* CriticalBacklash: The film has a 23% in Website/RottenTomatoes and is badly seen by fans who accuse it of being unoriginal, but Website/InternetMoviesDatabase has it with thrice that score and many reviews which support its entertaining value.
* {{Narm}}: The Bleeders just plain looked silly when they screamed, [[spoiler: except the one at the end, who was much more powerful than his two sons who had just been killed]].
* RelationshipWritingFumble: If the reviews and fan reactions are anything to go by, whatever relationship thirteen year old Cassie and twenty three year old Nick were supposed to have wasn't what the audience saw, given her ClingyJealousGirl behavior once Kira arrives and her short skirt. The worst offender was the hotel scene when Cassie leaves, "powers her use" by getting drunk, then returns to curse out Nick's actual love interest Kira, and falls asleep in a provocative position.
* TheyCopiedItSoItSucks: Often criticized for being a rip off of ''Comicbook/{{X-Men}}'' or ''Series/{{Heroes}}'' due to the notion of paranoia and the government being the enemy.
** The marble scene in the beginning is taken almost directly from a part in Creator/TedDekker's book ''Blink'', a book where the main character can see potential futures. When he's about to be arrested, he rolls a rubber ball down the hall, timing it so that it will bounce off the right walls, causing a distraction so he and his {{Love Interest}} can get away. Could have been a {{Shout Out}} though.
** It's far closer in plot to ''Scanners'' and ''Firestarter''.

* CriticalBacklash: CriticalDissonance: The film has a 23% in Website/RottenTomatoes and is badly seen by fans who accuse it of being unoriginal, but Website/InternetMoviesDatabase Website/IMDb has it with thrice that score and many a lot of reviews which support its entertaining value.
* {{Narm}}: The Bleeders just plain looked look silly when they screamed, [[spoiler: except scream. [[spoiler:Except the one at the end, who was much more powerful than his two sons who had just been killed]].
* RelationshipWritingFumble: TheyCopiedItSoItSucks: As found by critics and audiences alike, he film's main flaw was its heavy borrowing of elements from media like ''Series/{{Heroes}}'', ''Film/{{Scanners}}'' and even ''Comicbook/{{X-Men}}'', which made it to be basically a ClicheStorm of the "regular people with powers" genre.

* {{Narm}}: There are many Youtube comments of people who reportedly laughed at Precious when she was verbally abused by her mother.

* {{Narm}}: There are many Youtube comments of people who reportedly laughed at Precious when she was verbally abused by her mother. Some of this is because Mo'nique is so funny, and WordOfGod on the commentary says they were laughing as they were filming the worst of the abuse scenes.

* FridgeHorror: Plenty.
** Carl has two other kids. God only knows what kind of Hell ''their'' lives must be.
** Mary hears that Carl died of AIDS, but she thinks she can't get it because it only spreads through anal sex. She's wrong, but the fact that she has no reaction suggests that she knew [[DepravedBisexual Carl was having unprotected sex with men.]]



* {{Wangst}}: Largely averted. Though she has very good reason to angst, Precious is usually [[AngstWhatAngst fairly calm]] about her circumstances, only breaking down once during the movie.
