* ShellShockSilence: Whenever someone is being shot at and missed, the machine gun is very loud. When they are going to die, the shooting makes no sound at all.

* {{Badass}}: Matheson, Walker and even Tucker.
** For the villains, Kynette (who's an expert at martial arts and acts intimidatingly fierce as a ScaryBlackMan and cool at the same time) and Delmar (who uniquely uses his soccer talents to torture his hostage and taunts the said hostage with sports-related wisecracks), the LoveToHate performances by their actors Leon Robinson and Craig "[[VideoGame/ModernWarfare Ghost]]" Fairbrass certainly helps.

* ReCut: The workprint contains scenes that were cut to obtain an R-rating:
** On the plane shootout an agent is shot twice in the chest, in the NC-17 work print it shows a second or so more of him feeling the impacts in slow-motion.
** Another agent is shot in the head, blood and brain matter splats on the wall behind him but in the R rated version you only briefly see the aftermath of him falling back.
** When the co-pilot is shot in the NC-17 work print you see a different angle of blood and brains splattering on the window with him slumping back in the chair in slow-motion in the R rated version the scene is considerably shorter and just shows the pistol put to his head and fired.
** When the co-pilot is shot in the R rated version you see him wriggling about and then falling backwards out of the plane with some bloody wounds on his back, in the work print you can clearly see multiple bloody bullet holes appearing in slow-motion as he is being shot by the agent.
** When Brett is shot in the R rated version you see two bloody bullet hits on his back before he falls to the ground. In the work print he takes two bloody bullet hits in the back and then there is another shot of 3 more coming out of his chest and as he falls to the ground you can see another shot of him from behind taking another 3 hits before hitting the ground.
** In the R rated version Evan is fired upon and doesn't appear to be hit until Frank finds him later. In the work print Kynette forces Travers shoot at Evan you then see Evan take a bullet through the shoulder in slow-motion which explains why he appears to have been shot when Frank finds him later on.
** The fight between Gabe and Kynette has been shortened for the R rated version which misses shots of Gabe and Jessie being beaten further after Kynette asks for the *third* time where the money is (this is missing in the R rated version which leads to a continuity error as he said he would ask three times)The impaling of Kynette has been shortened, in the work print there is more focus on Kynette's eyes going back into his head and Gabe gritting his teeth holding Kynette up on the stalagmite as he is dying before finally dropping him.
** When Hal and Delmar fight the R rated version has removed a shot of Delmar kicking Hal hard in the kidneys and saying "Tell me how are we feeling so far?" as opposed to the R rated version "Tell me do you like soccer" they have been edited together and this now explains why Delmar appears out of breath when he asks the soccer question.
** When Hal shoots Delmar with the shotgun in the work print you see Craig Fairbrass get shot with a large splatter of blood behind him and a bloody shotgun wound to his chest as he dives off the mountain. The R rated version shows a different angle with a stuntman falling off the mountain. Additionally the work print shows Delmar's body slamming into the rocks below where as the R rated version cuts away just before.
** When Qualen shoots Kristel in the work print all three bloody bullet impacts are shown, in the R rated version it cuts away after the first shot to show Traver's reaction.
** The Gabe and Travers fight has been edited (this might not be censorship, apparently the filmmakers decided it would be better to have Gabe shoot Traver's with his piton gun before falling under the ice as per the R rated version) in the work print Gabe shoots Traver's once with the piton gun and Traver's gets up and tries to shoot Gabe through the ice and is then shot by Hal three times with a shotgun before falling under the ice (this explains why Hal appears with a shotgun in the R rated version).
** The ending fight with Gabe and Qualen has been shortened so kidney punches, an arm break and a longer shot of a terrified Qualen crashing to his death in the helicopter were taken out.

Gabe Walker (Creator/SylvesterStallone) was just your friendly everyday mountain rescue worker, happily flying to the rescue in the Rockies with his helicopter-pilot girlfriend Jessie Deighan (Janine Turner, from ''Series/NorthernExposure''), until his best friend Hal Tucker (Creator/MichaelRooker) [[WhatAnIdiot took his completely untrained girlfriend]] to climb to the summit of a cliff. Of course, this led to her horrifying death hundreds of feet below when the rescue equipment failed to function properly.[[note]] The end credits are careful to point out that the design of her harness was specifically altered for the film.[[/note]] In spite of Gabe's valiant efforts, Tucker [[JerkassWoobie blamed him for the tragedy]]. Gabe, being the good-hearted musclehead that he is, [[ItsAllMyFault took the blame to heart]] and left the mountains in guilt and grief.

Added DiffLines:

* 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.
