- Big Lipped Alligator Moment: Two of them. One is a very moving monologue involving JCVD taking a moment to speak to God, which may or may not have been in his head (though JCVD's chair rising up to the ceiling probably was). The other sees the least likable robber speaking less and less coherently right after being shot in the forehead. While not completely impossible to happen according to some interesting cases in neurology's history, it looks just plain bizarre and adds nothing to the film's course.
