Do not spoiler tag trope names on work pages or the names of works on trope pages; please see Handling Spoilers for more information.

* {{Deconstruction}}: Vigilantism makes everything worse, instead of its usual depiction of fighting wrongs with violence; by the end of the movie, [[spoiler:Luke is the only surviving member of his immediate family.]]

* DownerEnding: [[spoiler:Nick had his wife killed by the Darley gang, and Nick himself dies from his injuries leaving his remaining son in turmoil if he lives long enough.]]

* TheHeroDies: The uncut version shows [[spoiler:Nick himself dying of his injuries at the end.]]

* KillEmAll: [[spoiler:The entire Darley gang and Nick's family dies in the end, save for Luke.]]

* {{Patricide}}: [[spoiler:Billy kills Bones when he learn that his father had been selling weapons to Nick, right behind his back.]] * RealityEnsues: The film does not romanticize vigilantism and vengeance in the least; Nick is an emotional wreck after killing the first gang member and it escalates into [[spoiler:the gang retaliating against his family, killing his wife and putting his other son in a coma. Nick himself dies from wounds from his last stand against the thugs, coming to the realization that after his breaking point, he wound up NotSoDifferent from them after all.]]

Well, cold-blooded revenge killings by nature, isn't impulsive.
* {{Determinator}}: Nick without doubt. Serious injuries? Multiple armed thugs who have the home field advantage? That's not gonna stop him from getting his revenge.
