Trivia

The 2001 Game Boy Advance game "Ecks vs. Sever" was actually based on an early script draft for this film, not the other way around. The game's producers later made a sequel to that game that was based on the finished version of this movie. See more »

Goofs

The film states that the FBI doesn't operate in Vancouver, Canada. The FBI often operates in other countries, with the permission and co-operation of foreign governments and law-enforcement organizations. At the beginning, Julio Martin tells Ecks that they will be operating as part of a trans-national task force. See more »

More bang for your buck
13 January 2004 | by (WI) – See all my reviews

I was not impressed or disgusted enough to leave a comment on this film. So why am I typing now? I saw this was in the bottom 100 here on IMDB. It wasn't that bad. Actually I enjoyed it, but I was in the mood to not think and just watch stuff blow up (having a bad day). That's what I got. Lots and lots of explosions, and fun action, there were more explosions then dialouge. There is some plot here, but don't watch this for realism or story. It's a cartoon, a video game, just mindless action and entertainment, and thats why its worth seeing and doesn't belong on the bottom 100.

It doesn't come close to being a must see action flick (see the first 2 Lethal Weapons, Die Hard, Escape from New York or dozens of others), but it's not that bad.
