* AsLongAsItSoundsForeign: We have here a Mongolian nomad speaking Cantonese. Though it's slightly possible that the nomad has been dealing with the company's Cantonese employee like Ian and learned the language.

* [[ActionizedSequel Actionized]] [[TheRemake Remake]]: In comparison to the original, including various sequences such as a more action-packed crash sequence (which includes the propeller take mentioned below), a lightning storm which almost makes the plane's gas reserves explode, a sandstorm that nearly wrecks the construction site, and the nomad sub-plot escalating with a gun battle and the nomads chasing after the ''Phoenix'' as she tries to lift off with intent of killing the crew (in revenge for them killing some nomads in self-defense on said gun battle).

* MidairRepair: The final action sequence includes Elliot having to climb the plane's fuselage to fix the controls as the ''Phoenix'' is picking up speed for takeoff in order for the plane to achieve this (and having to dodge gunfire from the angry nomads chasing the group as well).

** Captain Towns and AJ are both Jerkasses as well. They show no concern for the roughnecks who are losing their livelihood and insult them for failing to find oil. They basically treat these people as nothing more than a thankless job that they now have to do. Towns gets into the crash because he doesn't want to be with them longer.

* SettingUpdate: To 2004. Note OutKast's ''Hey Ya!'' playing on the CD player, and Ian's cellphone. Outside of that, few references to time periods are mentioned.
