*** Trejo is easily distinguishable because he runs across the street laying a spike trap for the cop cars while holding the distinctive-looking [=AK47=] copy Norinco assualt rifle, and also works the police scanner, audibly warning the rest of the crew.

* BatmanGambit: About halfway through, there is a scene where Neil, Shiherlis, Cheritto and Trejo meet up in an intermodal yard, apparently to paint it as their next target, as well as to map out the viable escape routes. The whole time, Hanna's team surveys their activities from hidden vantage points. When Hanna and his team later assemble on the same location to break down Neil's gameplan, they quickly discover the worthlessness of the target location, as well as the absence of any effective escape routes. Hanna then breaks out in smug laughter, realizing now that Neil had wanted his team to get in the open so that he could then get photos of them, and jokingly makes poses while Neil photographs him.

[[IThoughtItMeant Not to be confused with]] the Burt Reynolds movie of [[NamesTheSame the same name]].

* AllThereInTheScript: In the original draft, Hanna was explained to have been a habitual cocaine user, thus enabling him to keep his "edge" at all times. This is never mentioned in the film, but Pacino used it in his performance anyway, thus offering some justification for his at times rather hammy performance.

* FromCamouflageToCriminal: Neil [=McCauley=] is a retired marine who has since become the leader of a gang of armed robbers. It's also a parallel to Vincent Hanna, who is also ex-military.

* SteelEardrums: Averted in the armored car robbery scene. Waingro starts yelling at the guards, "Get back!" but when they don't move, he pistol whips the closest one in frustration (the guards were deafened from Shiherlis blowing open the back doors; and since Waingro was wearing a hockey mask they couldn't even tell he was talking at all). Cheritto turns to him and says, "Hey slick, see that shit comin' outta their ears? They can't fucking hear you! Cool it!" The robbers themselves don't have this problem because Shiherlis shouts "CLEAR!" before he mashes the detonator, giving them plenty of time to plug their ears.
