- One push can change everything.
- Leurs pouvoirs font d'eux une espèce en danger (Their powers make them an endangered species)
- Cassie Holmes: [in tears] Tell me I'm a crappy artist and that everything is going to be fine. Nick Gant: You *are* a crappy artist. Everything is going to be fine, I promise.
Cassie Holmes: There are special people in this world. We don't ask to be special. We're just born this way. We pass you on the streets every day, unnoticed by most. It started in 1945. The Nazis were conducting experiments in psychic warfare, trying to turn those with psychic abilities into soldiers. Lots of us died. The war ended, but the experiments never stopped. Other governments around the world set up what they called "divisions", trying to do what the Nazis couldn't, to turn us into weapons. The divisions agents are trained to track and hunt us down like animals. Take us away from our families and friends. They test us and categorize us. I'm what they call a Watcher. We can see the future, even if that's not always as simple as it sounds. Others are called Movers; just an easy way of saying telekinetic. Pushers put thoughts in your head, and make whatever lie they come up with the truth. Sniffs, Shifters, Shadows, Bleeders... it goes on and on. In divisions' eyes, we're all just lab rats. Only one problem - we keep dying. No one has ever survived the drug meant to boost our powers. My name is Cassie Holmes. Division took my mom from me. Right now, the future I see doesn't look so great. The good news is, the future is always changing, in the largest of ways, by the smallest of things. They've been winning a lot of battles. Now it's our turn to win the war.
Nick Gant: How long do you think your mom's been planning this? Cassie Holmes: [smiles wanly] Probably since before I was born.
Pinky Stein: [to Nick] Sorry, I didn't know the procedure for stopping a blitzed ten year old. Cassie Holmes: I'm thirteen!
Cassie Holmes: [scared] Please don't make me do anything to myself.
- Channing Tatum was attached in the beginning, but in the end the role went to Chris Evans.
Shipped to theaters under the code name "Kinetic".
Lead actor Chris Evans came to director Paul McGuigan's attention through his performance in Danny Boyle's Sunshine (2007), another science-fiction film.
The choice to shoot the film in Hong Kong was inspired by the classic film Casablanca (1942). Indeed, director Paul McGuigan explains that in the thirties and forties, Casablanca was a den for scoundrels and the perfect place to hide as everyone could go there. To the makers of the film, Hong Kong was the 2000's equivalent to Casablanca.
Director Paul McGuigan tried to limit the use of digital effects as much as possible, recalling the great directors who didn't have such means available to them yet made up for them with their imagination. In fact the only scenes in which green screens were used were the car chases, as Hong Kong traffic is very heavy.
