Carmen: They wouldn't say anything. Hiroshima was destroyed. Jean Rasczak: Correct. Violence has resolved more conflicts than anything else.

- Director Paul Verhoeven and cinematographer Jost Vacano shot one take of the co-ed shower scene in the nude themselves (on a dare from star Dina Meyer).
More ammunition was used in this film than in any previous movie.
In the German version the news commentator you hear all the time was dubbed by Egon Hoegen. This results in additional comic relief because he is the man who, with his rather dry and sarcastic voice, narrates every episode of "Der 7. Sinn" (1966) (a very well known traffic education show).
The German dubbing of this film, although changing a lot of the political issues of the story, is partly regarded as cult especially due to lines like "Das ganze Gehirn weggelutscht" ("They sucked his brains out") as performed by Joachim Kerzel.
The fort defense scene contains many references to Zulu (1964): "We're all gonna die!", "Fire at will" and "Fall back into the compound", along with some similar camera angles.
