* PlayingAgainstType: Creator/JasonStatham as Ethan, the chief villain [[spoiler:(actually the DragonInChief)]].
* RecycledScript: Had ''Film/PhoneBooth'' not spent 40 years in DevelopmentHell (and two and a half years on the shelf after being completed), this film probably would have never happened.
* TechnologyMarchesOn: Ryan talking about how awesome his cell phone is because it can take pictures and record feels silly now when almost every cell phone made does both.
