The Glimmer Man

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)

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.

Continuity mistake: When Cole and Campbell are at the motel crime scene looking at the bodies on the wall, in one shot the woman's face is looking away from the male, but in the next shot she is now looking towards the male. (00:04:00)

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.

Jack Cole: You know, when you wake up in the morning and look in the mirror, I think you're probably happy. Pleased at what you see. And that disturbs me. So I'm gonna take it on as my responsibility to make sure that you never get to look in the mirror again.
Donald Cunningham: I woke up happy, I'm goin' to bed happy. 'Cause you're gonna be dead.

Jim Campbell: Look, why don't we just get you some red boots and a cape, so you can fly around the city and stop ALL the crime.

Jack Cole: It's called a mala. Tibetan pray beads.
Jim Campbell: What do you use 'em for?
Jack Cole: I use 'em to calm my mind and to purify my thoughts.
Jim Campbell: Yeah, I use Jack Daniels.
Jack Cole: See now, we're trying to go to same place. We're just using different technique.
Jim Campbell: Except I don't wear the bottle around my neck.
Jack Cole: That's because you'd lose your job if you did.
