Bill Pope (Ryan Reynolds) is a CIA agent on a mission in London tracking down a shadowy hacker nicknamed "The Dutchman." When he gets mysteriously ambushed and killed, an experimental procedure is used to transfer his memories into dangerous convict Jericho Stewart (Kevin Costner). When he wakes up with the CIA agent's memories, his mission is to find The Dutchman and make the deal with him before the hacker launches ICBM's and starts World War III. But complications soon arise and the mission turns personal.
Sound stages at Pinewood Studios were used for Bill Pope (Ryan Reynolds)'s basement, scenes inside a U-boat, and one of production designer Jon Henson's favorite sets of all: Jerico Stewart's prison cell. "It was hard to make the prison cell work, as Jerico had to be chained to the ceiling with a neck brace," said Henson. "Kevin wanted to be able to swing around the room on this chain, but prison cells tend to be cramped environments. We decided he would be housed in a special high-security unit. We built the ceilings very low, which helped with the feeling of claustrophobia. We added a small window in the center of the ceiling, which gave us an interesting light source, and we also based the colorations and ironwork on existing U.S. prison environments, that I think all of that combined, gives it some realism," said Henson.

It is a physical impossibility to remotely launch a missile from a submarine.
It literally takes several different safe combinations, known to several different officers, to get the dozen or so physical keys that are then inserted and turned in a dozen different locations.
The sub also needs to go through specific evolutions to prepare for the launch of a missile, such as mandatory depth, speed, and trim limitations, not to mention the launch control must sequenced specific buttons and switches in specific ways at specific moments in a countdown process that takes AT LEAST 12 minutes to accomplish once power has been applied to the launch systems.
It would be IMPOSSIBLE to simple press a button on a remote computer and have a ship launched missile OF ANY KIND fire within seconds of a cold start. See more »
They messed with my brain. Thought they knew what they'd get, but they were wrong. They don't know me. I do not know what happens next, but this I do know: you hurt me... I hurt you worse.
