* GenreThrowback: To 80s and early 90s science-fiction action movies like ''Film/TotalRecall1990'', ''Film/EscapeFromNewYork'' and even more so its sequel ''Film/EscapeFromLA''.

** Snow's lighter swiftly turns out to be more useful than MacGyver's Swiss Army Knife. Well, almost.

* MacGuffin: Even before [[ThePresidentsDaughter Emily]] gets nabbed to set up the main action, Snow is seeking a briefcase that contains proof of his innocence. Like all good [=MacGuffins=], its actual contents [[spoiler: (or lack thereof)]] are ultimately irrelevant to its role in the plot.

* TheNotLoveInterest: Snow and Emilie. The former is sent on a mission to save [[ThePresidentsDaughter the latter]] when she is held hostage onboard a giant orbital space prison. The two bicker and banter and Snow basically acts like a jerk towards her the whole time, but they grow to genuinely care for each other. The epilogue when they arrive back on earth teases a romance and includes an almost-AlmostKiss, but the movie ends with them still just friends.

* ThickerThanWater: Another prisoner questions the riot leader Alex why he doesn't kill the obviously psychotic prisoner who is clearly a liability because of his homocidal urges. Alex responds that it's because that guy, Hydell, is his brother. [[spoiler:This tragically ensures his downfall, as Hydell kills Alex himself when he refuses to put up with Hydell's lunacy anymore.]]

Added DiffLines:

* TwentyMinutesIntoTheFuture: The film is set in 2079.
** Humanity has a greater presence in space, with MS-One and various other space stations (including the ISS) orbiting Earth. There is even a Low Orbit Police Department to maintain order.
** The White House and its surroundings have become considerably more fortified, with the Oval Office now being located deep underground.
** Ground and airel vehicles have also advanced considerably, with Snow seen briefly driving a single wheeled motorcycle, and the DC Metro Police utilising hovering plane/helicopter hybrids to pursue him.

Added DiffLines:

* PoliceAreUseless: The whole plot is arguably set in motion due to the incompetence of Emilie's Secret Service agents. The lead agent refuses to remove his back up gun before entering an interrogation room, which allows the Hydell (a former pickpocket) to acquire a weapon and escape.


Added DiffLines:

* TookALevelInBadass: Emilie shows herself to be surprisingly adept at handling a submachine gun to keep a group of prisoners away, much to Snows amazement.
