Movie Quote Quiz

Vitaly Orlov: Are you opening a gun shop?
Yuri Orlov: There are already more gun shops in America than McDonalds.

Yuri Orlov: Even when I was up against an overzealous agent, I had a number of methods for discouraging a search. I routinely mislabeled my armshipments "Farm machinery", and I have yet to meet the lowely paid customs official who'll open a container marked "Radioactive waste." But my personal favorite is the combination of week-old potatoes and tropical heat.

Yuri Orlov: I can eat in the restaurant for free and I don't eat there!

Yuri Orlov: Selling guns is like selling vacuum cleaners.

Yuri Orlov: I never sold to Osama Bin Laden. Not on any moral grounds, back then he was always bouncing checks.

Yuri Orlov: Out of all the weapons in the vast Soviet arsenal, nothing was more profitable the the Avtomat Kalashnikova model of 1947, more commonly known as the the AK-47, or Kalashnikov. It's the world's most popular assault rifle, a weapon all fighters love. An elegantly simple nine pound amalgamation of forged steel and plywood. It doesn't break, jam or overheat, it will shoot whether it's covered in mud or filled with sand. It's so easy, even a child can use it, and they do. The soviets put the gun on a coin, Mozambique put it on their flag. Since the end of the Cold War, the Kalashnikov has become the Russian peoples' greatest export. After that comes vodka, caviar and suicidal novelists. One thing was for sure: no one was lining up to buy their cars.

Continuity mistake: When Ava is in Yuri's trailer discovering all the guns and things, Nicolai is shown behind the blue things hanging from the ceiling. It cuts to a close up of Ava, then it cuts back to where you can see where Nicolai was standing, but he is gone. It cuts back to Ava and then back again, and he is there.

Trivia: While shooting the scenes on the Ukrainan military base, director Andrew Niccol had to inform NATO that he was shooting a movie, and that was what the line-up of tanks was for. Otherwise, NATO might have mistaken it as a mobilisation of a division.
