* BiggerBad: Kim Jong-Un. While he doesn't appear anywhere in the movie (except for some of the news reports during the opening credits), he's the leader of North Korea.
** Russia and China. Though the occupation of the Pacific Northwest goes to the North Koreans, Colonel Tanner's remarks indicate that Russia invaded the East Coast, China the rest of the West Coast. The ambush that [[spoiler:kills Jed]] is also caused by Russian advisers attached to the North Koreans.



* BrokenAesop: A meta-example. The film's message about standing up for your ideals and never giving in to foreign invaders rings rather hollow given that the filmmakers censored the identity of the villains in post-production to retain access to that [[MoneyDearBoy sweet Chinese box office cash.]]
** Not to mention the fact that Jed openly compares the Wolverines to [[IraqWar the insurgents he fought in Iraq]], even saying at one point, [[YourTerroristsAreOurFreedomFighters "Over there, we were the good guys. We enforced order. Here, we're the bad guys. We cause chaos."]] This comparison led some critics to wonder if the remake was intended as a StealthParody meant as propaganda against the IraqWar, though the filmmakers deny this.

Added DiffLines:

* RefugeInAudacity: While infiltrating the police station, SMAJ Tanner has to get across the main lobby in full view of a dozen Nork soldiers. After briefly assessing his options, he slings his M4 and calmly strolls across the room, having correctly surmised that in the slightly-dim light, nobody on the North Korean night shift will pay much attention to an armed man in camouflage (just like everyone else in the building) who acts like he belongs there.

* NiceJobBreakingItHero: At one point, Matt's carelessness and impulsiveness results in the death of a comrade. Jed calls him out on it.

* EstablishingCharacterMoment: Matt is reckless on the football field, which leads to gains for his team but also his getting tackled to the ground in the following plays. This AttackAttackAttack nature reflects how he fights the North Koreans, at least initially.
