PG-13 | | Action, Adventure, Thriller
An extreme sports athlete, Xander Cage, is recruited by the government on a special mission.
Stunt player Harry O'Connor was killed when he hit a pillar of the Palacky Bridge in Prague, para-sailing during one of the actions scenes. The accident occured while filming the second take of the stunt; O'Connor's first attempt was completed without incident and can be seen in the completed film.
He stole the chip, he's inside.
Yorgi: I see him.
Yorgi: Kirill! Time to work.
When the scientists present Yorgi with the detonator, the rocket contains a yellow liquid at the top, and a blue liquid at the bottom. When the liquids first begin to mix, there is a shot of the rocket where the blue liquid is at the top, which goes back to being yellow in the next shot. We can tell it is the top of the rocket because of the shape of the exterior frame.
This film is dedicated to the Memory of Harry L. O'Connor, Aerial Stunt Coordinator and Beloved Friend.
Up until 2017, all UK versions of the film were cut by one second to remove a head-butt to secure a 12A/12 rating. The BBFC waived the cut to the theatrical version on January 5th 2017 for its 15th anniversary Blu-ray release. The director's cut had the cut waived when submitted in 2005, but the release itself is still (pointlessly) censored, even throughout Europe as the same master was used. Although it carries an overall 15 rating, this is only due to bonus features - the film itself is a 12 as per the theatrical version.
