  • Movie Goof (continuity error): During the training, when Layla is assembling her Steyr Aug assault rifle, the ammo magazine disappears and appears again while she talks to Clayton.

  • While playing cards with the other recruits, Colin Farrell's character, Clayton, refers to his opponent, a former Miami cop, as "Sonny Crockett". Several years later Farrell would portray Sonny Crockett in Miami Vice.
