More Movie Taglines:
  • In a future where freedom is outlawed outlaws will become heroes.
  • Two men. One battle. No compromise.
  • The only thing more powerful than the system, is the man that will overthrow it.
Movie Quote(s):
  • Brandt: You clean, we'll sweep.
  • Brandt: I told you I'd make my career with you, Preston.
  • Brandt: Cleric, I can only hope one day to be as uncompromising as you.
  • DuPont: And you, Preston, the supposed savior of the resistance, are now its destroyer, and, along with them, you've given me yourself... calmly... coolly... entirely without incident. John Preston: [Polygraph machine scribbling rapidly] No. [Polygraph suddenly registers Preston completely in control] Polygraph Technician: Oh... Shit. John Preston: Not without incident.
  • DuPont: Be careful Preston. You're treading on my dreams.
Movie Trivia:
  • In certain scenes, the muzzle flash of the pistols and rifles fired by the Clerics and guards will reveal the Tetragrammaton insignia.
  • Grammaton Cleric wristwatch used in the film is an Android Alien watch with a black face, no maker name on the dial.
  • The poem that Partridge reads in the church is "He wishes for the Cloths of Heaven" by William Butler Yeats, published in the collection "The Wind Among the Reeds" (1899). "Had I the heavens' embroidered cloths, Enwrought with golden and silver light, The blue and the dim and the dark cloths Of night and light and the half-light, I would spread the cloths under your feet: But I, being poor, have only my dreams; I have spread my dreams under your feet; Tread softly because you tread on my dreams."
  • Two hundred people were interviewed for the role of Partridge and filming had already started when Lucas Foster brought Sean Bean in, having convinced him to take the role.
  • The pistol-whip fight between John Preston and the officers took only 30 minutes to film.
