** It's never specifically said that The Three Wise Men ARE corrupt. It might be assumed as such since they are so cynical and jaded, but the lawyer, whom Alonzo says will "snatch [Hoyt's] nuts out and use them for dice" if he screws up, seems genuinely worried that Alonzo won't survive his deadline with the Russians, and the long-faced older cop feels the need to reiterate what Alonzo already knows: the Russians will whack him, regardless of his status as a well-respected cop or not. Even Harris Yulin's character, the cigar-smoking detective who says he's gonna find the subject of his story and kill him, can't be written off entirely, because cops can be said to '''talk''' about all the stuff they'd like to do to various perps they know will get off but will never actually '''do.'''

* AlternateCharacterInterpretation: [[Did Alonzo set Hoyt up with Smiley knowing that Smiley would find the wallet and spare him or was he actually setting him up to die?]] His dialogue in the initial scene with Letty implies the former but it's never solidly confirmed. Much of Alonzo's motivations and how much he's actually planned things up is very ambiguous.

* ConsolationAward: Many thought Denzel won Best Actor to compensate many lauded but not awarded performances that preceded. Specially for a [[RussellCrowe fierce]] [[Film/ABeautifulMind competitor]] that year (and ironically both actors faced off against each other in ''Film/{{Virtuosity}}'').

* HilariousInHindsight: In this movie directed by Antoine Fuqua, Denzel Washington's character is in debt with the Russian mafia. Come 2014, Fuqua directs ''[[Film/TheEqualizer The Equalizer]]'', with Washington playing the main character who fights the Russian mafia!

** A man screaming "Film/KingKong ain't got '''shit''' on '''me'''!" should make you laugh your ass off. It instead is one of the most dramatic moments of the film.
** When Alonzo yells: "I'M SURGICAL WITH THIS BITCH [[spoiler: JAKE!!!!"]]
