* BlackAndGrayMorality: This film is your classic story of a cop who shoots first and asks questions later, and an undercover cop who kills people for the mob in order to maintain his cover, up against a ruthless gun smuggler and his gang.

* BadassAdorable: when he's not shooting criminals in varying degrees of cold blood Tequilla is frankly a bit of a dork. His attempts to woo Teresa have a distinct "schoolboy and a princess" vibe to them.

* WaxingLyrical: Tony sends coded messages to the police by sending flowers to Teresa (Teresa Mo), a police secretary and Tequila's on-again, off-again girlfriend, with the message on the card. Before it's decoded, the message on the first card reads, "Are you somewhere feeling lonely/Or is someone loving you?", which is a lyric from Lionel Richie's "Hello". They're all from well-known love songs.
