Added DiffLines:

* DidIMentionItsChristmas: Christmas in Houston, Texas... prevented from being a full-blown example of AnAssKickingChristmas because the characters almost don't talk about it (except for a couple of sarcastic lines) and aside from the occasional background decoration it could have been set at any time of the year.

* TheAggressiveDrugDealer: A SpaceWhaleAesop version of this in the BigBad: an alien drug dealer that gains [[AlienCatnip his alien drugs]] by ''forcing a heroin OD on his victims and draining their cerebral fluid while they are dying'', and plans an AlienInvasion that will turn Earth into a galactic drug lab.



* BadassInANiceSuit: Downplayed with the White Boys Gang, who dress in tailored suits and drive top-of-the-line roadsters and fire top-of-the-line sub-machine guns and make business from their downtown Dallas office building and thus try to present themselves as classy as a result, but in reality are just a bunch of heroin-peddling yuppie scumbags that boast big.



* OutsideContextProblem: The alien drug dealer arrives in the middle of a botched sting operation to kill the human gangsters. Later, he kills more of them [[VillainousRescue when they arrive to kill protagonist Jack Caine]].

Later, he kills more of them [[VillainousRescue when they arrive to kill protagonist Jack Caine]]. For a good part of the film the alien is in the periphery of Jack's RoaringRampageOfRevenge against the White Boys and both sides think it's some insane vigilante or RuthlessForeignGangsters striking from the shadows.

* KarmaHoudini: Victor Manning, getting out of Dodge after his one scene and sending a picture to Caine in order to gloat about it. On the other hand, the complete slaughter of his gang back on Houston is going to make things harder for him in the long run...

* AddledAddict: Bruce the Scientist, the police lab technician shows signs of several personal issues relating substance abuse and dependency. His body constantly shakes, he screams, he brews extra-caffeinated coffee because regular coffee isn't strong enough for him, and the presence of a federal agent makes him paranoid and overly agitated, leading to him stashing various unnamed drugs and pills lying around on his lab table in a panic.

Jack Caine (Lundgren) is a Houston cop who is determined to wipe out the White Boys, a gang of white-collar drug dealers who killed his partner while Caine was waylaid stopping a convenience store robbery. Little does he know that there is a new drug dealer in town, one who preys on heroin addicts in order to get his own drug of trade - made from the endorphins extracted from heroin users. But this guy's home turf isn't in Houston. It isn't even on planet Earth...
