* HePannedItNowHeSucks: [[https://www.rogerebert.com/reviews/the-tribe-2015 Scout Tafoya of RogerEbert.com slammed the film]], arguing that it was empty violence for shock value and that the use of deaf actors was an [[DancingBear exploitative gimmick]], as the characters involved are [[UnfortunateImplications overwhelmingly negative]] and without a positive representation. This caused a backlash from fans of the film, who argued that the film was about disenfranchised youth rather than deaf children, and that the challenging material of the film should not be discounted because it made him uncomfortable. [[note]]For what it's worth, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LSzP9YV3jbc Roger Ebert himself]] argued that characters, regardless of who they are, should be allowed to represent whatever they want without their creators fearing backlash that they're being bad representatives for the rest of their group.[[/note]]

! Tropes related to the film:

* AwardSnub: The film was one of the most-discussed foreign films of 2014 and was expected to be a contender in the Best Foreign Language Film category (where it'd compete with [[Film/{{Ida}} two]] [[Film/Leviathan2014 other]] bleak portraits of life in Eastern Europe). Ukraine ended up submitting ''The Guide'' instead, which was considered safer material but a weaker and little-known film, a surprise decision that drew considerable criticism from those who argued that ''The Tribe'' would have been a better submission, especially after ''The Guide'' ended up missing the nomination.
* DarknessInducedAudienceApathy: It's hard enough for even interested parties to watch given the level of bleak cynicism and brutal violence that occurs onscreen. Nearly all of the characters seem to be either violent sociopaths or passive accomplices, the teachers are either crooked or ineffective, [[spoiler:and even the protagonist isn't above raping the object of his affection]].
* MoralEventHorizon: Though they do plenty of other terrible deeds throughout the film, [[spoiler:the gang leaders try to sell the girls as sex slaves in Italy and beat Sergey up after he saves Yana.]]

* WhatDoYouMeanItsNotForKids: Some themes over the course of the series clearly went beyond the usual parameters of a pre-teen show, like alcoholism, prostitution, rape, starvation, bulimia, or the clash between different political systems like democracy, dictatorships and anarchy. It took almost a season for parents to complain about the series not being suitable when it started running on ABC3 in Australia, apparently living in a world without adult along with underage sex and teenage pregnancy didn't tip them off. For those wondering the scene that did was [[spoiler: [[RapeAsDrama Top Hat attempting to rape Zandra]] which is the second instance of attempted rape for the record (the first being Lex attempting to rape Zandra; he later MARRIED her.]]

* NoCommunitiesWereHarmed: despite the fact that the producers ''tried'' to pull out all the stops to do the whole CanadaDoesNotExist thing, the obvious New Zealand accents, the vague similarity of the City to real-life Wellington, and the fact that every time they go outside the City, there's invariably an establishing shot of wildlife which... well, clearly isn't British, kind of lets it down somewhat. Also, the tribe which kidnaps Dal and Trudy and attempts to sell them into slavery, has a tent which clearly identifies it as belonging to some community group from Upper Hutt, a satellite city of Wellington.

* CompleteMonster: Top Hat threatened KC with being burnt, tried to rape Zandra and finally set the mall on fire, with the mall rats left inside. Oh and this was in the space of two episodes.

* HeartwarmingMoments: Ryan giving Ebony his $10,000 savings (all his money in the world) in order to save Deel from slavery in S1e28, especially considering that she laughed and burnt it in his face. For someone who hadn't really interacted with Deel beforehand it really seems like a crowning moment of friendship on his behalf. Infact, the riot that breaks out at the 'festival' (this troper can't remember what it was specifically called) breaks into the tearjerker category considering, after all they had been through over the past 28 episodes, The Mallrats are willing to fight to the end for each other, in order to make sure that they're all safe.
