Trivia

When the soldiers are gathering in Chernobyl to begin their cleanup efforts, they are all given vodka for free. Alcohol does have the ability to scavenge free-radicals in the body (free radicals are by-products of radiation). However, the amount the alcohol actually helps is minute, and would not help if you were exposed to anything approaching a dangerous level of radiation. See more »

Goofs

When the three soldiers are leaving the table where they ate and drank, some bottles and scraps can be seen in the background. In the next shot, however, the table is completely clean. See more »
