Added DiffLines:

* BunnyEarsLawyer: Lyn's old, [[spoiler:retired]], and a bit daft, but he mostly stays calm under fire and is still a capable combatant.


Added DiffLines:

* DualWielding: The cornerstone of the Echmeyer method. This doesn't stop Lyn (a firm convert to the style) from trying to perform it against a hostage taker [[spoiler:sans weapons.]]


Added DiffLines:

* NotSoHarmless: Nonlethal doesn't necessarily guarantee that the nonlethal object won't really, really hurt you.


Added DiffLines:

** The bizarre conversation between Brown and Hopgood fretting that "We can't afford to have the Russians leading the field in the paranormal" is strongly reminiscent of Turgidson complaining of a "mine shaft gap" with the Russians in ''Film/DrStrangelove'' (this "psychic powers gap" was in fact a [[TruthInTelevision real fear for the US Army at the time).

* NotMakingThisUpDisclaimer: The movie opens with [[HeyItsThatGuy a mustachioed]] [[{{Film/Avatar}} Colonel Quaritch]] getting up from a desk and deliberately running head-first into a wall. Cut to a title card stating "More of this story is true than you would believe." The juxtaposition is funny.

** In the case of the CIA and military's experiments with LSD, this version of the story is quite a bit tamer and less horrific than what actually happened (for instance, a CIA employee was given LSD without his knowledge, experienced a hallucination which caused him to jump out a window).
