Trivia

A video game featuring motion captured sprites like Mortal Kombat was concepted to co-inside with the movie, having the actors of the film and their stunt doubles provide the captured images. However it was deemed it could not be completed in the same amount of time as the movie, so was scrapped. After the movies release the film studio admitted it was a stroke of luck the game didn't go ahead. See more »

Goofs

When Shuko and the gang are in his office listening to the computer read the information on the Lee brothers, it says Billy is 17 and Jimmy is 18. Right before the Lee brothers fight the gangs in the junk yard there is a closeup of one of the gang members of the Clowns reading the Lee's information. It is says Jimmy was born on 2/24/90 and Billy was born on 2/17/92. If the movie takes place in 2007 that would make Jimmy 17 and Billy 15. See more »

Oh, for crying out loud. This was a fun little movie with lots of good action in it that never takes itself too seriously. For what it was intended to be, it can't possibly rate this low. Was it honestly worse than "Highlander 2", with its big budget and big-name stars? Or "Glen or Glenda", a shining example of deep cinematic ineptitude? I don't think so!
