Crosses the Line Twice: The human shield scene. A poor bystander getting caught in the line of fire and shot by Richter's men when they're trying to kill Quaid is horrible. Quaid grabbing his corpse, using it to protect himself from several more rounds of gunfire, and then throwing his now completely bloodied up body onto his pursuers on the other hand? Hilarious.
Evil Is Sexy: Lori, played by the ever-so-lovely Sharon Stone.
An advertisement for Fuji Film is seen in the background of one scene. The film's creators couldn't have predicted that analog photography would be all but killed off by digital photography long before 2084 (the year in which the movie is set).
Compare Robert Picardo's mindless robot here to his snippy, sarcastic Doctor from Star Trek: Voyager.
