* BigLippedAlligatorMoment: Just before the final battle (and the infamous car crash), a man in a cowboy hat and a speedo appears, takes off his speedo and jumps into a heated open-air bathtub (which is literally just an old bathtub propped over an open flame). The scene then changes to Jimmy driving and shooting at the Drug Lord bodyguards before crashing his car. After the crash and the ensuing explosion, the naked cowboy jumps out of his bathtub and runs off screen. His sudden presence in the film is never explained and he is never seen again. Bizarrely enough, he's ''credited'' for the role.
* CultClassic: It's got a fairly strong following among Irish viewers for being Ireland's [[OverlyNarrowSuperlative greatest martial arts movie]] and among moviegoers with a BileFascination.
* HilariousInHindsight: A member of Boyzone appearing in an Irish production about a drug gang? Are we talking about ''Fatal Deviation'' or ''Series/LoveHate''?
* MartyStu - Jimmy. He doesn't even bother to change the name of his protagonist from his own.
* {{Narm}} - "Fuck you and your gun, ya prick!"
** After Nicola's capture by the bad guys, Jimmy has a {{Flashback}} to his memories of her. In the middle of the generic picnic/lovemaking memories, one scene is of him driving a motorbike and firing a handgun, while Nicola clings to his back in fear.
** "You made me look bad. And that's not good."
** "But what about Nicola?!"
** To say nothing of the soundtrack.
** In one scene, two {{Mook}}s are cutting up cocaine with a Dunnes Stores Value Club Card.
* SoBadItsGood: This film combines [[DullSurprise poor acting]] with [[{{Narm}} ridiculous dialogue]] wrapped up in a hilarious ExcusePlot with a side order of SpecialEffectsFailure. The result is priceless.
* SpecialEffectsFailure: It's glaringly obvious where muzzle flashes have been added in post-production.
** The explosion from the car crash looks fairly tacked on too.
* TookTheBadFilmSeriously: Mikey, being played by the biggest name cast member, is the only one who looks like he's capable of acting in any way shape or form. [[EnsembleDarkhorse He's probably the most memorable character in the film]].
