* EnemyMine: The Mafia teams up with a Witness Protection Agent (who also faked the death of one of their former members) and the Mafia defector in question, in order to take down the villainous Russian terrorist organization - because the terrorists are using their docks to ship [=WMDs=] without their permission.

Somewhat plausible as the Mafia guys in question are the defector's cousins rather than the guys he actually ratted on.

* AssholeVictim: What little we see of Cullen's ex-boyfriend Daryl paints him as [[StalkerWithACrush a stalker that can't take "no, our relationship is over" as an answer]] (he broke into her home and Cullen mentions that he has been calling and leaving messages pinned to her windshield). He gets BlownAcrossTheRoom as the first railgun-induced casualty of the film.

** The Cyrez infirmary doctor treating Casteleone tries to defib her patient ''while he's actively conscious, talking, and fighting her attempts to shock him''. This poor medical practice makes her and her staff less sympathetic when Kruger ends up taking them hostage later.

Added DiffLines:

* ArtisticLicenseEconomics: The bad guys repeatedly mention that they had to resort to selling to terrorists because the U.S. Government isn't willing to give them enough funding. The sale price of the railguns is later mentioned as 52 million dollars, which even back in the 1990's would have been a drop in the bucket in terms of government spending (The government spends almost as much on NPR each year).

* BulletproofHumanShield: Kruger protects him from a group of armed mooks with one of the armed mooks himself. It's slightly more plausible in this scenario, as the guy is wearing a bulletproof vest.

* NeckSnap: Arnie snaps quite a few necks in this movie, including one where, instead of twisting the mook's head, he instead traps his head in a with a fridge door and ''twists the torso'' instead.

* LockAndLoadMontage: A brief one when Kruger gears up for a federal raid. Serves as a ChekhovsGun in that it shows the audience the belt knife Kruger uses to escape TheMole later on.
