How'd they do that shot, when one of the radio guys was trying to fix the radio, the green characters were being projected (?) onto his face.

What did they use to do that? Anyone know?

God, I hate that effect.

Computer monitors don't do that!

LCD video projector. The movie was shot at fairly low light levels so they were able to get a nice exposure.

People don't have grad filters cutting them in half all the time either, but Tony Scott does that a lot as well. In many ways this was one of his more restrained movies visually.
