Correction: It's not a rubber knife. It's a boning knife, which is designed to be flexible. When the killer is slicing the newspaper with the knife, he puts so much pressure on the knife that the blade bends as it should (although most rubber knives aren't sharp enough to slice up newspaper as he does).

Corrected entry: After Rook kills the cameraman and goes after the reporter, when she is sitting in his chair, you see that his knife is now clean.

Correction: Rook could have cleaned his knife at any time after killing the cameraman.

Visible crew/equipment: In the radio control car chase scenes over the humpy streets, camera equipment is visible in the rear seat area of the lead car.

Question: Liam Neeson says he needed Johnny Squares as "a video tie-in." What does he mean by this? How does a music video help a film or vice versa?

Chosen answer: MTV was extremely popular in 1988, especially with the young demographic his film was intended for. Having a music video tie-in would increase the film's exposure as well as its potential box office performance.
