* ArtisticLicenseGeography: They don't have ice cream trucks in the Philippines, just ice cream barrows. The mere presence of the truck should have aroused suspicions rather than excitement. Also applies as CouldHaveAvoidedThisPlot.

** There's only a few scenes where the LaserSight is used: the first is during a nighttime op where everyone is wearing night vision goggles, which allows the SEAL team to track where the rest of their teammates are aiming by following their laser beams. The second is in a close-quarters assault on the factory at the climax, where the SEAL team and the Mexican SOF are fighting through smoke-filled rooms where they have to quickly acquire targets without using their holographic sights.

* {{Retirony}}: While no one is on the verge of retirement, any GenreSavvy viewer can figure out that the [[spoiler: person that keeps talking about taking time off to be with his wife while their baby is born]] is going to end up doing a HeroicSacrifice before the end of the movie.

* YanksWithTanks: The film actually portrays several branches of the US military in addition to the Navy [=SEALs=]; Army Chinooks in Costa Rica, a US Navy missile submarine in the Indian Ocean, and [[SemperFi Marine Corps]] Harriers & helicopters onboard the ''USS Bonhomme Richard''.

* CastTheExpert: Taken UpToEleven. The SEAL platoon is played by real life [=SEALs=].
** Although they were planning to use real [=SEALs=] anyway, they had to because, supposedly, no stunt man was physically capable of pulling off what they needed.



* DoingItForTheArt: The fire being put down by the SWCC boats? More often than not it's live ammo.
** That truck getting blown up by an RPG? No special effects whatsoever, that was a real truck getting hit with a real RPG.

* IHaveYourWife: Miller shows Christo a recording of the latter's daughter during his interrogation, with this implied. Then immediately subverted; he is not threatening Christo's daughter, he's just showing him his daughter to remind him of what he will lose if he doesn't cooperate and gets sent to prison for the rest of his life. When Christo asks if Miller will leave his family alone, he emphatically replies that he would ''never'' harm Christo's family. It's a brilliant piece of subtext without a direct threat, because you ''know'' Christo was wondering how in the hell this guy got footage of his daughter.
