  • All-Star Cast: Both David Bowie and Ryuichi Sakamoto were chosen for their status as well-known musicians in their own countries. The film also stars Takeshi Kitano as Sergeant Hara.
  • Fake Brit: Jack Thompson (Australian) as the British Group Captain Hicksley. Thompson tries an English accent but doesn't quite pull it off.
