The city shown as "Concepción, Chile," at the beginning of the movie is nothing like the real location. Concepción is located along a river (the Bíobío), not a sea, and has a cold and rainy climate, many modern buildings (especially in the city center, where the cathedral is located), and no heavy industry. Additionally, the Chilean police uniform is dark green, with long jackets and boots and no beret, and Chilean police and Armed Forces personnel are not allowed to wear beards, only mustaches with superior officer approval.
The opening logos are unique and blend into one another: a red Warner Bros. logo crumbles into dust to reveal a pink-tinted Village Roadshow Pictures logo, which in turn is obscured by clouds that part to reveal the Dark Castle Entertainment logo.
