* PlotInducedStupidity: Yeah Jack, chase after the stranger in the hockey mask. Can't possibly see that ending badly. He and the audience don't see the guy's mask until he turns around. Jack just thought it was some trash-talking punk.

* ActorAllusion : It could be a coincidence, but after the car chase, one of the "targets" calls out [[Film/BoogieNights "Who sent you?"]]



* PlotInducedStupidity / WhatAnIdiot: Yeah Jack, chase after the stranger in the hockey mask. Can't possibly see that ending badly...
** He and the audience don't see the guy's mask until he turns around. Jack just thought it was some trash-talking punk.
* TheWoobie: Jack is much more this trope than his brothers. He is not impulsive nor malicious, just seems to follow the steps of his brothers, and is likely to have been a good person if it were not for his childhood or life on the street. In addition, he is much more calm and sensitive than his older brothers, and it's implied that Jack had experienced a very traumatic childhood before Evelyn adopted him. And even worse, the discussions between his brothers often seem to make him uncomfortable. He's also constantly mocked in some deleted scenes.
** Not to mention that he's the only character in the main cast who suffers a tragic death.

* AlternativeCharacterInterpretation: The four brothers. They were actually the result of all that lived in the streets as thugs (including death's mother)? Or really are NotSoDifferent to the antagonists? This can be justified by the fact that they [[EvilVersusEvil all lead a life of crime and literally kill for them is as normal as breathing.]]
* FridgeLogic: [[spoiler: the bar where Fowler shot Lt. Green is full of people. One of them should have been able to see them get in a disagreement and then heard the gun shots afterward. The biggest problem is that Lt. Green walked up to his police car to leave and Fowler shot him right next to it so shouldn't there be a security feed of him killing his own partner?]]

* JerkassWoobie: All of the Mercer brothers have had tough lives, but it can be inferred that these guys were only kind to their mother.
* RetroactiveRecognition : Sofia Vergara pre-Series/ModernFamily.
* TearJerker: Hard boiled Bobby crying alone in the bathroom after seeing his mother's room.
** [[spoiler:Jack's Death. Jack is shot at first only in the chest but as he's trying to get away a {{Mook}} shoots him again. It's not clear how many times. Still, he falls to the ground screaming in pain and for his brothers, Bobby in particular and you can hear him over the gunfire. The entire fight becomes a desperate attempt to get to him only for him to die minutes later. Everyone breaks down. To drive the point home, after Jack's funeral Bobby looks up at the pictures on the wall, Jack's picture has a bullet hole through it.]]
