* CoolCar: Bentley Continental GT SpeedSpeed. Even more cool because the stunt that it pulls at the end of its chase sequence (which is ramming right through a bus) was done for real ''and the car didn't even had a scratch afterwards''.

* ScavengerWorld: [[PlayingWithATrope Played with]]. The walled-off Scotland looks like something from a ''Mad Max'' sequel with no or few gunpowder weapons in use, very limited electricity and ''really'' ramshackle cars kitbashed together from old wrecks; the rest of Britain still bears a passing resemblance to what it's like today but seems to be turning slowly into this, as we see its authorities treat ''tanks'' as LostTechnology.

* RealityEnsues: Various fight scenes run on this. The cannibals that the team initially run into would in other movies overwhelm them easily. Here they're cut down in droves, and only their sheer numbers and the possibility of being surrounded causes the group to retreat. Sinclair's fights against Viper and the big knight in Kane's castle are also this, mainly because they're a cannibal and a medieval-style knight that have never been in a fight against a trained soldier in their lives and are beaten fairly easily by her.

** Though it's considerably more realistically used than the norm: Mitra's character is a FragileSpeedster who dodges the attacks of bigger opponents, and uses weapons to even the score.

* WaifFu: While Rhona Mitra is not exactly a waif, she pummels her way through a lot of much larger opponents throughout the film, including a seven-foot killer in full plate armour.
