Trivia: When the film was released, Axl Rose told the crowd at Hilton Coliseum, Ames, IA, on 27th July 1988, not to waste their money and see "The Dead Pool," despite being in the film. Confirmable by listening to the show.

More trivia for The Dead Pool

Question: At the beginning after Callahan has killed two guys who shot at him, the third is running away. In real life, would he have faced charges for this? The first two were self defense but the 3rd guy was running away. He is not the type of person to deny the shooter was fleeing and not a threat.

Chosen answer: Under those circumstances, when someone has just committed an extreme act to protect themselves it would be hard to claim that the third shooting was deliberate murder, that he was thinking normally, and that there was no further danger. From Callahan's perspective, he might have believed the shooter was not actually fleeing and still posed a threat if he came back.
