* 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...

** Mason jokes about "losing his sex appeal" while in prison; Sean Connery would be named the Sexiest Man of the Century by People at the age of sixty-nine a mere three years later.

* {{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.

* In laying the groundwork for the Iraqi war, the American and British governments relied on an alleged Iraqi chemical weapons scientist who testified Saddam Hussein was manufacturing chemical weapons. And then storing them in ludicrously inefficient strings of glass beads. Despite numerous intelligence officials stating this 'expert witness's only experience with chemical weapons was watching ''The Rock'', his testimony was '''still''' used as a basis for the war. It's like the incompetent US government from the film came true....

* SoCoolItsAwesome: As mentioned above, it's considered to be Michael Bay's best movie, and it even has Creator/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.

** 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''.
** Likewise, this wasn't the last time Nicolas Cage would face a WellIntentionedExtremist version of Ed Harris, who is the villian in ''NationalTreasure: Book of Secrets''.
