* ArtisticLicense: This movie requires some MST3KMantra ("It's just a show") due to a lack of {{Consistency}} in exactly ''what'' machines can come to life. Some mechanical items should be "alive" but aren't (like cars and the mechanical parts of the arsenal of weapons), and some things that really shouldn't be alive are (the side-view mirror moving, the valve on the gas refill truck, the swivel for the small military car's machine gun).
