  • Anvilicious -- The main human ship is called the ark, and the smaller ships are shaped like crosses. Subtle.
    • Considering the Big Bad quotes the bible multiple times in the movie, I think they weren't necessarily going for subtle. And really, the Cross shaped fighters look more like B-Wings than the Traditional Christian Cross.
      • The whole Anti-war/Tolerance message of this film wasn´t very subtle, anyway.
    • Just going along with the "ships-as-crosses" bit, it does feel Anvilicious at the start where the Terrians "give themselves up to the ships." (If you don't get it, just replace the word "ships" on that phrase with the word "cross.")
    • How do you really drive home an anti-war message in the anvilliest way? By having three whole planets blown up in the backstory.
  • What Do You Mean It's Not for Kids? -- How the heck did this get a PG rating with a D-bomb, casual threats of genocide on both ends, and space whale gore?
    • Going further, the film has (human) male nudity (not frontal, but still), several dead (alien) bodies on slabs and hanging in body bags in the worst abattoir like display possible. And to top it off the on-screen deaths by decompression of no less than four people, one of whom was a protagonist's father, and another was Jim.
      • Considering how few people saw it, I doubt the MPAA saw it themselves. Shame though.
