This film provides examples of:
- Chewing the Scenery: The last scene is when everyone just starts not only chewing the scenery but devouring it.
- The Film of the Book: Sadly, an example of What Could Have Been.
- Man on Fire: Toshiaki in the final scenes, although it becomes unintentionally hilarious as the actor can't match his reactions to the CGI fire consuming him. At all.
