The character of Static remarks about radar's 'use' of a two-way radio and that "Dick Tracy used it before it was invented." Static is played by Ralph Byrd, who was the first to portray Dick Tracy on screen in 1937. See more »
During the many car pursuit scenes the background images almost never match from interior cab shot to long full shot of highway. See more »
This movie seems to think radar is some super weapon that can do absolutely anything. I mean, it begins with quick scene on how radar was important in World War II. While this might seem fair enough, the movie takes radar's importance to ludicrous levels. When a truck is hijacked, the government uses radar to track it down. Radar mounted on a vehicle can apparently deliver TV quality images that follow the truck like a camera (I wonder why?). You can't say a bad thing about radar in this film. Don't worry, though. The guys from MST3K came to the rescue, and made it quite enjoyable (like they always do with bad movies) with their running commentary.
