Tropes for the man:

  • Creator Thumbprint: References to Finland, his home country. These range from prominent ones (like the parachute with a Finnish flag on it in Cliffhanger) to blink-and-miss-it examples (like a bottle of Finlandia brand vodka in The Long Kiss Goddnight and Deep Blue Sea).
  • Hate Sink: Unlike most films where this trope and Big Bad are kept separate, Harlin makes the villains also this due to their attitudes and actions, a good example would be the most loathsome group of terrorists in Cliffhanger.
