* FingertipDrugAnalysis: Lizzie does this to ascertain the contents of some jugs of pure liquid meth found during a raid.

* FingertipDrugAnalysis: Lizzie does this to ascertain the contents of some jugs of pure liquid meth found during a raid. A bit more justified than usual however, in that the team freak right the hell out when she does this, and she's a FunctionalAddict anyway.

* BecauseImGoodAtIt: Grinder remarks that his life is basically over [[spoiler: after he tells Brentwood the truth]], because his career is basically over and he doesnít know how to do anything else. [[spoiler: Heís shot in the head immediately afterwards, so itís rendered irrelevant.]]

* BecauseImGoodAtIt: Grinder remarks that his life is basically over [[spoiler: after he tells Brentwood the truth]], because his career is basically over and he doesnít know how to do anything else. [[spoiler: Heís shot in the head immediately afterwards, so itís rendered irrelevant.]]


Added DiffLines:

* BottomlessMagazines: He does reload at one point, but Breacher fires about twice as many rounds as his .45 has any right to hold in the final fight.
* CementShoes: [[spoiler: The Guatemalans were weighted down, wrapped in chicken wire to keep the bloat from making them pop up, but they get pulled up by a fishermanís anchor.]]


Added DiffLines:

* FailedASpotCheck: None of Breacher's highly-trained DEA team realized that the one Mexican police officer ''not'' wearing a helmet or balaclava might be someone to watch, since officers need to do that to hide their identities or risk Cartel retribution. At the end of the film somehow in the middle of Mexico a bunch of cartel guards didnít manage to spot the giant Austrian man until it was way too late, although it's admittedly in a dark bar and heís dressed to blend in.


Added DiffLines:

* HeKnowsTooMuch: The team captured a high-level drug lord in Juarez and was about to turn him over to the Mexican federal police. Then a Cartel hitter dressed as one of the Mexicans shot the guy in the head to prevent the man from talking.


Added DiffLines:

* HeroicBSOD: Brentwood has a brief FreakOut after finding out [[spoiler: Breacher stole the money that lasts just long enough for him to disappear.]]
* IWasNeverHere: Inverted example. [[spoiler: The man Breacher bribes makes it very clear to him that the official story is they never met.]]


Added DiffLines:

* OneLastSmoke: [[spoiler: Mortally wounded in a Mexican dive bar, Breacher enjoys a last drink and a cigar before bleeding to death.]]


Added DiffLines:

* ReassignedToAntarctica: The team, with a side of KickedUpstairs for Breacher. It's implied that the DEA was trying to get them to either quit or confess.
* RedemptionEqualsDeath: Almost ''immediately'' after [[spoiler: confessing to Brentwood that they did steal the money, Grinder takes a bullet to the head.]]
* ScrewThisImOuttaHere: Subverted. The team comes to the conclusion that one of their own is killing them off, and Grinder promises to kill any of the others if he sees them before riding off. The next scene is him spilling the beans to Brentwood, and right after that he apologizes to Breacher.

* CigaretteOfAnxiety: Brentwood, after they find Neck ''nailed to the ceiling''.



* CutApart: Tripod's death - it seems like Breacher and Brentwood show up at his house at the same time as a trio of gunmen, but it turns out that the gunmen got there much earlier than they did and killed Tripod.



* ElitesAreMoreGlamorous: Tripod was apparently a Navy SEAL. Breacher's entire team is allegedly an elite DEA unit, but [[RagTagBunchOfMisfits you'd never know it to look at them.]]



* PerpSweating / ThePerryMasonMethod: The interrogations the team underwent. Seems like the DEA figured the best way to get Breacher's team to confess was to yell at them and taunt them.

John "Breacher" Wharton (Creator/ArnoldSchwarzenegger) is the leader of an [[BadassCrew elite team of DEA agents]], including James "Monster" Murray ([[Film/{{AVATAR}} Sam Worthington]]) and his wife Lizzy Murray ([[Film/WorldWarZ Mireille]] [[TheKilling Enos]]), Joe "Grinder" Philips (a hulking, bison-like Joe Manganiello), Julius "Sugar" Edmonds ([[Film/IronMan Terrence Howard]]), Eddie "Neck" Jordan (Creator/JoshHolloway) and Tom "Pyro" Roberts ([[Film/PacificRim Max]] [[CaptainPhillips Martini]]). The team comes under investigation for pilfering money from a bust on a drug cartel's safe house. Turns out they DID pilfer the money, but someone made off with it before they could retrieve it. As if the investigation and their own suspicions about each other weren't enough, they are now being killed off one by one, and UsefulNotes/{{Atlanta}} Police investigator Caroline Brentwood (Olivia Williams) is shining an additional light on the team's activities. Is it the cartel exacting their revenge, or is one of the team members the killer?
