* SoundtrackDissonance: Although there's eerie music percolating much of the film, the disturbing scene in which Pope is staring at Nicky has Air Supply's ''I'm All Out of Love'' playing on the TV, and a long, dirge-like drone played over the top of it.

* GreyAndGrayMorality: Joshua seems to have been a crook before he started living with the rest of the Cody clan. The Codys aren't violent until the police execute one of their close friends. Many of the cops are either corrupt or cowardly.

Many of the cops are either corrupt or cowardly. Det. Leckie might be the only morally "white" character in the film, and even he's tinged a little grey (his objective after all being to turn Josh against his own family).

-> "Things survive because they're strong, and everything reaches an understanding. But not everything survives because it's strong. Some creatures are weak, but they survive because they're being protected by the strong for one reason or another. You may think that, because of the circles you move in or whatever, that you're one of the strong creatures, but you're not, you're one of the weak ones. That's nothing against you, you're just... you're just weak because you're young. But you've survived because you've been protected by the strong."
-->'''Leckie''', talking to Joshua

''Animal Kingdom'' is an Australian movie from 2010 set in modern-era Melbourne, detailing the life of the Cody family, a bunch of reasonably successful crooks. Following the death of his mother from a heroin overdose, Joshua Cody is taken under his grandmothers' wings and is introduced to a life of crime by his uncles. However, a corrupt police squad who tackle armed robberies are out for blood and start gunning for members of the Cody family which serves to merely accelerate their self-destruction.

Added DiffLines:

* KarmaHoudini: Janine may qualify since [[spoiler: she survives through the film and successfully corrupts her grandson Joshua. Possibly subverted in that her two oldest sons were killed, but it seems that she understandably wasn't all that fond of Pope, and treated Craig more as a household pet than a son.]] On the other hand, she does seem genuinely devastated by [[spoiler: Darren's catatonic, traumatized state after [[NoodleIncident unspecified events]] during his stint in prison.]]
