Remember when they used to let commercial airlines land in this town?
Helicopter Pilot: Yeah. Well, I don't understand where we're going, or why the hell we're bothering anyhow.
When the computer is responding to the first Code 187s, it is heard to say, "Last recorded offense: September 25, 2010," which in the movie would have been 22 years previously. However, when Spartan is first thawed, Garcia tells him that "There have been no deaths of unnatural causes in San Angeles in the last 16 years." His math is off. It is stated that the last recorded offense of "187" (which is the actual current California Penal Code section for murder), was 22 years previous. It was also stated, "There have been no deaths of unnatural causes in San Angeles in the last 16 years." Both can be simultaneously correct. Death by unnatural causes does not assume murder, and they are not the same. It is possible, and consistent with the story line, although excessively Utopian, there were no murders for 22 years, and there were no unnatural deaths for 16 years. There are countless possibilities of death, including homicide, that are not murder. For example, if a person choked on a cherry pit and died, it would be unnatural, but not (likely) murder. As well, industrial accidents resulting in death occur frequently, and are not murder. It's hard to believe that any society could continue for 16 years with no unnatural death, but improbability does not equal impossibility.
The scene where Simon kills the guards in the cryo prison was also trimmed but this time because it was too graphic. Orginally the audience could see the guards being killed by the bullets.
