Colonel Isaac Johnson: Bob Lee Swagger, you're a hard man to find. Bob Lee Swagger: Not hard enough.
  • The ranch shootout scene was scaled back due to the violence. Originally, the scene in which Bob Lee Swagger ('Mark Wahlberg') kills a bodyguard with a knife to the throat was scaled back tremendously. Originally, the knife was supposed to exit through his nose, causing blood to spray on Swagger. The scene was cut not because the MPAA deemed the scene too brutal.
  • Swagger's name maybe be a play on the term "SWAG". In sniping terms it stands for "Sophisticated Wild Ass Guess", a quick calculation made on the fly.
  • The sudden cut to the Montana Senator shows him firing a shotgun near the camera in hunting gear very similar to 'Dick Cheney'.
  • The portraits on the walls in the room where the conspirators meet in Langley, Virginia are all of Republican presidents.
  • This was the final film to play the landmark Mann National Theater in Westwood, CA before it closed on April 20, 2007.
