YMMV / 3000 Miles to Graceland

  • Big Lipped Alligator Moment: The very first thing in this film is a scene with cartoonishly rendered scorpions having a fight to the death à la Mortal Kombat.
  • Crowning Music of Awesome: The soundtrack contains a lot of hard metal and techno, the standout of which is Filter's "It's Gonna Kill Me," played over the aforementioned Big Lipped Alligator Moment. George S. Clinton's score qualifies as well, most notably Franklin's Requiem.
  • Special Effects Failure: The opening scene with the scorpion fight mentioned above is pretty much the epitome of this trope CG-wise. Or would be, had The Asylum and Syfy not already beaten it to the punch. That said, this film did have a budget, so it's pretty inexcusable. Especially for 2001 standards
    • The fight itself is also interjected with some obviously sped-up footage of Michael's Cadillac.
    • When the scorpion that stings Murphy at the end appears. It looks no better than its brethren.
  • What an Idiot: Just why did Murphy shoot Zane in the chest the second time he did, knowing that he failed the first time?
