* ArtisticLicenseLaw: Sheriff Ray Owens asks to see Lewis Dinkum's gun permit, then threatens Dinkum with a citation for carrying a [[HandCannon large revolver]]. The film takes place in Arizona, where anyone over the age of 21 may legally carry a concealed firearm without a permit, and where there is no restriction on revolvers, whatever the caliber. No citation could be given to Dinkum unless he is specifically not allowed to own a firearm based on his record.
* BadassDriver: Cortez shows off some pretty good skills, by stopping a FBI swat team from interrupting his escape, by personally taking them out with just his car.
** It's also mentioned that he has been racing since he was just a kid.

Sheriff Ray Owens asks to see Lewis Dinkum's gun permit, then threatens Dinkum with a citation for carrying a [[HandCannon large revolver]].

No citation could be given to Dinkum unless he is specifically not allowed to own a firearm based on his record.
** Dinkum claims to be running a museum to justify the large number of firearms he owns. Throughout most of the United States, apart from a few cities like New York or Chicago, the only limit to the number of firearms a person with a clean record may legally own and possess is how many they can afford to buy. Granted, Dinkum takes it UpToEleven and then some...
** Finally, Dinkum has a Vickers machine gun which is supposed to be non-functional, but has all the parts available to repair it, which he implies would be illegal. This is true, but if Dinkum were as big a gun nut as the film presents him as, he could just get a Class-III license from BATFE and take the Vickers, the Tommy Gun, and whatever other fully-automatic weapons he may or may not have to the range whenever he wants. If he can afford all the other stuff in his garage and still pay to keep the lights on, the [[CrackIsCheaper fee]] for the Class-III license should be no big deal.

* DisproportionateRetribution: PlayedForLaughs. The knitting granny Mrs. Salazar tells a Mook stalking Owens through her shop, "No trespassing!" He just blows her off, so she responds by [[{{BFG}} blowing him away]]. It's clear she did it for more than that reason, of course, but the MoodWhiplash is what sells the scene.
** The reaction of the mayor to seeing his wrecked Corvette and Owens' one-liner pretty much scream he believes this happened to him.

This film marks Creator/ArnoldSchwarzenegger's first leading role since ''Film/Terminator3RiseOfTheMachines'' in 2003, and him working with famed director, [[Film/TheGoodTheBadTheWeird Kim]] [[Film/ISawTheDevil Ji-woon]]. Despite this the film barely made over it's budget at the box office leading to questions about Schwarzenegger's box office drawing power in his post-political and post-divorce career.
