* MoralMyopia: Stavros, big time. With a dose of [[{{Hypocrite}} hypocrisy]]. He rightfully mourns [[spoiler:his son after he's shot]]. But he sees nothing wrong with shooting the staff of a hospital, who weren't responsible for his death, and putting grenades in baby baskets ''with the baby still in it''.

** Pretty much any of the explosion scenes would have done far worse damage than they do in the movie, not just from the explosions but from the blasts of air and subsequent shrapnel. [[spoiler: The ending, where Yaz outruns the Colloseum fireball, takes this to even more ludicrous levels, when he defends himself and the baby from the explosion ''via a Coca-Cola vendor''--a scene that would give the tunnel fire scene from Film/IndependenceDay a run for it's money.]]

* ArtisticLicenseGeography: The movie shows Antwerp as a place full with towering flashy discotheques, tattoo shops and a red light district where crowds of people roam the streets. It looks more like Bangkok than actual Antwerp.
