    Goofs: We know about 10 goofs. Here comes one of them:
    Anachronisms: When SSgt. Nantz secures a rock to the radio at the gas station to lure the enemy drone away from his group, he is seen throwing an M26 “Lemon” grenade. American forces use the M67 “Baseball” grenade. The M26 was removed from service in the 1970s.

    Trivia: There are 5 entries in the trivia list – like these:

    • Shane Black did uncredited work on the final script.
    • The film is inspired by the real life incident known as the Battle of Los Angeles, during World War II. On the night of 24-25 February 1942, unidentified aircraft were allegedly spotted in the airspace above Los Angeles. Suspecting it to be the Japanese, a blackout of the city was ordered and over 1,440 rounds of anti-aircraft ammunition was fired. Upon finding no evidence of the existence of any enemy aircraft, the incident was declared to be a "false alarm". The event has since been chalked up to as being a result of "war nerves", likely triggered by a lost weather balloon and exacerbated by stray flares and shell bursts from adjoining anti-aircraft batteries.
    • Very little of the film was actually shot in Los Angeles. Tax incentives brought the production to Louisiana where sets of Los Angeles streets were constructed.
