Trivia During the script-writing process, science fiction author Joe Haldeman and director Stuart Gordon clashed on the vision of the film. Halderman wanted a dramatic, serious science fiction film. Gordon however wanted to liven it up and use stereotypes. In Haldeman's words, "I would try to change the science into something reasonable; Stuart would change it back to Saturday-morning cartoon stuff. I tried to make believable, reasonable characters, and Stuart would insist on throwing in clichés and caricatures. It was especially annoying because it was a story about soldiers, and I was the only person around who'd ever been one." As they were saying their goodbyes to one another, Gordon pinpointed the problem. He said "Joe, our problem is that you're writing a movie for adults that children can enjoy, but I'm directing a movie for children that adults can enjoy!" See more »
Goofs When Athena confronts Achilles in his apartment to render him unconscious with an injector, it's all too easy to spot Athena pulling what is clearly a glue gun out of her outfit. This is then "matched" to a much better looking prop injector in an insert - followed by a cut back to the shot with the original glue gun. See more »
