* BecauseYouWereNiceToMe: Fargo has a clear shot at Al after a botched murder attempt but deliberately lets him escape; he then later helps Al after the latter barely survives a YouHaveFailedMe fate. These actions lead to Al's MookFaceTurn.

* HeelFaceTurn: Al.TheGuardsMustBeCrazy: Apparently the guards/mooks at the main supervilla lair are aware of Al's identity as one of their own but not that he has been [[YouHaveFailedMe ousted for failing]] and has [[HeelFaceTurn switched sides]], as shown when they allow him into the compound. The 'crazy' part comes into play when Al chauffeurs Fargo (a.k.a. a '''complete stranger''') into the villa with him, past several groups of armed thugs, and not a single one of them raises an eyebrow.



* IdiotBall: Fargo has a perfect shot at the escaping Al at one point in the film. [[AlternativeCharacterInterpretation For some reason,]] [[FoeYay he doesn't take it.]] Played straight at the end with the bad guys though; [[MoreDakka bless 'em for trying.]]

* PunchClockVillain: Poor Al really seems hate being on the low-rung of his organization's hierarchy and seems really keen on taking up Fargo's offer to get him out of it. [[spoiler: Poor, poor Al.]]

* LeaveTheCameraRunning: First when the scientists are meeting in the beginning. After they are cleared through the checkpoint, the film spends over ten seconds just looking at the feed of a security camera with ''nothing of interest happening at all''. Later, the camera tracks all the members of the conference just walking through a hallway and taking an elevator downstairs. No music, no dialogue, nothing important happening.
