* BreakTheHaughty: Martin Vail is a selfish, jerkass attorney who thinks he's smarter than everyone and takes cases based on profit and fame. [[spoiler: But by the end of the film, he is led to care about a guy (Roy) who was playing him for a fool from the beginning. The final shot of Vail before the ending credits says it all.]]

* FatalFlaw: [[spoiler: Martin Vail's narcissism.]]

** During Roy's first appearance, [[spoiler: he looks at Martin Vail to see if he is buying the split personality act. When it's clear that he is, Roy says: " I got your figured out".]]

** SplitPersonality is actually ''not'' considered a valid insanity defense in most places. It's not even recognized as a mental illness by many psychiatrists (who [[GenreSavvy know that patients can fake it]], consciously or not).

* GreyAndGrayMorality; In spades, and pretty much one of the main topic of the movie. [[spoiler: Aaron really is a complete monster, but he actually had a very strong motive for his murders. Marty behaves like a very regular cynical laywer, and make no mystery of his love for money and fame, but he ends making his idealism and naivety get in the way of his work. Archbishop Rushman abused young homeless by forcing them to have sex in front of him on the menace of put them back on the street, but we learn that he helped a whole neighborhood when Shaughnessy was planning to requalify it and evict anyone in the process.]]

Pretty much only Shaughnessy is a complete asshole, and even if he ultimately had no connection at all with the murders, he indirectly caused it by not exposing Rusham's abuses when he had the chance.]]
