Trivia

The character "Sam Raimi" is named after director Sam Raimi. In one scene, Raimi fires a missile at the Warbeast. The succeeding shot where the camera follows the homing missile in fast-forward is a likely homage to Raimi's The Evil Dead (1981) where a similar filming technique portrays an unspecified evil charging through the woods.

Yutani's declaration of "Shouryuken" before opening fire is a reference to the video game Street Fighter 2. It literally translates as "Rising Dragon Fist", and is the battle cry attached to an unstoppable uppercut move.

The film was banned in several countries, including Iraq, China, Malaysia and Australia among others. The Board of Film Censors accuse the film of excessive violence (perhaps the most famous scene from the film, the scene of the elevator, where they were censored 12 seconds), and screening for drug habits (in one of the scenes of the film, the cast of actors smoked several giants cannabis cigarettes). But undoubtedly the most censored of the film was the character played by Brad Dourif, Jack Dante. The character was accused of violent acute psychosis, profanity, lewd behavior, incitement to murder and incitement to rape. Some countries also censored a scene in which dead babies showed the arms of the company, and this scene reported on numerous occasions.
