* SpiritualSuccessor:
** The film looked and felt enough like ''Series/MiamiVice'' that Creator/MichaelMann tried to sue for plagiarism. He wasn't successful. Ironically, William Petersen's performance in the film is what convinced Mann to cast him in ''{{Film/Manhunter}}''.
** If you watch a double-bill of this and ''Film/RepoMan'', you'll notice that both films feature (a) cinematography by Robby Müller and (b) car chases in the LA storm drains.
