* DesignatedHero: [spoiler: Seriously, in many other movies, Dylan would be the villain, and the Horsemen his pawns. In this movie...that's still sort of the case. There just isn't any hero character to stop him. At least one trick -- the car chase -- could easily have gotten a ''lot'' of innocent people killed.]]

* AwesomeEgo: You could make a case of this for most of the characters, particularly the Four Horsemen and Bradley. They're all arrogant blowhards, but the former are so [[MagnificentBastard magnificent]] with the heists and tricks they pull off, and the latter with how he is able to brilliantly dissect their heists better than the law could ever hope, that it's easy to see why. [[spoiler:Then it turns that Bradley is not quite as slick as he thinks, while Dylan Rhodes is the most awesome one of all.]]

* {{Narm}}: It only become apparent on replays, but the final scene between Dylan and Bradley may become a lot sillier when you realise that [[spoiler: as Bradley is desperately trying to work out the Horsemen's trick to save himself from life imprisonment (while standing with his back to Dylan), Dylan is squeezing himself between the cell's bars in order to make his big reveal as the Fifth Horseman]]

* VillainSue: [[spoiler: Rhodes]] put together the entire plot, created and funded all of the Four Horsemen's tricks, masterminded all of their crimes, frames Bradley, implicitly leaves him to die in an abandoned prison, ''brags about it'' and walks away scott free. The only person who could expose him is his love interest, so of course she doesn't.

Added DiffLines:

** [[spoiler: The sequel makes it clear that his ego is ''very much'' justified, seeing as he hid being the BigGood for so long. It's also likely an act, seeing as he's very humble when he reveals himself to Rhodes.]]

** [[spoiler: Even Tressler Insurance and the company that made the safe are arguably in the clear. The former refused to pay money out because the guy in question...performed an extremely dangerous magic trick that predictably got him killed- granted, not his family's fault, but insurance isn't meant to cover nigh-suicidal behaviour; with the latter the worst they did was cut corners and use sub-par materials, but once again, you are not ''supposed'' to lock yourself in safes in the first place, and they are ''designed'' to not be opened easily.]]

* DesignatedVillain: Probably an issue that bothers many people who have seen the film. [[spoiler:Thaddeus Bradley did nothing illegal and nothing more immoral than expose Lionel Shrike's magic tricks. Of all the people responsible for Shrike's death and his family never receiving the life insurance they were owed, he's arguably the least responsible, yet undeniably gets punished the worst for it.]]
