Martin Harris doesn't exist. He was a false identity assumed by Martin (whose real name is William). William is an assassin hired to kill Bressler and steal his research on a new resilient crop that is worth billions. Liz was his accomplice and the fake Martin was a backup in case William failed to pull through. William goes to the hotel and alerts security, causing everyone to flee the building. The bomb William planted in the hotel explodes, killing Liz. William kills Fake Martin and he and Gina change their identities and leave the country.
Factual error: In the last scene the ICE Train is leaving the station eastbound. It is not possible to enter these trains at the central station because all eastbound trains end in Berlin and have only one station left (Berlin Ostbahnhof). Every ICE leaving Berlin is going in the other (westbound) direction.
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.
