* BlackDudeDiesFirst: There are actually two black dudes; one a heroic leader figure played by Creator/SamuelLJackson and the other a secondary character separated from the main group with his own B-plot played by rapper LL Cool James. Guess which dies first? [[spoiler:Subverted. Preacher even survives, thanks to the below-mentioned FocusGroupEnding, and Jackson's character dies right in the middle of his RousingSpeech.]]

** The shark that is fed to the makos is established as a tiger shark, while the coloring is right it has a pointed snout like a great white, tiger sharks have flat, round snouts.

Carter.
* HeroicSacrifice: While a true Heroic Sacrifice does not occur, it is worth pointing out that once Preacher's shot with the spear-gun tethers Carter to the Shark, Carter yells for Preach to detonate the improvised explosive and kill the shark. Carter obviously considered his own death which would result, an acceptable price to keep the Gen-II shark from escaping to menace the oceans (and for that matter procreate new generations of super-intelligent sharks). Fitting, considering that Carter was the only one who realized how dangerous the sharks really were before everything began to fall apart. (Fortunately, he manages to free himself before the explosive is detonated.) Also worth nothing that the only reason he was even in that situation was due to the culmination of events that resulted after he dove into the water trying to save Susan from the shark.

HotScientist: Susan.

** Russell Franklin's best plan to escape the lowest level of the facility was to try to out-swim two freaking ''sharks'' to the surface. Fortunately, one of the other survivors tears this plan to pieces by comparing the swimming speeds of average humans and average sharks (the sharks unsurprisingly being several orders of magnitude faster), and provides a less-suicidal method of escape.

* TheEndOrIsIt: [[spoiler:Played with. At the end Preacher asks Carter if he was sure that there were only three sharks, and Carter says yes. [[GenreSavvy Then he takes his feet out of the water just to be sure]].]]

* ScienceIsBad: Par for the course with late-90s horror/sci-fi movies. Don't even ''try'' to cure Alzheimer's Disease, that way lies the path to giant evil sharks!
