- Harsher in Hindsight; Bigelow is killed with a poison that glows in the dark. In 2006, Alexander Litvinenko was murdered by having (non-glowy) radioactive material injected into him. (Law & Order: Criminal Intent combined both the film and the real-life events for their episode "30".)
- Leave The Plot Threads Hanging: The film never does explain how Halliday got involved in the original iridium theft/sale that instigated the film.
- He didn't. He was simply trying to frame Eugene.
- Tearjerker: The entire film especially when it's revealed Bigelow really was just one tenuous loose end - he was killed because he inadvertently and innocently notarized a bill of sale for stolen iridium.
