* HeyItsThatGuy: [[{{Downplayed}} Sort of]]. Chief Dave kind of looks like [[{{VideoGame/inFamous}} Cole]]. Abul Shabal has Cole's voice!

* WhatCouldHaveBeen: There is an alternate cut floating around where the scene between Chief Dave and Lieutenant Rorke aboard the ''USS Bonhomme Richard'' goes differently. Instead of a conversation about flags, patriotism, and lineage, the two discuss Rorke's impending transfer out of the SEALs to a desk job with Dave needling Rorke about becoming a paper commando and Rorke pretending to take offense. It's a subtler scene that reinforces the friendship between the two men.

Added DiffLines:

* MoreDakka: The filmmakers stressed repeatedly that the most of the gunfire seen in the film was shot during live fire exercises and because [=SEALs=] are constantly practicing to hone their skills, they went through a healthy number of bullets by the time production wrapped.

Added DiffLines:

* CastTheExpert: Taken UpToEleven. The SEAL platoon is played by real life [=SEALs=].
** Although they were planning to use real [=SEALs=] anyway, they had to because, supposedly, no stunt man was physically capable of pulling off what they needed.
* DoingItForTheArt: The fire being put down by the SWCC boats? More often than not it's live ammo.
** That truck getting blown up by an RPG? No special effects whatsoever, that was a real truck getting hit with a real RPG.

Added DiffLines:

* BackedByThePentagon: Among other things, filming at Navy training facilities, support from Navy aircraft and ships, including a submarine, and active-duty Navy [=SEALs=] playing the main characters. Interestingly, the Navy claims that no taxpayer money was used, as the combat scenes were filmed during scheduled training exercises.
