** For ''that'' matter, the whole premise of a small-town Texas Sheriff being sent to escort a criminal halfway around the world (instead of, say, the FBI or US Marshals) is too farfetched to take seriously. Let alone one with an extremely personal grudge against the convict he's escorting. The movie does eventually reveal that [[spoiler: Chief Wilson arranged it, as he's in cahoots with Palermo and Don Lammana and thinks Geronimo will botch the job]], which doesn't make it any more plausible.

* UnderestimatingBadassery: Palermo and Lamanna's fatal flaw: they keep acting like Geronimo is a harmless doofus when he's a dangerous CowboyCop who will stop at nothing to get revenge.

* CowboyCop: Literally! He pretty much just shoots suspects for the sake of it, and his backstory is that he got bumped to a piddly out of nowhere sherriff's office because of him shooting the brother of a Senator. Most of the movie is him chasing down Palermo and causing numerous fatalities in the process. Oh, and he's wearing a ''ridiculous'' cowboy suit for the entire movie. Even so, Geronimo has the nerve to be offended when a friendly cab driver jokes about him knowing JohnWayne.

** Par for the course for a ''DirtyHarry'' ripoff, but why in Sweet Jesus wasn't Geronimo ''deported immediately'', ''especially'' after he's threatening to ''seriously maim your citizens''? He'd be out of his jurisdiction in a different ''county'', much less ''a different country - across the Atlantic ocean''. The movie does show that the Maltese authorities are trying to get him off the island as quickly as possible (and the irregular flights out of Malta don't help), but he's largely allowed to roam free - to the point where his "jail cell" is a revolving door using the same stock footage of him being escorted out of the cell over and over again.
