* PlayingAgainstType: Creator/JasonStatham as Ethan, the chief villain[[spoiler:actually the DragonInChief]].



* RecycledScript: Had ''Film/PhoneBooth'' not spent 40 years in DevelopmentHell (and two and a half years on the shelf after being completed), this film probably would have never happened.
