* [[spoiler: AccidentalMurder: James accidentally shoots Mike]].
* [[spoiler: BolivianArmyEnding: Some children stumble upon the couple's corpses, only to find that Kristen is still alive...though noticeably mentally traumatized. The credits roll before we get to find out if she'll ultimately survive (or if she's just clinging to life), or if James is alive as well.]]



* [[spoiler: MenAreTheExpendableGender: Of the two main characters, only the female one gets to live to the end of the movie, even though it defies everything the movie set up before.]]



* [[spoiler: NotQuiteDead: Kristen]]
