* SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic: Particularly "Just Dropped In" by Kenny Rogers and "Short Change Hero" by Music/TheHeavy.
* BadassDecay: Killer starts out relatively cool and intimidating but by the end confrontation, he's nothing more than a whining ManChild who wants Driver to acknowledge his "skills."
* BillingDisplacement: Creator/TomBerenger is listed in the credits before Oliver Jackson-Cohen (Killer) or Creator/CarlaGugino (Cicero). He's in the movie for maybe three minutes as Driver's prison warden.
* FridgeBrilliance: [[spoiler:A few times throughout the movie, Cicero would make a revelation about the unraveling plot, to which Cop would reply with a lukewarm "Yeah, maybe." After seeing the entire movie, you realize that he knew those things and was discouraging her from looking further into it and discovering him.]]
