Trivia

Kim Cattrall still has her hairdo (shaved off sideburns) from Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country (1991). This indicates, that the shooting of "Split Second" happened shortly after the completion of ST VI. See more »

Goofs

Although the film is supposedly set in a flooded London, all the footage shot along the Thames, shows the water levels at a perfectly normal level. This is most evident when we see the Thames flood barrier, which is always shown open. (The barrier was built in the early 80's to protect many London boroughs from rising sea levels) See more »

Quotes

Stone: [to Durkin while grabbing his necktie] Have you been following me?
Thrasher: Damn right he has! Paranoid people with guns are a menace to society!
Stone: [to Thrasher while pulling Durkin forward by his necktie] You'd be paranoid too if you had a dipshit like this following you!

The best in action-horror...
20 November 1998 | by (Ithaca, NY) – See all my reviews

A great film set in a dystopian future London. Well paced and interestingly plotted, with an emphasis on the proper human reaction to a seemingly unkillable monster - bigger guns. A classic for its music, dialogue and firepower.
