In the year 2154, the very wealthy live on a man-made space station while the rest of the population resides on a ruined Earth. A man takes on a mission that could bring equality to the polarized worlds.
In the late 21st century Earth was diseased, polluted and vastly overpopulated.
While no current shoulder-fired weapon is able to achieve escape velocity and overtake a traveling spacecraft, canonical sources list the primary purpose of the "4Sure" ballistic missile launcher used by Kruger as engagement of targets in earth orbit. The missile is stated to travel 518 km/hr, or 45 times earth escape velocity. The effective range is described as in excess of 15,000 miles, therefore the weapon is more than capable of intercepting the illegal spacecraft as depicted.
In the soundtrack part of the end titles it says:
"Piano Concerto No. 8 in C minor 'Pathetique' - Adagio Cantabile Written by Ludwig van Beethoven"
L. v. Beethoven wrote only five piano concertos (his eighth piano sonata is titled "Pathetique" however).
