Trivia

Started as a spec script by Alan McElroy in the mid-late eighties under the title 'Legion' which was later renamed 'Gunner'. In 1988, the project almost got made at Vestron Pictures with Dwight H. Little to direct and starring Dolph Lundgren but it got stopped with Charles W. Fries holding it up and not wanting to do it.. See more »

Goofs

The FBI doesn't operate in Vancouver because it is in Canada the FBI only operates in the United States

In fact, the FBI often operates internationally with the permission and co-operation of other countries' governments and law-enforcement organisations.

At the beginning of this film (at about 10:25) Julio Martin specifically tells Ecks that they will be operating as part of a trans-national task force. See more »

Never mind the ballistics, here's the pathologist
14 September 2003 | by (King Co., WA, United States) – See all my reviews

When I say "Ballistic: Ecks vs. Sever" was incredible, I don't mean that in a good way. All the main characters are current or former US federal agents, presumably to keep it interesting, but all the action takes places in Vancouver, BC, which, last time I looked, was not in the United States. The basic storyline was fairly straightforward (and rather hackneyed), but the motivations of the various characters were utterly incomprehensible. The film was somewhat on the short side, and I couldn't escape the feeling that the three scenes which might have tied together the loose ends inexplicably ended up on the cutting room floor. Banderas phoned in his performance (for God's sake, enunciate, man), and the musical score was just irritating. The only two things "Ballistic" had going for it were the presence of some rarely-seen hardware (fun for you firearms buffs) and some spectacular action sequences (though these were plagued by some annoying clichés, such as a protective vest preventing all injury to a character, and henchmen showing complete disregard for personal safety), and these were simply not enough to save this turkey. Avoid.
