Added DiffLines:

* ReReleaseSoundtrack: There are two different soundtracks for the film. Mostly they're the same but two moments have discrepancies:
** The action sequence with the gun-firing clowns. In the theatrical cut, it's accompanied by a traditional orchestral score. In the TV edit, it's replaced by demented circus music, which arguably makes the scene much funnier.
** When Jake goes to a house and beats up a criminal (to which Reno gets the credit), the theatrical cut is accompanied by an orchestral piece. The TV edit replaces it with a country/rock piece.


* EsotericHappyEnding: Yes, the terrorists were ultimately thwarted, and yes, the religious leaders were saved, but the unity rally was still cancelled due to the terrorists (so they kinda got what they wanted), and some people (including cops) were still gunned down in the process.

It uses pretty much every cop cliche in the book. See also ''Series/WalkerTexasRanger'' for a similar Chuck Norris vehicle. See also ''K-9'' and ''Film/TurnerAndHooch''.

* VisionaryVillain: The villain, Nelson, has a very clear goal in mind: He wants to unite all sorts of hate groups with one attack in order to spread his neo-Nazi agenda all over the world.
--> '''Nelson''': In a ''single blow'', we can initiate the movement which will sanitize this country for ''generations''! We ''must'' succeed. We ''will'' succeed!

Added DiffLines:

* {{Montages}}: Matthew and Reno at a fair. Also counts as [[{{Filler}} filler]], since it doesn't advance the story.
