In the scene at the fitness studio where Viktor 'Rosta' Rostavili's girlfriend works, people are exercising to music. The record they are dancing to is Ramos - Jackin' National Anthem. This is a very early House Music track. House music originated in Chicago where the film is set, but at that time would not have been well known outside of Chicago. Chicago spawned this music genre and this is the earliest use of House Music in mainstream movies. Around the time of the making of this film, Acid House was just starting. This music was also from Chicago but relatively unknown outside the city at the time was produced using a Japanese synthesizer called a Roland TB-303. 303 is also the hotel room number that Arnold Schwarzenegger
stays in. See more
In the article by Fowler in the London Times there is the word "kilometers" with the American spelling rather than the British spelling "kilometres". It is very unlikely that an article by a British journalist in a British newspaper would use this spelling. It is also unlikely a British newspaper would use Kilometres, as Britain still uses imperial miles, road signs, speed limits etc are all still stated in Miles. Although for smaller measurements, the metric system is used, Kilo's instead of Pounds and Centimetres in place of inches. See more

In the opening credits certain letters are reversed so as to imitate Russian Cyrillic script. In particular, "Rs" and "Ns" are reversed. See more
