The Glimmer Man

Other mistake: When the killer and Segal are fighting in the last scene, and the killer is thrown out the window, you can clearly see the black shards on the window bend.

Other mistake: When Segal is about to climb down the front of the hotel near the end of the movie, the camera shows a brown rope being thrown over the sign for him to use, yet when he starts to come down the side of the building, he is using a black rope, and a harness.

Other mistake: In a fight scene between Segal and the killer, when he and Segal are fighting you can clearly see the stand in for the killer doing the martial arts is obviously shorter than the actor he's meant to be a double for.

Other mistake: At the scene of Coles' ex wife's murder, the police car nearest the footpath is impossibly parked. There is a lamppost inches from the front of the car and a tree inches from the rear. Did it parachute in?

Continuity mistake: When Campbell and Cole are inside the Chinese herbal-like shop, the woman behind the counter offers Campbell a drink. When he goes to drink it he holds the cup with two hands but in the following shot he's holding it with only his right hand. (00:14:05)

Trivia: Steven Seagal had some sort-of religious "breakthrough" before filming began and decided he didn't want to kill any villains in the movie. This caused some friction on the first day, when he was set to film a scene where he killed Stephen Tobolowsky. Tobolowsky, knowing how spiritual Seagal was, ended up convincing Seagal that killing his character was the right thing to do, as it would allow his character to be redeemed and reborn in a new body through reincarnation. The scene was filmed as it was scripted. Later, however, Tobolowsky got a call from the director, who informed him that Seagal kept improvising lines implying that Tobolowsky survived. Tobolowsky ended up having to come back out and record some wonky dialog of his character screaming "Finish me off!" to imply he survived and appease Seagal. In the end, the lines weren't used and Seagal's improvisations were simply cut out, so Tobolowsky is killed off as was originally planned.
