** Krill turning on the bowel sprinklers to drown his imprisoned former crew, to lour Ryback into a trap. And that's if don't count him betraying the crew and murdering the captain as this.

** The final scene of the film is Ryback and the crew in full uniform paying full honors to the captain's flag-draped casket.

* ValuesResonance: Krill calling Ryback a faggot in 1992 was s pretty standard affront to the latter's masculinity. Today it makes Krill into a full-blown PoliticallyIncorrectVillain.

* EnsembleDarkhorse: Jordan. Not just for the FanService, but also for being a GenreSavvy ActionSurvior who [[TookALevelInBadass takes a level in badass]].
* EvilIsCool: William Strannix and Commander Krill, primarily because of Creator/TommyLeeJones and Creator/GaryBusey [[EvilIsHammy hamming it up like beasts]], but also for providing a competent challenge for Ryback.

Leonard Maltin hilariously described them as [[StealthInsult "better villains than the film deserves."]]

* BestKnownForTheFanservice: Quite literally in this case. The scene where Erika Eleniak pops out of a giant cake while topless is one of the most-remembered scenes from the first film.

* GodModeSue: At ''no'' point does it ever look like Ryback is in trouble, and yet it's still remarkably subdued compared to Seagal's usual characters - Ryback is far less respected than the standard Seagal protagonist, for starters. The hostages are supporting cast are usually in a lot more danger, so the movies still manage to have some tension.

* EnsembleDarkhorse: Jordan. Not just for the FanService, but also for getting some of the film's best lines and growing from TheLoad to ActionGirl.

* SpecialEffectsFailure: It's pretty obvious [[spoiler: Strannix's]] body when he is killed is a dummy.

Added DiffLines:

** Krill drowning his crew his both [[MoralEventHorizon despicable]] and [[EvilIsPetty petty]] given that his reasoning is "They never liked me anyway." But the moment is made hilarious when Daumer replies:
--> I bet they fucking love you now, eh?
* EvilIsCool: William Strannix and Commander Krill, primarily because of Creator/TommyLeeJones and Creator/GaryBusey [[EvilIsHammy hamming it up like beasts]], but also for providing a competent challenge for Ryback.
