* AwesomeMusic: Even if you didn't care for the movie, you have to admit that Jerry Goldsmith's score is pretty awesome.
* CoolVsAwesome: Well, not quite "versus" (although the TroubledProduction might hint at that...), but ''Michael Crichton'' (i.e. ''JurassicPark'') and ''John [=McTiernan=]'' (of ''Film/DieHard'' fame) working together on a project has to qualify.
* CultClassic: Although the film was panned by critics and was one of the biggest box office flops of all time, it does have a fair amount of fans who consider it to be a very good action/adventure film.
* EnsembleDarkhorse: Among fans of the film, Herger the Joyful is undoubtably the most popular character.
** Buliwyf as well, the role that launched Vladimir Kulich into great acclaim and recognition,
* ValuesDissonance: Old Norse culture sees the number 13 as a good thing.
