New this month Question: Does Liam Neeson (Dr. Martin Harris) ever pick up a gun? And if so, when? I've seen him with a gun on posters and the DVD case, but I don't think I've seen him with a gun in the film.

Question: How does the former boss of Liam Neeson (Dr. Martin Harris) find the private detective the latter is using for help? He calls him and just shows up.

Answer: He calls him because Liam Neeson told him to, because he still remembered him.

Question: What (if any) is the significance of the "OZ" graffiti that pops up throughout the film? It became quite distracting as I thought it would pay off at the end of the film.

Answer: The 'OZ' sprayer is a very disturbed man who claims to be an artist but the courts think otherwise. You can found his OZ (which he claims to be read OLI!) everywhere in Berlin and Hamburg. It has absolutely nothing to do with the movie but you can't film a wide open scene in Berlin without taping it.

Question: Why do they simply kill dozens of people in the movie, but with him it has to be something long and drawn out, like poison in the hospital or drugs in the parking garage?

Answer: Common movie, and literary, trope. The hero can never be taken down by a simple bullet in the back, otherwise there'd be no suspense, no story. It doesn't make sense, but it's more exciting this way.

Trivia

Throughout the movie if you look in the background at the various graffiti tags, one in particular stands out. Look for the tag OZ. In almost every scene that has graffiti on the walls you 'll see it somewhere in the background, sometimes more than once. Although it is common for graffiti artists to leave multiple marks in multiple areas, Berlin is a big city and it can be spotted too often for it to be coincidence.
