* WouldHitAGirl: Bain has no compunctions whatsoever about killing women; not only does he kill a female police officer, Interpol agent and a hotel maid in the course of his attempt to get to Electra, he threatens Electra with cutting her heart out after he fails to intercept the data she's sending, and only a little bit later kills another innocent woman who's walked into the middle of the gun battle between himself and Rath in Electra's apartment building.

* RightForTheWrongReasons: Bain figures out where Electra is by checking which car was used recently enough for the hood to be warm. He gets it right, but she arrived on foot and it's a complete coincidence.

The main scriptwriters, [[Creator/TheWachowskis Lana and Andy (Now Lilly) Wachowski]], ended up protesting several changes in their script, which they felt made the final product too different from what they had conceived. This did not prevent them from selling to the same producer, Joel Silver, a second script they had completed alongside Assassins. ''Film/TheMatrix'' would not be ready for release until 1999.

* MysteriousEmployer: Robert Rath is a hitman who never meets his employer face to face, communicating only by text through a secured connection. Apparently it's the same deal with all his employees. His identity turns out to be [[spoiler:Nikolai, Rath's old mentor whose "death" still haunts him.]]

* ViewerFriendlyInterface: Rath uses a computer to talk to his contract provider. The chat program he uses has a whopping ''two'' lines of text, probably to accommodate the enormous fonts. It's also [[BeepingComputer incredibly noisy]], with constant prompts for inputs.
