** From the movie we have Yulya Hanchikova (the blonde female mercenary that was a part of Desmond's group). Although she introduced as little more than another one of Desmond's goons, she actually become quite popular among the fan base thank to her [[MsFanservice character design]] and currently being the most dangerous DarkActionGirl introduced so far.

[[folder:The Movie]]
!!YMMV for the [[Film/PsychoPass movie]]
* AlternativeCharacterInterpretation:
** Is Kougami looking for conflict [[spoiler:as stated by Makishima's ghost]] where he, as the hunter, has to find a prey? Or is he looking for peace which he told to Akane while traveling around and based on his reaction where [[spoiler:after fake!Chairman Han resigned]] he exasperates to a little boy that they won't need to fight anymore?
** As of the movie, the Sibyl System. They can be seen either as WellIntentionedExtremist who provided peace and order to society at the cost of free will or CompleteMonster who used extreme force or deception for the sake of peace and order. In fact, when Akane found out how they got control of [=SEAUn=] through illegal means, they admitted that they have no intention to conquer the region for power but they don't see their actions as criminal. In fact, their end goal is very ambiguous while the likes of Makishima and Kamui have very defined goals .
* AuthorsSavingThrow:
** A lot of viewers were disappointed that Ginoza was DemotedToExtra in Season 2. Fortunately, the movie gave additional scenes for him, [[spoiler:particularly with Shinya]].
** Many people complained about the Sibyl System's portrayal in Season 2 where they're becoming irrational and petty due to Kamui's existance. The movie got them back to their [[WellIntentionedExtremist original portrayal]] and this time, they become more manipulative to the point of playing their opponents like toys.
* BrokenBase:
** While other viewers enjoyed the dynamics between Shinya and Akane which was not present in Season 2, some find that [[SpotlightStealingSquad they're hogging the screentime]] from the other characters such as Mika, Teppei, Hinakawa and Yayoi.
** While viewers find the movie much better than Season 2, they're still dissatisfied on how it handles the societal and political situation because it focused more on the action scenes and had a very disappointing antagonist who is nothing like Makishima or Kamui. Others still enjoyed it and despite its problems, they find that movie finally started giving an overview on the situation outside Japan.
* EsotericHappyEnding: The movie ended with the antagonists dead and with [[spoiler:fake!]]Chairman Han resigning after Akane suggested that the country should have an election where people can have the right to vote someone deserving which could also end the rebellion. However, the Sibyl System remains in control of Japan and in the verge of expanding not only in Southeast Asia but other parts of the world in the future and considering how they managed to control [=SEAUn=] in the first place, they're becoming smarter and more dangerous than ever. [[spoiler:It doesn't help that in TheStinger, fake!Han is reelected which renders Akane's actions moot]].
* HilariousInHindsight: The Japanese government's foreign intervention on [=SEAUn=] is providing the Sibyl System to them to help out with the rebellion. Come July 2015, the Japanese government, under the Abe administration, passed a bill which would allowed their troops to engage in military operations outside the country since UsefulNotes/WorldWarII but this is more in response to the growing threats of North Korea and the territorial disputes with China. Of course, not everyone is happy with the decision most especially those who are victims of Japanese war crimes back in the war.
* IronWoobie: Shinya Kougami. At first, he's a well-respected Inspector until his friend and Enforcer, Sasayama, was brutally murdered. This led him to his demotion and obssession to find his killers which also strained his friendship with Ginoza. [[spoiler:After killing Makishima]], he had to leave Japan along with everything else behind which includes his friends and found himself fighting with LaResistance against the government in an unknown country. Though all of these doesn't stop him to help people whenever he can.
* MagnificentBastard: The Sibyl System itself has [[TookALevelInBadass wised up]] in the movie. Either [[NiceJobFixingItVillain Kamui's actions unknowingly caused]] them to become more dangerous and manipulative or that they just become more GenreSavvy.
* MoralEventHorizon:
** Although Nicholas Wong employs force to end the rebellion [[spoiler:and is revealed to be a latent criminal with a high crime coefficient]], killing the housekeeper who only did what she's told to (drugging Akane's food) so he can remove her brother's collar showed that he's beyond redemption.
** In-universe, Akane found out that the Sibyl System [[spoiler:forced their way into [=SEAUn=] by staging a foreign intervention and conspiring to assassinate the real Chairman Han so they can put his body double in his position instead]] which she regarded as criminal acts.
* {{Narm}}/NarmCharm: Characters speaking GratuitousEnglish can make you cringe and pick your ears while trying to understand what they are saying, particularly on some dramatic scenes. But there are those who are trying a good job at it.
* NauseaFuel:
** What remains of [[spoiler:Nicholas Wong]] after being blown up by Ginoza's Dominator.
** The movie gives [[FridgeHorror a horrible idea]] how it's really like to be [[NightmareFuel blown up]] by the Dominator's Lethal Eliminator mode.
* ParanoiaFuel: In Shamballa if you're a latent criminal and happened to be wearing a collar, chances are that if you're emotionally stressed, the collar would either tranquilized you or inject poison on you in seconds.
* RewatchBonus: Rewatching the scenes where Akane and later, Colonel Wong were talking to Chairman Han made you realize that [[spoiler:the Sibyl System is talking to them and manipulating them]].
* SurprisinglyImprovedSequel: Majority of the viewers agreed that the movie is way better than Season 2 and believed that the plot would have extended more if it's a TV series rather than a movie.
* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodCharacter: Given that this movie is only one hour and 53 minutes, several characters don't get enough moments to shine:
** Mika is a BaseBreaker in Season 2 because of her [[{{Jerkass}} attitude]] and after experiencing the traumatic events in the past season, it's like the movie never made reference of it particularly for her action [[spoiler:which led to Aoi Tsunemori's death]]. And since the movie focused more on Akane's and Shinya's POV, we never get to see if Mika has any character development from those past events regardless that her negative qualities are lessen here.
** With the exception of Ginoza, the other Enforcers are merely just wallpaper who did little significance to the plot.
** Desmond's mercenary gang. You had to admit that they're pretty awesome in taking down a major rebel despite their small number and they're much like the less AxCrazy Expy of [[VideoGame/DeusExHumanRevolution the Tyrants]]. [[spoiler:Too bad the Sibyl System killed them off and you'll only get to know their names in the credits and the promotional materials]].
* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodPlot:
** Considering that majority of the movie spends of its time on the [=SEAUn=], we never get to see what the rest of Unit 1 were doing while Akane is away.
** While the movie tries to probe on the political and societal situation when the Sibyl System controlled the [=SEAUn=], it doesn't have enough time to deal with it since it focused too much on the action scenes.
* ToughActToFollow: Desmond Rutaganda, one of the main antagonists, is a GeniusBruiser who can be Makishima 2.0 to par on Kougami's skill and wit except he exhibits none of the charisma or [[MagnificentBastard intelligence]] that made Makishima a [[DracoInLeatherPants memorable character]]. Of course, he's a merc but also [[spoiler:a pawn of Sibyl]] who hold a VillainBall which made some viewers deemed him as forgettable and generic.
* WhatDoYouMeanItsNotPolitical: Though it's unknown whether it's Urobuchi's intention, but in the climax, the Sibyl System describes that the pre-Shamballa [=SEAUn=] is reeked with "corruption, discrimination and racial strife that was almost religious in nature". Though this is also reflect the current situation in most Southeast Asian countries, this is also somehow applicable to what's happening in the Middle East particularly with the ArabIsraeliConflict and the growing threat from ISIS.
** Corruption, discrimination, and racial strife are par for the course in many Southeast Asian countries. One need only look at Islamic insurgencies in Thailand and the Philippines, and the brutal discrimination many ethnic minorities (especially Chinese minorities) experience in places like Vietnam, Myanmar, and Indonesia.

