Did you know?
Toward the beginning of the film, just before the gang arrives in Newton Haven, Gary King states that "There should have been Five Musketeers. That way, two could've died, and there'd still be three left." This foreshadows the deaths of O-Man and Peter.

Gary mentions the "knife game" from Aliens (1986), a scene in which it is revealed that Bishop (Lance Henriksen is a robot. In the previous film, Alien (1979), Ash (Ian Holm) is revealed to be a robot. In this film, Oliver (Martin Freeman) is revealed to be a robot. Holm and Freeman have both played Bilbo Baggins.

Look closely at the decor of each one of the pubs. The 'number' of the pub (according to the order it is visited in The Golden Mile) will appear prominently somewhere on a chalkboard or sign within it, or on the table that Gary and the group are sitting at.

In the early scenes with Gary recruiting his buddies, his Eye of Horus necklace frequently appears and disappears from shot to shot.

Andrew Knightley's law firm is called Beckingham, Davies and Knigthley LLB. In England, the suffix 'LLB' means 'Bachelor of Laws' and describes a person who has an undergraduate degree in Law. Law firms should bear the suffix 'LLP' ('Limited Liability Partnership').

When Gary crosses off the tenth pub on the map, the figure of the "modern art" statue can be seen on the map just below the second and third pubs. But since this is the same map he used for the original crawl, before The Network arrived, and since the statue is apparently part of The Network, it should not appear on the map. It is also apparent that the statue was not there at the time of the original Golden Mile since they wonder about what it is when they pass it earlier in the night.

Andrew Knightley: How can you tell if you're drunk if you're never sober?
