* The NERVA nuclear rocket project, used to propel ''Churchill'' from LEO to the alien ship, [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/NERVA actually existed]], albeit never as flight-capable hardware thanks to the general withdrawal from manned space exploration and the political difficulties around nuclear propulsion in general. Seeing NERVA turn up in a film, especially a film with as little concern for scientific accuracy as this one, was a treat.
* Uh, how about the fact that Mathilda May walks around in her birthday suit for the entire film? Possibly the bravest thing that any actress has ever done. She even puts Creator/NatashaHenstridge and Creator/MillaJovovich to shame! Mathilda deserves a medal.
* The entire end sequence where London is overrun by zombie/vamps reaches apocalyptic heights rarely seen even today in movies.
