*** In the book, the guy Brenner is investigating isn't trying to sell weapons to some RightWingMilitia, but to some group claiming to want to liberate Cuba. Said militia also never comes gunning for Brenner, so there is no fight in the beginning.

* ArtisticLicenseMilitary: Brenner tells someone that, "you have no right to remain silent," when Article 31 of the UCMJ allows precisely that. In the book, it was a valid statement. Brenner told the person that he was speaking to, "You are under arrest and you are not a suspect in this crime, therefore you do not have the right to remain silent and you are required to answer my questions."

* RapeIsASpecialKindOfEvil: Brenner spends the whole movie trying to figure out who killed Elisabeth, which leads to an investigation of her rape [[spoiler:while at West Point which was covered up.]] During his search for truth, he is told by another character that what happened to her was worse than rape. His response, "What's worse than rape?" is pure this trope. The answer is: [[spoiler:Betrayal. The General agreed to help cover up his daughter's rape in exchange for a promotion.]]
