The company name "Cyrez" was originally "Cyrex", but the real-life company Cyrix complained. The movie had been shot, but all dialogue was dubbed and company logos were digitally altered during post-production. See more »

As one of the later Arnold movies and a suspicious title, there are
initially serious worries about how good this film will be. Fortunately
it turned out to be a great movie in the end. The only nitpick would be
those obviously fake CGI crocodiles used in one scene but otherwise,
the movie has consistency in quality. This movie also introduced the
famous rail gun which became an instant hit when videogames copied it.
The rail gun in the movie itself is more like a super fast rocket
launcher than a sniping weapon. The story itself, surrounds the
marketing of that weapon. The acting is very good as is the screenplay
and cinematography. This film isn't anything new, isn't a groundbreaker
in any way but is still highly enjoyable.
