* ChestOfMedals: General Hummel's dress uniform. It's used to establish his credentials: during the opening credits, we see him put it on, and even when we know nothing else about him, the sheer amount of medals on his chest shows that this man is a war hero who is very good at what he does.

** Hummel telling the children to leave Alcatraz before he takes over. Before that, during the opening credits, we see him put on his dress uniform, which is covered in medals. We then see him walking through a cemetery, and when he passes the honour guard of a fallen marine, he immediately salutes as he walks past. This tells us everything we need to know about him: he's a highly decorated war hero who is utterly loyal to his men and to fallen soldiers.

* MessyHair: Mason grew it while imprisoned. Thus Goodspeed suggests him to cut it, because the look would only work if he was "a 30 year old musician from Seattle. It's a {{Grunge}} thing."

* DesperateObjectCatch: Played with when one of the green spheres of V-X drops off the end of the set Goodspeed is disarming. With the rest of the fragile spheres taking up both hands, he ''can't'' spare one to catch the runaway, but he uses the springy laces on top of his boot to give it a soft landing, then puts the others down ''very carefully'' and intercepts the fallen one before it can roll off a ledge and break.

* PosthumousCharacter: Hummel's wife Barbara. He's seen visiting her grave at the beginning of the film.
-->'''Hummel''': General Hummel: I miss you so much. [long pause] There's something I've gotta do, Barb. Something I couldn't do while you were here. I tried. You know I tried everything, and I still don't have their attention. Let's hope this elevates their thinking. But whatever happens... [he takes Congressional Medal of Honor out of his pocket] ...please don't think less of me. [he sets the Medal on top of the headstone, leans over and kisses it, and then walks away]

* NightmareFuel: One of Hummel's men falling victim to the VX gas during the raid. Seeing his genuine panic as his body begins to boil is pretty unnerving, as is the fact that his fellow marines can do nothing for him.

A late draft of the script was written by none other than QuentinTarantino (who wasn't a member of the Writer's Guild at the time, and so was uncredited). Creator/AaronSorkin also did some work on the script, writing some of the dialogue between Goodspeed and Mason.
