* WrongfulAccusationInsurance: Played unbelievably straight, even more so than in [[Film/TheFugitive its predecessor]]. In the course of proving his innocence and attempting to flee the country, Sheridan commits ''numerous'' felonies, including kidnapping, assault, and even attempted murder (when he shoots Gerard, even if he did deliberately aim for his bullet-proof vest) of a federal agent. His girlfriend counts as well, for aiding and abetting him the whole way, and what's more, given that she might not yet be a US citizen, or even in the country legally; ''her'' actions could have resulted in her being deported. But when the movie ends, they're all strolling out of a courthouse with a few throwaway lines about how he has been "cleared of all charges".

* HeHadAName: [[spoiler: As Noah lies mortally wounded in an ambulance, and the Emts work on him desperately, they say encouraging things like, "Stay with us, Buddy/Pardner/Pal." Gerard, sitting in the ambulance in the midst of a Heroic BSOD, says very quietly, "His name is Noah." The Emts immediately switch to using his real name. Unfortunately, it doesn't help.]]

* CoolGuns: Gerard tells DSS Special Agent John Royce (Creator/RobertDowneyJr.) to "Get yourself a Glock and lose that nickel-plated sissy pistol," referring to Royce's Taurus [=PT45=]. It becomes a major plot point (a literal ChekhovsGun) later in the movie.

** It's easy to miss, but the Kentucky State Trooper who stops the truck Sheridan is hiding in has a S&W 1006 in 10mm Auto, which was actually issued by the Kentucky State Police at the time.

* CaliforniaDoubling: Chicago doubles for New York City.
** This is most egregious during the chase from the cemetery in Queens after the shooting incident, when Sheridan runs across a set of railroad tracks just seconds before a Metra train (Chicago's commuter railroad) passes by.
** When Sheridan jumps off of the Loreli building which is supposed to be in Queens, he winds up on top of a Metro North train leaving 125th Street station in Harlem, Upper East Side. The Queens location of the Loreli Building is confirmed when Newman's body is delivered to Elmhurst Hospital in Queens.

* MissedHimByThatMuch: One of Gerard's marshals is assigned to tail Sheridan's girlfriend Marie. He tails her to a Sax department store in New York City where she covertly meets with Sheridan inside a dressing room. The marshal waits outside, but by the time he gets an order to check the dressing room, he finds Marie all by herself. Since she's in the process of putting on a new dress, the marshal is forced to apologize and claim that he mistook her for a shoplifter.