** Reaction to Season 2 can best be summarized as follows: there are those who consider it [[SoBadItsHorrible an absolute disgrace]], those who find it SoOkayItsAverage (which seems to be the majority opinion), those who think it's good but [[ToughActToFollow just can't live up to the first season]], and lastly, there is a small minority that actually considers it [[SugarWiki/SoCoolItsAwesome better than Season 1]] due to the larger focus on [[ActionizedSequel action]] and strong showcasing of Akane's [[GuileHero deductive abilities]].

Added DiffLines:

* UnintentionallyUnsympathetic: Considering that her best friend was murdered in Season 1, a lot of people expect that this would be Mika's motivation as an Inspector in Season 2. Except that she comes off as KnowNothingKnowItAll and whiner who is jealous of Akane and tries to get her fired. [[spoiler:When that backfired, she was confronted by the Sibyl System who used her information to get Togane kill Akane's grandmother]]. Though her situation in the last episodes is considered to be AlasPoorScrappy, the movie erased all that sympathy and made her more obnoxious to point of keeping Akane in the dark regarding the Sibyl System's true plans and calling her dense for not figuring it out. And due to having less screentime, she seemed to move on [[spoiler:with getting Akane's grandmother killed]] after [[NeverMyFault she denies that none of it is her fault]].
