- Hilarious in Hindsight:
- Ryan Gosling and Garret Dillahunt, who both played Neo-Nazis in this picture, would later be part of well-known franchises involving cyborgs.
- While Gosling's and Dillahunt's characters and their skinhead accomplices trash a synagogue with Gosling's character trying to tell them not to disrespect the Torah, one of the skinheads demeaningly references Raiders of the Lost Ark and the climatic opening of the Ark scene. Cut to 2017, where Gosling would get to co-star with the said film's star Harrison Ford in Blade Runner 2049.
- Misaimed Fandom: If the YouTube comments for the film are any indication, then the Nazi Villain Protagonist / Anti-Hero of the film has earned a lot of white supremacist fans despite the film being anti-Nazi and the protagonist being Jewish. Disturbingly appropriate, since the film was inspired by the life of Dan Burros, a Neo-Nazi who committed suicide when his Jewish identity was revealed. American Nazi Party leader George Lincoln Rockwell publicly praised Burros on his death. Then he said that Jews were "a unique people with a distinct mass of mental disorders" and attributed the suicide to "this unfortunate Jewish psychosis".
- Retroactive Recognition: Garret Dillahunt (aka Krug from The Last House on the Left 2009 remake and Cromartie from Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles) as a Neo-Nazi skinhead.
