Number 5 of a group of experimental robots in a lab is electrocuted, suddenly becomes intelligent, and escapes.
Major confusion occurred in India among fans when this movie was released. Many people who had seen the film thought that Fisher Stevens (who played the part of an Indian) was actually Bollywood actor Javed Jaffrey. This was due to Javed being the spitting image of Fisher Stevens, with his beard and round eye glasses. Javed had just had his first release, Meri Jung (1985). In the film, he sported round eye glasses and a beard. When this movie released in India, many thought Javed had acted in a Hollywood movie. It was only after Javed confirmed in interviews that another actor starred in this movie, that people finally knew the truth.
Enemy neutralized. Ladies and gentlemen, objective completed.
When Number 5 is first hit by the little trash robot the number on the side of the trash can is 3765. In subsequent shots it is 3250.
The credits are played out over a montage of scenes from the movie, including a pair of scenes that failed to make the final cut. One involves an encounter between Number 5 and a toy robot, the other involves a scene in a scrap yard where a scrapped car that Number 5 is currently sitting in is crushed.
