* AdaptationNameChange - Done in such a way that the names are still recognizable if you're familiar with the original play. (Othello is Odin, Iago is Hugo, etc.)
* AxesAtSchool - Not exactly but close enough that it made people uncomfortable.
* BookEnds - Hugo's speech about hawks opens and closes the film.
* ButtMonkey - Roger.
* TheChessmaster - Hugo.
* DrivenToSuicide - Odin.
* DrugsAreBad - Hugo is addicted to steroids.
* ForTheEvulz - Downplayed from the original play in which Iago's motivations were far more ambiguous and shifted often. Here Hugo's jealousy seems more genuine on account of his father paying more attention to Odin.

* PragmaticAdaptation - All things considered it's a fairly faithful adaptation of the original play. It's a testament to Shakespeare how well it still holds up.

* BillingDisplacement - [[Series/TorchwoodMiracleDay Mekhi Phifer]] is given less prominence in much of the promotional materials than Josh Hartnett and Julia Stiles; [[http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0184791/ the poster]] has him tiny at the bottom while Hartnett and Stiles are two [[FloatingHeadSyndrome floating heads]] looming above him.
** Of course, it can be argued that Hugo is the main character, making it a more justifiable example of this trope.

* {{Questionable Consent}}: Desi and Oden's first sexual encounter starts off normally. But when he hallucinates an image of Michael having sex with her in the mirror, out of rage and jealous, he gets rougher, prompting her to cry out and beg him to stop. He doesn't.
