* BehindTheBlack: In the climax, John Preston walks into a small circular room with numerous pillars. After a brief conversation with the bad guy on the opposite side of the room, they cut to a shot standing in front of the door, while bad guys step out from behind the pillars. The problem, is that they were on the same side of the pillars as Preston. Some even walk all the way around the pillar just to make for a better reveal, rather than just moving straight for their target. Of course, it's possible he actually saw them, [[{{Badass}} he just didn't care.]]

I have spread my dreams under your feet;\\
Tread softly because you tread on my dreams.''

* TheCobblersChildrenHaveNoShoes: The Tetragrammaton Clerics are tasked with rooting out and apprehending or killing Sense Offenders. Preston, stated as being one of the best Clerics, fails to realize that [[spoiler: his entire family, both partners, and his boss are all Sense Offenders]]. It's clear that his reputation is based on A) his combat skills, and B) his contraband-sniffing skills, rather than his ability to '''actually find the people he's supposed to be hunting'''.

Though it could also be that he is better at spotting sense offending in strangers.

* {{Dystopia}}: Libria is basically ''1984'' [[XMeetsY with Kung Fu]]. Emotion is {{Thoughtcrime}}, all citizens are required to take psychiatric medication to suppress it, and if people resist then the State employs elite supersoldiers to annihilate all the thought-criminals.
