* FakeNationality: Most of the actors, obviously. Nicholas Cage and Jared Leto are clearly [[FakeRussian not Ukrainian]], although they do make an effort at getting the accent right when speaking the language.
* {{Bowdlerise}}: A ridiculous example. General Dmitri was played by a Russian actor, and his voice was dubbed ''in Russian release'' (by a different actor, no less) because it contained a few swear words.
* HeyItsThatGuy:
** [[Film/{{Alien}} Ash]] / [[Film/TheLordOfTheRings Bilbo Baggins]] is an arms dealer.
** [[Series/{{Oz}} Kareem Said]] is an evil dictator.
** [[Film/HarryPotter Draco Malfoy]] is one of the minor gangsters shooting up a store at the beginning.
* RealLifeRelative: The Ukrainian mechanic who is able to quickly disarm a Mi-24 attack helicopter is played by Nicholas Cage's son, Weston. Thus making Yuri's "Get off there, son, before you hurt yourself!" a bit of a meta-reference.
