No eye or nose holes.  Just genitalia.

Do you realize what SM is?  He's a transmitter!  He's a radio for speaking to Fox!

Gave this another read alongside the script on which it is based. It's a lot more accurate than I realised/remembered. Virtually all of the dialogue is taken verbatim from the screenplay. In fact, other than a generally accelerated final act, the only real difference is with Halliday's death, which occurs significantly earlier and under different circumstances than in the script.

I still hate that the Space Commies fly USCM dropships, but I get the feeling that probably came from Fox rather than Christmas.

Maybe it came from Fox but there's still no excuse for the lazy designs, from boxy space stations to Space Commies(ΤΜ) using literal UZIs because that's the reference in the script.

Sticking to the script is a perfect excuse.

Been saying this all along! The adaptation is incredibly faithful to the script. And agreed on the dropships. But I'm not sure the Defiant-like design would have been incredibly better.

The script says Uzi-like, not Uzi's. This is a criticism I do agree with. It'd have been better if Johnie had gone a step further with that, making it look something more futuristic the way the Pulse Rifle is just a shell over  Thompson.
