Man on Fire

Trivia: When Pita is doing her homework and notices Creasy smiling, they play a game to see who smiles first. This scene was completely improvised.

Trivia: In the original ending Creasy is taken to "The Voice" for search and interrogation. After some interesting dialogue, a watch among Creasy's personal effects begins to beep and there is a huge explosion. Sharp eyed viewers will remember this ending was set up during the suppository bomb scene under the bridge where Creasy showed an unused charger, pager, watch, and detonator to the victim. The producers thought that this alternate ending screened as too improbable and closed the plot too neatly.

Continuity mistake: When Creasy is cutting off the fingers of Jorge Gonzales, the sunglasses resting on Gonzales's nose constantly changes from one shot to the next. In some they're halfway down his nose so you can see his eyes, in others they're pushed all the way up. (01:18:00 - 01:21:00)

Chosen answer: Creasy swimming in the pool can be considered as as a way to be close to Pita. His blood in the water could also be interpreted as him and Pita becoming one.

Answer: The reason he was swimming in the pool is because he had open bullet hole wounds to his body, the chlorine and bleach in a swimming pool kill bacteria thus helping him from not dying of gangrene before he has a chance to get his revenge. He knew from the first bullet to his body he was not going to make it out alive so he did what he had to do to get as far as he possibly could. He believed she was dead, he had nothing to live for, he was killing as many as he could before he fell off the wagon.
