A man trapped in an automated prison must outsmart a computer in order to escape.
All of the effects in the prison cell were done practically. Howard's movements were done off camera by the director and producer. The sliding door, the moving treadmill and security robot were moved in and out of frame by key grip Ian Lancaster. The security robot was a remote control army tank but when filming started the motor failed which resulted in merely having to push it through the frame. During most takes, Ian hid under a black sheet while pushing the robot across the floor with a broom handle.

Frank: Some kind of neutralizer.
Howard: Oh, gotcha. I thought you meant, ...
When Frank first decides to "sit this one out" at the coffee shop, a reflection of someone walking in the background is visible on one of the photographs behind him, even though the only people in the coffee shop are Frank, the waitress, and the sitting patron with the brown jacket. Nonetheless, this may possibly be a reflection of someone walking outside the store as the next scene shows a reflection that looks more like a car driving past.
