** English's story of getting jailed for killing two white men in self-defense would be disturbing to listen to following the Michael Brown shooting.

* HarsherInHindsight: An airing of the movie on a Creator/{{Starz}} channel occurred the ''exact same night'' that two convicted killers [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2015_Clinton_Correctional_Facility_escape escaped]] from a maximum-security prison in upstate New York. What's more, the men used several tactics seen in this movie, such as the SleepingDummy.

** Even more awesome (or HarsherInHindsight, for some people) is that recently as of the time of this writing (April 2016) evidence has appeared that Morris and the Anglins made it to shore and communicated with some of those closest to them, and so managed to live on the lam for about a decade after escaping (and with some luck, maybe are ''still living'' on the lam). And there are some years remaining until the StatuteOfLimitations on their escape order is over...

* MagnificentBastard: Frank Morris is a real life example. He masterminded the escape from this supposedly inescapable prison island with the Anglin brothers without a trace and became a legend. Even better, Series/MythBusters found his chance of success plausible.

* MoralEventHorizon: Dear God, this is ''not'' how a prison warden should behave! Yet sadly, the Warden crosses it in his zeal to control the prisoners, to the point where [[HarryPotter Umbridge]] may have learned a thing or two from him in running Hogwarts.
