A police officer is brought out of suspended animation in prison to pursue an old ultra-violent nemesis who is loose in a non-violent future society.
Wesley Snipes' kicks and punches sometimes look lurchy and awkward. Snipes is an accomplished black belt in real-life, and his kicks and punches were so fast that they blurred on-camera. Hence the producers asked him to slow them down.
Zachary Lamb - Young:
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.
Even though the audio dubbing and logos for Taco Bell were changed to Pizza Hut in post-production in some versions of the movie, the editors missed some. The original logo for Taco Bell can still be seen on the windows of the restaurant when Lenina and John go out to dinner. The sign outside clearly says Pizza Hut, while the windows show the Taco Bell logo.
The TBS broadcast eliminates all references to Taco Bell, rendering several lines of dialog incomprehensible. Early in the movie, Sandra Bullock's character uses the word "asshole," but the TBS version replaces this with the word "eyesore." (She still gets fined for swearing, however!).
