Trivia

One reason Sylvester Stallone agreed to act in this movie was to help him overcome his fear of confined spaces. He'd agreed to appear in Cliffhanger (1993) to help him overcome his fear of heights.
Sylvester Stallone said this would be his last action film because he was getting too old for the genre. However, he made Driven (2001), Rocky Balboa (2006), Rambo (2008), and the Expendables movies afterward.
Sylvester Stallone was paid 17.5 million dollars to appear in this film.
Rob Cohen originally wanted Nicolas Cage to play Kit Latura. Universal execs felt he was more of a "character actor", and Sylvester Stallone was more commercially viable.
Sylvester Stallone's son, Sage Stallone, plays Vincent.
Whilst shooting in Rome, Sylvester Stallone insisted on staying at the luxurious Excelsior Hotel which charged 3,600 dollars a night. The Rome shoot lasted 3 months.
The tunnel sequences were filmed in Rome's Cinecitta Studios, on a set a third of a mile long. Cinecitta was chosen as the main studio set because of its enormous floodable sound stages.
The toxic explosion that seals both ends of the tunnel, before Kit Latura enters, was actually a miniature model.

Spoilers 

The trivia item below may give away important plot points.

Probably unintentional but, lead character Kit Latura played by Sylvester Stallone appears in rescue equipment similar to Chris Redfield's S.T.A.R.S. gear from Resident Evil. Both the first game of Resident Evil and the movie Daylight were released in 1996 only a few months apart.
