** Infiltrating a facility full of mercenaries led by a FallenHero who was only looking for justice for his soldier in order to disable a weapon of mass destruction. Sounds a lot like the plot of ''VideoGame/MetalGear1''.

* CompleteMonster: [[BigBad Captain Frye]] and his henchman [[TheDragon Captain Darrow]] attempt to extort money by threatening San Francisco with [[DeadlyGas VX nerve gas]]. While their superior, [[WellIntentionedExtremist Brigadier General Francis X. Hummel]], wants to distribute the money to families of soldiers whose deaths went unrecognized and without compensation, they only want it for themselves and deliberately provoke a massacre of a Navy SEAL team just because they like killing. When it becomes apparent Hummel is bluffing, they act swiftly to remove Hummel from command and eventually kill him while proceeding with the attack. Even when it becomes apparent they've lost, Frye and Darrow try to send a rocket at the city armed with poison gas to kill every civilian they possibly can and provoke the army into killing the 81 tourists they have locked in Alcatraz to ensure a lack of witnesses. Their [[{{Greed}} whole motivation]] is as Darrow himself says: "I want my FUCKING! MONEY!"

* SugarWiki/RuleOfSeanConnery: It's widely considered Bay's best movie, and [[http://www.rottentomatoes.com/celebrity/michael_bay/ his only "Fresh"]] on RottenTomatoes. Considering it stars the guy who names the trope...
