* TheSociopath: The terrorists, especially Qualen, Travers, Delmar and Kynette, of whom the latter three are AxCrazy {{Jerkass}} textbook examples. Kristel, Heldon, Ryan and the rest of the gang probably also qualify, but they have less screentime to show it.

* HateSink: The terrorists' UpToEleven-wise unlikable [[MoralEventHorizon actions]] and [[{{Jerkass}} attitudes]] tends fall into this to a point of overplaying this trope (it could even be said that they ''overkilled'' this Trope--most of the ReCut footage was done to make them less ''vomit-inducingly monstrous''). They are obviously designated to be more loathsome then Tucker, who, despite blaming Walker for getting his girlfriend killed, is more of a JerkassWoobie due to his anger towards Walker being mostly out of grief of losing his girlfriend and the fact he is been made into a ButtMonkey for the terrorists to bully also makes Tucker sympathetic. Also, outside of their villainy, they are also all completely obnoxious in general. When they first take Tucker and Walker hostage, Kynette forbids Tucker and Walker to talk to each other ("Anytime you wanted to say something, don't."), refuses to let Walker have his climbing equipment to get to their first case, and takes Walker's jacket away--leaving him vulnerable to the cold--before Qualen finally orders his death. Also, [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking on top of everything else]], Qualan's [[WhatTheHellIsThatAccent annoying sounding]] FakeBrit accent, especially towards English audiences and compared to authentic British actors Craig Fairbrass and Caroline Goodall who plays the henchmen Delmar and Kristel.

* BreakOutTheMuseumPiece

to:

* BreakOutTheMuseumPiece BreakOutTheMuseumPiece: Gabe loses some of his climbing equipment when he manages to run away from the thieves (and his jacket was taken away by them when they forced him to fatch the first money case), so he's forced to take replacements from the exhibit display inside of a rest cabin. At one point he even quips about how unsafe it must be to pull off a stunt with the sixty-year-old rope that he snagged from the cabin.



* CrooksAreBetterArmed: Although taking on a bunch of Treasury security men is probably no walk in the park even with TheMole getting the drop on them, Qualen's crew go above and beyond the call of duty by bringing an absurd amount of explosives, multiple automatic weapons and even a grenade launcher (that they lose early on), all of which end up pitted against a lone man armed with climbing equipment.



* {{Decoy|Protagonist}} {{Deuteragonist}}: [[spoiler: Kind-hearted CoolOldGuy Frank, who spends a good bulk of the movie trying to find Walker, Tucker and Jessie. When finally facing the villains and finding Tucker, instead of simply being taken hostage, he gets mowed down by Delmar and is quickly forgotten, while Qualen steals his helicopter.]]

18 months later, Gabe came back to pick up his things from Jessie, just in time to be the only climber qualified enough to reach a band of plane crash survivors trapped in the mountains by a snowstorm. Partnering himself with Tucker, who still hated him, the duo reached the plane...

* ProductPlacement: An example that backfired epically: the carabiner that fails on the opening sequence was one designed by [[http://blackdiamondequipment.com/ Black Diamond Equipment]], and the camera lingers a long time on the brand as the failure occurs and Sarah dangles helplessly over a cliff. The company was so irate about the potential public fear to purchase from the brand in light of such an epic (staged) FailsafeFailure that they sued Carolco ''and won'', and a disclaimer was added to the movie's credits which says that the equipment on that sequence was especially modified so it would fail.
