Bill Nelson: [to Eden about going back to the city] You're going there? If there is such a thing as hell on earth, that's it. Kane: They started this fire. They can burn in it! Kane: Abandon any such hope. Eden Sinclair: No. Sol: [to his followers] This is our city! Kane: In the land of the infected, the immune man is king. Cellar Guard: [to Sinclair] If you're hungry, have a piece of your friend. [first lines] Kane: Like so many epidemics before, the loss of so many lives began with a single microscopic organism. It's human nature to seek even the smallest comfort in reason, or logic for events as catastrophic as these. But a virus doesn't choose a time or place. It doesn't hate or even care. It just happens. Bill Nelson: [as Sinclair puts her fake eye in her socket] I'll never get used to that. Bill Nelson: [to Sinclair] You carry on the way you're going, you're going to wind up one seriously fucked up individual. Michael Canaris: It's the Reaper virus. John Hatcher: Oh dear god. Michael Canaris: It's back. John Hatcher: Yesterday if I turned up on the six o'clock news with a survivor in tow, they would've strung me up from the nearest lightpost by the balls. But in 48 hours, I arrive with a survivor and cure... sure, they won't give a flying fuck about the survivor, but they'll be lining up to kiss my ass for that cure. Bill Nelson: Once you're over that wall, there's no rules, no back-up. Eden Sinclair: Better that way. Michael Canaris: Leave the dying to die. Viper: [upon seeing Sinclair] This one's for Sol. Sol: [after hitting Sinclair] I'm so sorry. I got a bit carried away. Sol: [to Sinclair] I could eat you right up! Sol: The hounds are hungry! It's feeding time at the fucking zoo! Sol: The wind of change is blowing a hurricane! Give 'em hell! Sol: [yelling to mob] This is our city! Whoever they send here, we're gonna catch them, we're gonna cook them, and we're gonna eat them! Eden Sinclair: You know where Kane is? Cally: I should. He's my father. Eden Sinclair: What were you doing in the city? Cally: I went to find my brother... Sol. Eden Sinclair: That maniac is your brother? Norton: That is one fucked up family, man. Dr. Ben Stirling: Jesus. What've they got in here, the lost ark? Eden Sinclair: [upon seeing someone wearing knight's armor riding up to them] You don't see that every day. Kane: I knew they'd be watching the cities. That's why we chose this place. Out of sight, out of mind. I suppose it was only a matter of time before they sent someone to ask the question "why are you alive, when you should be dead?" Kane: These walls around you; they were built to last, and so shall we. What we've built here, from the ashes, is pure blood. Uninfected by the outside world... until now. Dr. Ben Stirling: Have you found the cure? Kane: Ah, even now you still cling to hope, huh? If I were you, I'd abandon any such thought. Dr. Ben Stirling: There's always hope. Kane: But there is no cure. There never was. We had prevailed here, not because of science but through natural selection. Survival of the fittest. We have earned the right to live here. Kane: So, tell me, what's it like out there now? Eden Sinclair: What do you care? Kane: I'm curious. Eden Sinclair: Same shit, different era. Michael Canaris: Rough ride? Eden Sinclair: Rough enough. [last lines] Eden Sinclair: [throwing Sal's head on the ground] If you're hungry, have a piece of your friend. DJ: Ladies and gentlemen, here he is, the head chef, the big cheese. The sunshine of your lives, it's Sooooooool! Eden Sinclair: I'll tell you what I lost. I lost my mind. Sol: We have a rare treat in store for you tonight! [crowd cheers] Sol: Medium... fucking... rare! [crowd cheers even louder]

- Despite having many dangerous choreographed stunts, only two went wrong. A motorcycle rider was dragged when he meant to roll safely aside. He was not injured. Another was the man whom Sol punches in the face on the train platform; on a second take of the scene, the stuntman's nose was broken.

- Two DDS soldiers sent into Scotland are named "Miller" and "Carpenter". 'George Miller (II)' (qv) directed the "Mad Max" trilogy and 'John Carpenter (I)' (qv) directed _Escape from New York (1981)_ (qv) and _Escape from L.A. (1996)_ (qv), all heavily influential to this film.

- Scottish Screen contributed 300,000 pounds towards the film's budget.

- 'Alexander Siddig' (qv), playing the British PM, is the real-life nephew of 'Malcolm McDowell' (qv), playing a leading figure among the Scots in this picture.

- The junction scene uses about 700 extras, most of them Afrikaans.

- Though the film takes place in London and Scotland, most of principal photography was done in South Africa. The last scene shot on the continent before moving to the UK was the lengthy car chase with the Bentley crashing through the bus.

- The APC vehicles were manufactured with real steel plating and armor
