Movie Quote(s):
  • Aki: This mission was well worth the lives of you and your men. Jane Proudfoot: "Men"? Ryan: She thinks you're a man. Jane Proudfoot: I think she's an idiot. Neil: I know you're not a man. Jane Proudfoot: I think YOU'RE an idiot too.
  • Ryan: PLEASE tell me we're risking our lives for that little plant. Jane Proudfoot: I wouldn't even call it a plant; I'd call it a weed. Neil: I wouldn't even call it a weed.
  • General Hein: Report any aberrant behavior in Dr. Ross to the Major immediately. Grey: "Aberrant behavior," sir? General Hein: The woman carries an alien infection. It may be clouding her judgment. They may be manipulating her for their very own purposes. Grey: Is the General suggesting Dr. Ross is a spy? General Hein: The General is wondering why he's explaining himself to a Captain.
  • Neil: Speak to me, Sarge. Ryan: Ouch.
  • [Grey's last words to Aki Ross] Grey: I love you.
Movie Trivia:
  • The total production time on the film was over four years. By the time the final shots were rendered, some of the earlier ones had to be redone because they didn't match anymore. Also, the software used to create them had become more advanced (and hence more detail was possible).
  • Dr. Aki Ross' hair is only half as dense as the average human crop, however, that still left 60,000 strands to put realistically into motion. When designing the computer graphics, a fifth of the time spent was devoted to those 60,000 hairs.
  • After shooting and initial animation wrapped, completed scenes were fed to Square Pictures' custom and (more or less) homemade "render farm" computer network (which consisted of 960 individual Pentium III-933MHz workstations) and processed into single frames. During this rendering process, the raw animation had the textures and extremely fine detail added by the network cluster. Each frame has twice the resolution of a high-definition TV signal and contains 10 megabytes of data.
  • The name of the character Dr. Sid is a reference to the Final Fantasy game series. Most incarnations of the game include a character in some fashion named Cid and in each game but Final Fantasy VII, Cid is an older, wiser character. (Also in nearly all cases, a Scientist of some sort)
  • Chocobos (a bird creature found in many Squaresoft games including Final Fantasy) can be seen in two different spots. Once on a man's briefcase and another time on Aki's pyjamas.
