* BadAss: {{Badass}}: Many -- comrade Sukhov, former customs officer Vereshchagin and Sayid. BigBad Black Abdullah can also be considered one. .



* FakeNationality: No named Central Asian character are played by Central Asians, e.g. Abdullah is an ethnic Georgian, and Sayid and Gyulchatai are ethnic Russians.



* TroubledProduction: the production was riddled with misfortunes. A stuntman died, actors getting drunk and participating in fights with locals was normal, after two years of filming the crew exceeded the budget and all the studio bosses didn't liked what they shot so far. After the shooting was over it went through heavy ExecutiveMeddling from the officials, and yet the bosses still didn't like the outcome. If it wasn't for Brezhnev himself who had a habit of watching all new western and soviet movies on his [[{{Dacha}} dacha]], this movie would have never had a proper release. [[NetworkToTheRescue Brezhnev LOVED the movie, and all arguments from officials ended]].
* WhatMeasureIsAMook: Villanous variation of the trope. Abdullah shows little care for his {{mooks}}. When he [[spoiler:captures Sayid after his CrowningMomentOfAwesome, he shows no grudge for killing his men, but only astonishment why Sayid killed them â "I've sent them only to tell you not to seek for Djavded in a dry creek: he's not there!"]]

* GoodGunsBadGuns: Inverted. In Soviet media Mauser C96 is a classic Good Gun, strongly associated with the Bolsheviks and RedOctober. But in that movie it's used by BigBad.

** His sword lets us pinpoint his former allegiance more precisely. He only could acquire a katana in the Far Eastern White remnant, which was backed by Japanese troops for a short period of time. Yet his rank is army, not Cossack, so he could not be a Cossack of General Semyonov's troops originally. So, most likely, he was part of General Kappel's army that escaped to Transbaikal and joined Semyonov's forces after Admiral Kolchak's arrest and execution.
