* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: [[spoiler: Jimmy. Anticipates everything the cops are going to do, because he is one. Knows that killing women who used to date Tom will make Tom the prime suspect. And wears a bulletproof vest during the final confrontation, knowing full well that someone will try to shoot him.]]

* GenreSavvy: Tom displays this by observing something about the still-unknown killer, "We make a move, he makes a move. We don't make a move, he doesn't make a move. I'm telling you Dad, it's a cop."

* NotEvenBotheringWithTheAccent: Dennis Farina with his pronounced Chicago accent and Bruce Willis, Tom Sizemore and Robert Pastorelli with their equally obvious NewYorkCity accents. Problem was, they are playing characters who were born and raised in UsefulNotes/{{Pittsburgh}}.

* WordSaladTitle: "Striking Distance" refers to nothing in the movie, unless you count that sometimes the characters are actually within striking distance of each other.
** The shooting title was the more appropriate "Three Rivers". It was possibly changed to make it seem more like an action film.
