Trivia

In the movie, the Latin phrase which Jack reads from his ancient Roman knife is: "leginum convictio scientia veritate." This phrase is very significant because it is read by Jack while sitting in an alley after fleeing his apartment with the clear intention to disappear forever and let his daughter die at the hands of her abductors. Jack picks up the knife and squeezes it while thinking about his past in the Roman army and reading the Latin inscription on the knife. In an instant he changes his mind and decides not to run and abandon his daughter. So, he packs the knife in his bag and in the next scene he surprises his "girlfriend" by asking her to help rescue his daughter. Ultimately he rescues his daughter, confronts the God of the Old Testament and walks away from an opportunity to eat his foe. So, the Latin phrase on the knife caused Jack to value his daughter's life and in that small way he reconnected with humanity.

The Latin phrase means: "Legion: Certainty of belief and knowledge of truth." When Jack grips the knife and thinks about this quote, he recalls the fellowship of battle when he was a part of something larger than himself and when he fought for things he knew were true. That inspires him to rescue his daughter in order to honor his long-ago commitment to do what he knows is right. This interpretation is consistent with his later comment that he is not rescuing his daughter for her sake or even in order to confront his enemy. He said, "I'm doing this for me." So, the Latin phrase inspired Jack to take action and act with integrity rather than to run away and continue to ignore his fundamental need for human contact. The Latin quote and Jack's reaction to it constitute a hopeful note in Jack's struggle to recapture his humanity. See more »

Goofs

When playing bingo with multiple cards, around 36mins in, Jack is suppose to be super focused. However the cards clearly show that he is not stamping the called numbers on all the cards. He stamped B10 on two cards while this number is still unstamped on at least two other cards. Also, some of the numbers you hear aren't stamped at all. See more »

Quotes

Cara: I didn't know you had a daughter until recently. Where is she, by the way?
Jack: Probably with her mother at this point.

First depiction of immortality that I have ever found believable.
24 December 2015 | by microwhateverSee all my reviews

I feel that so many people missed the point of this movie. To explain any more of his character or the world he lives in would simply dumb down the story and remove the mystery that makes this story so haunting. This movie depicts an immortal being that is totally detached from humanity. How could any person alive for 1000's of years still care about petty bullshit and after 1000's of years how wouldn't everything become petty bullshit. Henry Rollins has hilarious dead pan delivery that is funny without betraying his characters apathetic nature. This is brought across even in the action sequences which make them even more gripping and realistic.
