Doing a little tweaking with the SEF trope.
* SpecialEffectsFailure: They apparently had a CGI budget of "ten bucks and an old Amiga", and ''hoo boy'' does it show.

Considering the effects in the original movie (which came out almost 20 years before this did) looked much better than this movie, yeah, it

This was not narm. There was also no special effects failure and the movie had a decently large CGI budget, just because the quality isn't up to your modern standards does not make it bad.
* {{Narm}}: ** Hershey's Chinese {{Mook}} talking about "The Nightwind" as a way to attack Cuervo's base.

** Cliff Robertson, who played the President, would be better known to modern audiences as [[Film/SpiderMan Uncle Ben]], a role as far removed from this one as it gets.

** The President's delivery of the line "You didn't finish the mission, Snake" makes him sound a lot like [[MetalGearSolid Colonel Campbell]].

** The remotes ("Everyone's got one") are highly reminiscent of Smartphones (though in a {{Zeerust}}y way).

Added DiffLines:
* MoralEventHorizon: The President has already proven himself a fundamentalist lunatic who purposely introduced a tyrannical new regime in the United States and views the rest of the world as scum to be destroyed. He later shows that he was serious about the orders he gave Snake when he orders [[OffingTheOffspring his own daughter killed by electrocution]] even after her return to the mainland, visibly disgusting even Snake.

** Snake shutting down the world is both this and hilarious on account of the recent Ice Storm in Ontario 2013. It's a double whammy since Canada was the original Escape Plan in [[EscapeFromNewYork New York,]] and this movie taking place in a fictional 2013. * ItWasHisSled
