- Hollywood Homely: Lynne, who always has dirt on her face.
- Paranoia Fuel: Enemy ninjas pop out of everywhere, such as a river, a field of snow, out of the floorboards, and dropping out of the sky.
- Strangled by the Red String: Yang and Lynne, especially when the former doesn't seem to visibly share any feelings due to being The Stoic showing Dull Surprise at almost anything.
- They Wasted a Perfectly Good Plot: There was so much potential to have a story where Yang raises a child of an enemy clan, always on the run, in the Old West of all places, but instead they focused on Lynne's less-interesting revenge story with a romance on the side and a fight between Cowboys and Ninja tacked on at the end.
- What The Hell, Casting Agency?:
- Geoffrey Rush as some drunken cowboy?
- For Asian audiences, Ti Lung, one of the few Hongkong actors to share top billing with Chow Yun-fat.
