- [first lines] Toorop: Save the Planet.
Toorop: What is wrong with her?
Toorop: Look lady, I'm just a delivery boy and to me you're just a package. I'm not your friend, I'm not your brother, I'm not your boyfriend. In six days I'm gonna deliver you and never see you again. Sister Rebecca is right, we shouldn't even talk.
Toorop: Oh, you're a disgrace to the profession. You're not a mercenary, you're a fucking terrorist. You need two things to live in this business, your balls and your word. You don't have either! You know the difference between you and me, Karl? I still got both.
Toorop: No shit, Karl! If you wanted me dead you would have blown up the building.
- The film had to be bailed out by the studio's insurance company, after running over-budget and falling significantly behind schedule.
The round Sigil Tattoo seen on Vin Diesel's neck is known as "The Gate of the Necronomicon" and is protective, symbolizing Man, the Creator and The Watchers.
When the film was released, director Mathieu Kassovitz called it a "bad episode of "24" (2001)." In an interview with amctv.com, Kassovitz said that Twentieth Century Fox interfered throughout production, and he never had a chance to shoot a scene the way it was scripted, or the way he wanted it to be.
The studio apparently cut 70 minutes of Mathieu Kassovitz's original version, against his wishes, to get to a running time of 93 minutes.
The movie got almost no promotion, due to a feud between Mathieu Kassovitz and Fox studios over the final version.
