* AwesomeMoments: Any villain in a Hollywood movie would have the chance to bail at the sign of danger. Cornelius certainly did. But the General stayed and fought to the very end, even when hiding behind a defensive wall.



* FunnyMoments: In one scene, Cornelius, an employee of Stein who was tortured into working for the General, complains about his abdomen. The General replies, "Probably a precious stone perhaps.
