Trivia

In the hotel scene where Nick and Kira hook up, the script called for Nick (Chris Evans) to touch Kira's (Camilla Belle) butt while they kissed. On set, Chris Evans refused to touch Belle without her permission. Belle ended up giving Evans permission and the scene was filmed as scripted. See more »

Goofs

About one hour into the film, Nick Gant (Chris Evans) goes to speak with Henry Carver (Djimon Hounsou) in a restaurant. Using his telekinetic power, Nick elevates two pistols up to ceiling height - but despite the mirror-finish of much of the ceiling trim, their is no reflection for the weapons, only that of Nick, walking beneath them.

Quotes

[first lines]
Young Nick: Dad, what's happening?
Nick's Father: I need you to listen to me, like we're the last two people on the planet, okay Nick? Someday, a girl is going to give you a flower. You got that? A flower. And you have to help her, Nick. You help her, and you help us all. Okay? I know it doesn't make any sense right now, but I believe the woman who told me that. Do you think you can believe me?
[Nick nods]
Nick's Father: I love you. Know how I've said that you were special Nick? Turns out that I was right.

Ignore the critics, good film
4 May 2009 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

I was really surprised by how entertained I was by this. There were many negative reviews of this film and after watching the film I realised how many critics are actually quite lazy. They derided the plot as convoluted but actually I found it complex but understandable. To dismiss it as a heroes knock-off is also unfair. It's a sci-fi film but that doesn't mean all sci-fi films are the same. The film makes good use of its Hong Kong location more so than any recent film I've seen and the characters were memorable. The special effects were there for the story and not the other way around. I usually read film reviews but am glad, in this instance, I ignored them.
