* StockholmSyndrome: Some could argue the hostages in the hospital underwent this, especially due to John's manners [[spoiler: that he didn't kill anyone]] and sympathetic motivations.

* TearJerker: Denzel's powerful performance lends itself to a couple of these, particularly when he finds out about his son's condition.

* ValuesDissonance: To a certain degree, between American and some foreign audiences. To those in countries that have universal healthcare, many of which consider healthcare to be a human right, the American medical system displayed in the movie (and in RealLife) can range from baffling and complicated to downright horrifying.

Added DiffLines:

* DesignatedHero: The audience is supposed to be cheering John on, but he does a lot of very questionably moral things. He takes an entire hospital waiting room hostage, (which leads to a patient almost dying), he makes doctors work on people at gunpoint (the gun may not have been loaded, but the doctors certainly didn't know that), and he essentially steals a heart from someone else, who will then die because they couldn't find a heart. And on top of that, he never questions his actions or feels any regret about what he's doing. Instead he keeps insisting that what he's doing is right, and chews anyone out who doesn't agree with him. Not only did this stunt waste the police's time and the taxpayer's money, but he also endangered the lives of dozens of people [[FridgeHorror and most likely inspired dozens of copycats]], but the audience is not supposed to think about this, because [[ProtagonistCenteredMorality he's the protagonist.]]

* YourMileageMayVary: The critics almost universally panned it and many viewers were apparently put off by the film's constant political maneuvering, but many still praise Denzel Washington's performance and have rated the movie highly despite it's flaws
