* SocietyMarchesOn: The film, in 1981, predicted that by 1997 crime rates would have risen to such catastrophic levels that the entire Manhattan Island would be turned into a penal colony for containing all the convicts. While the high crime rates of the 1970s-80s make it look more plausible then, the fact they started falling just ten years on left it looking silly when the actual 1997 rolled around.

* DwindlingParty: When escaping along the 69th Street Bridge, each of Snake's party dies one by one; Cabbie is killed when the [[StuffBlowingUp cab drives over a mine]], Brain steps on another mine and Maggie [[CarFu gets run over by the Duke]] while attempting a LastStand with Snake's revolver. Only Snake and the President manage to make it out alive.

The supporting cast includes a lineup of memorable character actors, including the aforementioned Van Cleef, Creator/DonaldPleasence, Creator/HarryDeanStanton, Creator/ErnestBorgnine, Adrienne Barbeau, and Adrienne Barbeau's cleavage (which frankly deserves its own credit).
