* Let's start off with the intro shall we? An amnesiac man wakes up in the desert with a fancy wrist band and no clue how he got there. [[BountyHunter Bounty hunters]] come along and order him to start walkin'. The man [[CurbStompBattle ends all of them without a problem]] and leaves. {{Badass}} doesn't begin to cover that.

* Jake, ArmCannon, alien fighter. No contest. That look he gives to Dolerhyde was icing on the {{Badass}} cake.

Added DiffLines:

** Even more so in that it's played as a straight Western, which influenced Creator/RogerEbert and others to wish aliens weren't involved.

Added DiffLines:

* On a meta level, the co-starring of both Creator/DanielCraig and Creator/HarrisonFord in the same movie. It's easy to wonder how the movie doesn't explode from the sheer awesomeness of it all.

** What makes it ''really'' cool is the fact that just before the battle, Dolerhyde started yelling at the Cheif that a spear would be totally useless against the aliens. Needless to say, the irony was not lost on Mr. Dolerhyde.

Added DiffLines:

* Jake's recruiting his old gang, "call to arms" style.
--> '''Jake''': You got a choice. You can drink your last few hours away on a beach, ''which by the way is not a bad idea''. Or, you could follow me one last time.

* Two words: dynamite knife.


* Dolerhyde and Jake's second altercation after the aliens arrive, they begin arguing and Dolerhyde hits Jake in the stomach with the back of his rifle. Only for Jake to no sell it and punch Dolerhyde in the jaw, which Dolerhyde also no sells. Awesome.
