More Movie Taglines:
- Who will rule the future?
- Spectacular science-fiction/adventure on blazing skates!
- Gavial: [making improper advances] Terra? I like the sweat. Terra: Get out, you creature of filth! Gavial: Hey, I just wanna talk. Maybe a little HANDS-ON PARLEY? Terra: [hits him with her shovel] Now I'm listening. Gavial: [backs off] Next time.
The Warden: [words of wisdom to the Solarbabies] Remember, behavior determines existence... Stick with us, learn to serve the Order, and you'll achieve a decent life-grid.
Tutor Nover: [commenting on a propaganda-film in the Orphanage-classroom] They called themselves Eco-warriors, "Eco" being taken from... what? Rabbit? Rabbit: Hey, if they took it, they should give it back.
Grock: [after the skateball game/attempted Earth Police-bust] Scorpions. You've had special treatment, favors, and training by experts from my maiming squads. Do you deny that...? Gavial: No, Strictor Grock. Grock: Yet you just allowed yourselves to be TRASHED, by left-brain rollers using homemade gear. Gavial: Strictor, if we just had... Grock: *Cut your breath*, before you betray your putrid thinking!
Grock: It's an odd name for a skateball team, don't you think? "Solarbabies." Too soft, not menacing enough. Why do you suppose they chose it? The Warden: They don't seem to need anything more menacing, do they? They always seem to win.
- The movie was filmed on location in Spain, a country selected for its abundant desert landscape. Ironically, production was held up for several weeks due to...rain!
