* CrossCulturalKerfluffle: A minor one, but the Spanish and Europeans in general aren't generally so prone to flag-waving as Americans, let alone when the event is a speech by the ''US president'' (?).

** Nevermind that it is an international summit, but it is presided by the city's mayor (with no member of the Spanish national government apparently present), the President of the United States is the absolute star, and the public waves a zillion Spanish flags at him and only Spanish flags, something much more reminiscent of {{Eagleland}} (If they want to honor the POTUS and Spanish-American relations, shouldn't they be Spanish ''and'' American flags? And what about the other foreign representatives there? Does nobody care about them?). It's painfully evident that the writer had an American president giving a speech in the US in mind and only painted a light "but in Spain" coat over it.

* IdiotBall
** The Secret Service for not moving the President much further away than just the hotel next door to the active assassination scene;
** Suarez for not using anything more reliable for tranquillising the president;
** The girl for running away and under the cars;
** the assassin for continuously being obtuse about his brotherís realistic condition;
** the president for not checking the dead guy as a source of weapons before going with a melee attack.

* ArtisticLicenseGeography: Unless the city utilizes some 4-dimensional enlargement technology, thereís no way all the characters would end up in each otherís way so often.



* BottomlessMagazines: Agent Barnesí SIG-Sauer P229 has a 12+1 magazine capacity, and yet he manages to shoot at least 23 bullets without reloading even once.



* EvenEvilHasStandards / WouldntHurtAChild: [[spoiler: The terrorist plot is derailed because the terrorist can't kill a little girl... ''after having planted two bombs which probably killed dozens''.]]

* InfantImmortality



* PlotArmor: Agent Barnes has got to have one at least for surviving that car crash.



* PoliceAreUseless: The Spanish police and military seem to be not only completely oblivious to what is going on around them uring those twenty minutes, even (or especially) compared to the American Secret Service (case in point - USSS agents chase a terror suspect down the street on their own, ''shoot'' at said suspect, and yet there are dozens of oblivious Spanish cops and soldiers running past them into the other direction), but one of them is even seemingly involved with the terrorists as well.
