** Arab villains. ''Full stop''.
** Just about every Arab villain is depicted as a bumbling, cowardly, cartoonishly evil character, who's sole purpose is to die in some horrific over the top fashion. Suffice it to say, director James Cameron was ''not'' sympathetic to their cause.
** The film did receive some criticism for portraying the terrorists as "stereotypically" Muslim. This was 7 years before 9/11. See HarsherInHindsight.

** There's a conversation where the Crimson Jihad boss is said to break off his former group to form a newer, more vicious terrorist organization. It was played as a joke then, but then come 2014, when al-Qaeda's franchise in Iraq and Syria broke off its parent organization and set out to out-jihad it.

** Arab villains. Downplayed in that one of Arnold's colleagues is an intelligent Arab-American, who at least in his scenes qualifies as the OnlySaneMan.

** When asked during an interview whether his wife was bothered by him sitting there watching Jamie Lee Curtis strip, Arnold said that she asked him about it and he assured her "[[BlatantLies Honey, I hated every hour of it]]!"

* HilariousInHindsight: [[spoiler:Before Harry kills Salim by firing a missile at Salim's reinforcements,]] he tells a frightened Salim, "You're fired." Indeed, we might be seeing Creator/ArnoldSchwarzenegger saying that phrase more often once he replaces Creator/DonaldTrump in ''Series/TheApprentice''.
