The film is a major influence behind the Grand Theft Auto (1997) (Video Game) franchise and in particular Grand Theft Auto: Vice City (2002).
...los que no se adapten... al esfuerzo y al heroísmo de una revolución... ¡No los queremos! ¡No los necesitamos!
When Manny gets Tony, after basketball, both walk towards the gate, meanwhile a bearded character with a spotted brown shirt is walking behind them in and out of the camera for no apparent reason, when Manny and Tony reach the gate to check the incoming Rebenga, that same bearded brown-shirted man enters through the gate from outside, this time wearing a hat and with a limp leg.
In the opening we see a crawl text (with narrator) that reads: "In May of 1980, Fidel Castro in an effort to normalize relations with the Carter Administration opened the harbor at Mariel, Cuba with the apparent intention of letting some of his people join their relatives in the United States. Within seventy-two hours, 3,000 U.S. boats were headed for Cuba. In the next few weeks, it became evident that Castro was forcing the boat owners to carry back with them not only their relatives but the dregs of his jail population. By the time the port was closed 125,000 'Marielitos' had landed in Florida. An estimated 25,000 had criminal records. This is the story of that minority those they call 'Los Bandidos'."
