  • Trivia

    • Although it's 10 o'clock in the evening, when Lenore takes the cab, most of the shots are in daytime.

    • The full power laser has a reddish color when shown coming out of the laser gun, but the same blueish color as regular power is shown when the laser hits Black Beauty.

  • Quotes

    • Thornton: What are you doing here? What are you doing with us?
      Hornet: I've taken a sudden interested in art.
      Thornton: Eh. I didn't think you bothered to buy anything.
      Hornet: I'm not interested in buying.

  • Notes

    • When Steve packs the laser up after shooting his former compatriot through the window, we see that the laser can be powered through a simple household outlet.

    • When Ms. Case is in Brit's office and given the money to deliver, she is also handed a direction finder (a.k.a tracking device) disguised as a compact. Here and only here, do you see the secret compartment in her purse as she hides the compact.

    • First time you see the Hornet's Sting remove an item from an opponents hand. In this case, it is a gun.
