Both versions have different endings:

In the German TV version follows the scene with Angel and the board of directors to the scene of Robert and Sara fleeing from the hospital. Afterwards you can see them in an unknown "holy" place with the daughter. Robert can hear the voices of the demonstrators in the background while he's thoughtfully holding his daughter and giving her a kiss. Then he and Sara go over to some people and the end credits start.



The US version changes-over directly after the escape from the hospital to the scene of Robert and Sara being in the "holy" place. Robert's thoughtfully holding his daughter and he can hear the voices of the demonstrators in the background. Next up there's a plane trying to land. Scene change to a man and some other people who just deplaned. A little later you can see Robert masqueraded with a full beard. He hears in the background once again the voices "Stop the project!" etc.; shortly after there's the scene with the board of directors. But it's not the full scene as it is in the German version. Moreover there are some shots of Robert prepositioning some sticks of dynamite during Angel's speech. Finally the door to the board of directors opens and then there's an explosion. The picture freezes, a quote from the Bible follows and the end credits start.
- sec



The oddness: The German version contains the more harmless ending, but the sound track is equal to the US version. This means: during the end credits you can hear a landing plane and the voices Robert hears when he stands at the moving stairs on the airport! Another very old German TV version really contains this other end sequence.

Based on the editing technique and the logic, the ending of the US version seems to be the original end sequence.
