* FridgeBrilliance: Since Mr. Blonde had served four years prior to the events depicted in the film, a plausible explanation for his dislike of alarms is that he got caught because of one.

Added DiffLines:

* ChaoticNeutral: Mr White. He's polite, loyal, takes honor very seriously, genuinely cares for his friend Mr. Orange enough to risk incarceration to keep him alive, and dislikes killing civilians. And he has no problem blowing several police officers to hell and torturing bank tellers by cutting off their fingers. And he's the [[BlackAndGrayMorality nicest character in the movie.]] As [[spoiler:Mr. Orange]] found out the hard way, "just because he's a nice guy doesn't mean he won't kill you."

* ShootTheShaggyDog: In the end, not only do the police show up, everyone involved in the heist (besides Mr. Pink) is killed, rendering both the mission of the police (to bring in Joe Cabot and potentially get more information from him in addition to taking him out of the crime syndicate) and the mission of the criminals (to steal the diamonds and get paid) completely moot. All the effort is completely wasted and the whole thing goes down the toilet.

*** Then there's Joe for hiring you in the first place! A [[AxCrazy psychopath]], [[Prison Rape who raped people in prison]], and [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking wears cowboy boots!]]; this heist was doomed even ''without'' TheMole.

** Really, Mr. Blonde? You think it's a good idea to kidnap a cop, [[EarAche torture him]], then try to set him on ''fire'', all while you and the rest of your partners are wanted for a bank robbery that left several people dead, ''THANKS TO YOU''?! If you lit that fire, the movie would have been over already...

* WhatAnIdiot: Mr. White at the ending. Look, Mr. Blonde was a dick and he deserved [[spoiler: to get shot 10 to 12 times by Mr. Orange]], but he's on your team! Shouldn't you be more concerned that a member of your team was killed? Also, Orange said that Blonde tried to make off with the diamonds, [[BadLiar despite Blonde being a loyal friend of the Cabots.]] And then you pull a gun on Joe Cabot despite the overwhelming evidence of Orange [[spoiler: being a rat]].

* For the whole main cast: ''wearing the suits you're about to go rob a bank with in a public diner''! Even Eddie Bunker, a former criminal who played Mr. Blue, say that was something he would've never done.

* TheyCopiedItSoItSucks: ''Reservoir Dogs'' is considered Tarantino's first great work but some people loathe this movie for the similarities between it and ''City of Fire'', even calling it a complete rip-off as Tarantino never credited Lam. Tarantino at first denied he had seen the movie when called out on the similarities [[LyingCreator but then revealed he was actually a big fan - he even had a poster of it in his room]]. Many have lambasted Dogs for [[OlderThanTheyThink not being as original as its fans think]] and there is even an [[http://www.impossiblefunky.com/qt/ Anti-Tarantino webpage]].
