  • Trivia

    • When Reese and Finch go to intercept the consulate car transporting Heinlein, Reese parks his car sideways in the middle of the street. The view down the street shows a streetlight and several parked cars on the right. When Reese braces the sniper rifle on the car and looks down the street, the next shot places him approximately half the distance away from the same streetlight and parked cars.
