** Mason hands over the microfilm with the truth behind WhoShotJFK and other secrets to Goodspeed. NicolasCage would later get his hands on ''the original copy'' in ''NationalTreasure: Book of Secrets''.

* SoCoolItsAwesome: As mentioned above, it's considered to be Michael Bay's best movie, and it even has SeanConnery in the movie, as well as getting a "Fresh" on RottenTomatoes. There's something of a 'hey, it's that famously idiosyncratic actor' value as well - Nicolas Cage and Sean Connery both starring.

* RootingForTheEmpire: Hummel is incredibly easy to root for. He only uses violent force when he absolutely has to, takes no joy in the methods he's been forced to use, is fighting for an unequivocally righteous cause (getting financial aid for the surviving families of subordinates who died under his command while on black ops missions the government has disavowed) and ultimately reveals [[spoiler: he was never planning to launch the rockets anyway and even aids the heroes in disabling them in his dying moments.]].

* [=Squick=]: After Mason drops an entire AC unit on his head, one of the soldier's feet is ''still twitching'' as they disarm the first rocket. Goodspeed is greatly unnerved by this.

** [[Series/BreakingBad Tuco]] [[Series/BetterCallSaul Salamanca]] was once a Marine sergeant who was skilled with motion sensors. He still knows when something isn't right.

** And in case you thought they did it by accident (although they enjoyed it), there is the scene later on when they decide to carry on with the missile attack after Hummel decides to call it off (revealing that he was bluffing all along). As put by Darrow, they are mercenaries now, so if they want to get paid, they need to make sure the government sees that they weren't weak.

* MagnumOpus: This is the one Michael Bay film that most almost everyone can agree on is a fine film.

* NightmareFuel: One of Hummel's men falling victim to the VX gas during the raid. Seeing his genuine panic as his body begins to boil is pretty unnerving, as is the fact that his fellow marines can do nothing for him.
