* CoolVsAwesome: Well, not quite "versus" (although the TroubledProduction might hint at that...), but Michael Crichton (i.e. ''Jurassic Park'') and John [=McTiernan=] (of ''Film/DieHard'' fame) working together on a project has to qualify.

* MisaimedFandom: The fact that the film is very famous for its respectful attitude to Arab culture and has an Arab as a protagonist does not prevent it from being very popular among neo-pagans and people who are negative about Islam and multiculturalism.

* AdaptationDisplacement: Averted. The studio heavily promoted the involvement of "Michael Crichton, author of ''Jurassic Park''" in this film. If Crichton was involved, there had to be a book... and the book had to be better. So most people who enjoyed the film likely read the book right after.

Added DiffLines:

* CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming: A couple of exchanges.
** This one:
--->'''Herger the Joyous:''' We shall pray for your safe return!\\
'''Ahmad Ibn Fahdlan:''' Pray to whom?\\
'''Herger the Joyous:''' In your land one God may be enough, but here we have need of many. I will pray to all of them for you. Do not be offended!\\
'''Ahmad Ibn Fahdlan:''' I'll be in your debt!\\
'''Herger the Joyous:''' Goodbye, Arab!\\
'''Ahmad Ibn Fahdlan:''' Goodbye, Northman.
** And this one while Bulliwf lies dying after the climactic battle:
--->'''Bulliwyf:''' I have only these hands I will die a pauper.\\
'''King Hrothgar:''' ''[after a heavy pause]'' You will be buried as a '''king'''.

* GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff: This film is very popular in Russia, especially among historical reconstructors and supporters of right-wing views, because the "northerners" in the film can be interpreted as Varangians and the film's events as if taking place in the territory of the future Kievan Rus. Moreover, the real Ahmad ibn Fadlan, on which the Banderas' character is based, is also known as one of the first authors to describe the life of the early Slavs, which makes the attitude to the film even more positive.

* ShrugOfGod: Michael Crichton annotated the original book with scholarly references (as he did with many of his books), but not all of them were real. He also admitted that he didn't remember which ones were real or not and sometimes spent hours chasing down information that he actually made up.

* SugarWiki/HeReallyCanAct: The Hispanic Creator/AntonioBanderas, who is known for his roles as hot Mexican guys, plays an intelligent medieval Arab? Well, he is so awesome in this role that almost no one doubted his "Arab" background.
