** The threat that Payne gives the biker is pretty much verbatim to one given by ''Film/BillyJack''. The biker even lampshades it by saying "I'm not scared with that ''Billy Jack'' bullshit!" before trying to fight Payne... and then gets to regret it. Hard.

Added DiffLines:

* NoPlaceForAWarrior: The movie begins with Payne being honorably discharged from the USMC because of peacetime budget cuts and getting almost arrested because he's too much of a BloodKnight to be a policeman (which is the first job he applied to, after a period of having a psychotic breakdown at his home).


Added DiffLines:

** His BoredomMontage-slash-psychotic-breakdown montage after being discharged is a copy of a similar sequence at the beginning of ''Film/ApocalypseNow''.

* CutHisHeartOutWithASpoon: Payne informs Alex why he shouldn't push his luck: luck, [[spoiler:though {{Subverted}} in that Alex calls his bluff; it isn't made clear as to whether or not Payne wouldn't or ''couldn't'' go through with it, however]]:

* TheAce: Stone is the closest to this among the cadets. Despite appearing BrilliantButLazy in his first scene, he's the most talented of any of them at just about everything, and a natural leader.

* TheAce: Stone is the closest to this among the cadets. Despite appearing BrilliantButLazy in his first scene, he's the most talented of any of them at just about everything, and a natural leader. Payne recognizes this, which is why he promotes Stone to squad leader after his most recent plan to get rid of him failed and he owned up to it.
