A mild-mannered chemist and an ex-con must lead the counterstrike when a rogue group of military men, led by a renegade general, threaten a nerve gas attack from Alcatraz against San Francisco.
In the scene in which Paxton demands to know from Womack who Mason is, Paxton utters, "Yeah, I know all the cloak and dagger stories." This line was a direct reference to William Forsythe's earlier film Cloak & Dagger (1984).
Congressman Weaver and esteemed members of the Special Armed Services Committee, I come before you to protest a grave injustice... It has to stop.
(at around 1h 40 mins) Mason tries to open his cell door by manipulating the door lever using the torn duvet cover. At first he hits the one opening the cell next to his own, and as he gets it right on the second try we see that the lever falls down as the door goes up. However, the lever that opened the first door is still in the upright position.
