Throughout the movie Col. Manning says only one word: the name of his sister, "Joyce". See more »
Joyce introduces Mexican police Sgt. Murillo as "This is Sergeant Luis of the Mexican State Police". There is no such organization as "Mexican State Police"; each state in Mexico has its own police force, so in the state of Morelos it would be "Morelos State Police", in the state of Guerrero it would be "Guerrero State Police", etc. See more »
I saw this movie when I was a kid, and then again last year, 2000, on AMC's MonsterFest Halloween week. A sequel to The Amazing Colossal Man has the giant alive and well. His face, being disfigured by his being attacked and the fall off of Hoover Dam in the original, scared the crap outta me when I was a kid. The sounds he made were scary for kids too. It may not be the special effects extravaganza that we see in todays movies but hey, I really enjoyed this movie. If you're a fan of the old monster flicks, watch this one.
