More Movie Taglines:
- In the near future, you don't live to play... you'll play to live.
- Who's playing you?
- Kable: [For the first time, Kable is speaking with Simon, his controller in the game] You sound like a little kid. Simon: I'm seventeen, actually. Kable: Jesus Christ, why am I not dead yet? Simon: Because I am a bad ass motherfucker.
Ken Castle: I hope one day to have the opportunity to breach your firewall, Miss Parker Smith. [kisses her hand]
[last lines] Geek Leader: Well played, Kable.
Kable: Turn me around.
Female News Host #1: On a personal note, that shit was fucked up! News Co-Host #1: Yeah it was. I literally pissed myself.
- The motorcycle driven by Trace is a Buell Firebolt.
The opening montage of time-lapse shots and other scenes of the world where we see ads for Kable and/or graffiti of Ken Castle overlaid on buildings or walls are mostly taken from Ron Fricke's wordless film Baraka (1992), for example, the shots of the Giza Pyramids, India, homeless man sleeping under a bridge among others.
The news anchors are played by "Psych" (2006) co-stars James Roday and Maggie Lawson who as of the film's release, were also in their third year of a relationship.
