!!This movie provides examples of:
* AffablyEvil: Perrier.
* BlackAndGreyMorality
* BlackComedy
* CloudCuckoolander: Jim. [[spoiler:Although it later turns out his encounter with the Grim Reaper may have actually happened.]]
* ClusterFBomb: Pretty much the entire film counts.
* ColdBloodedTorture: Perrier plans to have his lackeys kill Michael very slowly and painfully. [[spoiler:Thankfully he manages to escape before this can happen.]]
* CrapsackWorld: Played for laughs.
* CycleOfRevenge: A reoccuring theme in the movie. Michael had a falling out with his parents when the [[spoiler: guy he beat up for hurting a woman came back and assault his mother in revenge.]]
* UsefulNotes/{{Dublin}}
* EvenEvilHasStandards: For a gangster evil enough to [[spoiler:kill dogs]] for no reason, Perrier is surprisingly against Discrimination against Gays.
* FakeIrish: Jim Broadbent. Jodie Whittaker might be a semi-example - she uses her own accent so presumably Brenda is meant to be English but no dialogue actually refers to her nationality suggesting the character might have been originally ''written'' as Irish and changed when Whittaker [[NotEvenBotheringWithTheAccent couldn't manage an Irish accent.]]
* {{Gayngster}}: Ivan and Orlando.
* GoryDiscretionShot: [[spoiler: When Perrier is ripped apart by dogs, only quick flashes and shadows are seen.]]
* TheGrimReaper: Jim believes he's been visited by the Reaper, who foretold him of his death. [[spoiler:The Reaper turns out to be the narrator.]]
* HardGay: Ivan and Orlando.
* KarmicDeath: [[spoiler: Perrier is savaged by dogs.]]
* KickTheDog: Perrier [[spoiler:shoots two dogs that are annoying him to remind the audience that he is ''not'' a nice man. It's arguably actually needed as up until then he wasn't much less sympathetic than our heroes.]]
* LastKiss: Michael and Brenda share this before he heads off to rescue his father from Perrier. [[spoiler:Thankfully it didn't take.]]
* {{Narrator}}: An unidentified one. [[spoiler:Until the end when we we find it's Death himself.]]
* NoNameGiven: Liam Cunningham's character is only ever called 'The Mutt', even by himself. This is a nod to real life Irish crooks like 'The Monk' (Gerry Hutch) or 'The General' (Martin Cahill) who were known for their nicknames. [[BigBadWannabe There is a reason the Mutt's name is so unflattering.]]
* NotNamedInOpeningCredits: [[spoiler: Gabriel Bryne is TheGrimReaper]].
* {{Revenge}}: [[spoiler:When Jim is killed, Michael goes ''berserk''.]]
** [[spoiler:In retaliation for Perrier killing the dogs Achilles and Apollo in cold blood, the dogs' owners and their gang set the ''other'' gang members' dogs on him.]]
* RunningGag: The clampers. Sets up a nice BrickJoke after they've finally been PutOnABus. Michael later escapes to the car he's been driving, only to find it clamped (the second car he's had this happen to during the course of the film).
* SpellMyNameWithAThe: The Mutt.
* TechnicalPacifist: Michael can't bring himself to kill Perrier in cold blood. Doesn't stop him from kneecapping one of his mooks though.
* ThirdPersonPerson: The Mutt.
* WoundedGazelleGambit: The woman on the farm tries to order Michael, Brenda and Jim out of her barn when they take shelter there. When they refuse, she calls the police... and claims Michael and co. ''tried to rape her''.
* YourCheatingHeart: Brenda's boyfriend constantly cheats on her and when he dumps her she becomes suicidal. [[spoiler:She eventually gets over him and rejects him when he tries to get back together with her. Then she and Michael steal his car.]]
