“You know, I had a lot of terrific guys in the cutting room and a few of them would say, ‘Maggie, it’s great that you’re doing it because, you know, we would have stopped ages ago with the explosions, and that would have been cool, and we would have been happy.’ But, you know, it wasn’t enough for me. I really had to feel that it was an emotional content to a lot of the stunts and try to keep the characters in there, so, you know, maybe I did bring that quality to the film.”
