* DieHardOnAnX: Seemingly a precursor to the genre, with terrorists hijacking an oil platform, beating ''Franchise/DieHard'' by nearly a decade. While all the parts are in place for a ''Die Hard'' clone, it's actually a subversion, since the film is quite slow-paced and focuses more on the protagonists' carefully-planned tactics rather than action.

* ActingAgainstType: Roger Moore plays an action hero who's the opposite of his most famous role of JamesBond. He wants nothing to do with women and his FatherNeptune persona is the exact opposite of Bond's suave.

* Jerkass: Kramer's not AffablyEvil or FauxAffablyEvil in the slightest. He insults the captain, mocks his Norwegian accent, makes several bad jokes about his victims, and routinely screams at people.
