* BigLippedAlligatorMoment: Amsterdam looks out across the lake where there are people dancing in front of a fire. The scene shifts immediately after. [[FlatWhat What?]]
* [[DracoInLeatherPants Draco In A]] [[NiceHat Pimping Top-Hat]]: Bill Cutting. Not that anyone else in the movie is a good person, but for some reason Bill gets lionized above others due to his {{Badass}} factor.

** In the fight at the beginning of the film, Hell-cat Maggie somehow manages to leap high enough into the air that she can swoop down on an unsuspecting enemy and bite his ear off. One thinks of BatmanArkhamAsylum.

* AntiClimaxBoss: Though the scene itself is climactic to all hell, Bill and Amsterdam trade a little more than a few swipes, then get thrown on their asses by cannon fire. It's ultimately a piece of rebar to the gut that does Bill in, with Amsterdam helping along.



** The whole anachronistic soundtrack is amazing for the blend of differnet music. Creator/PeterGabriel's "Signal to Noise" scores the opening fight, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NuzmTfj4cJA "Vows" by Brian Dunning]] which plays over the finale. [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RDar1ymGbjg "Shimmy She Wobble"]], by Othar Turner's Fife and Drum Blues which is the general fight music, there's also "Dark Moon, High Tide" by the Afro-Celt Sound System.

** And of course the few folk songs thrown in, "My friend Hattie, New York Girls" and especially "Paddy's Lamentation" which plays over the EpicTrackingShot showing immigrant arriving and force-enlisted into the army.

* {{Tearjerker}}: [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p-8Lu7MRjQs The ending.]] "In the end, they put candles on the bodies, so's their friends -- if they had any -- could know them in the dark. The city did this free of charge. It was four days and nights before the worst of the mob was finally put down. We never knew how many New Yorkers died that week before the city was finally delivered. My father once told me we was all born of blood and tribulation. So then, too, was our great city. But for those of us who had lived and died in them furious days... it was like everything we knew was mightily swept away. And no matter what they did to build this city back up again -- for the rest of time -- it would be like nobody even knew we was ever here."
