. Automotive windshields are made from a laminated safety glass. They do not break in sheets, but instead "spider-web" when they are struck.
