Both were YMMV tropes.
* BigotvsBigot: Joe is a StrawPolitical, Gavin is a DesignatedHero.
to:
* BigotvsBigot: BigotVsBigot: Joe is a StrawPolitical, Gavin is a DesignatedHero.

* CryfortheDevil: Despite the fact that the movie intended to portray Joe as AlwaysChaoticEvil, it is hard not to feel a little bad for the guy. Being cheated on is a bad feeling, especially not when you rescued your wife from hardship and the person she cheated on you with was someone she just met.

* DesignatedHero: The movie try's to portray Gavin as heroic, but he just comes off as a bigot who purposely breaks apart a marriage and drives Joe to insanity. See DisproportionateRetribution below.

* TakeThat: The opening shot shows a cross with a polluting oil refinery in the background... gee [[FauxSymbolism I wonder what it could possibly mean?]]. Bonus points for revealing that Joe works in said refinery.
