These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
Broken Aesop: The film apparently tries to convey the message that being peaceful is the best way to handle things, and the protagonist refuses to fight anyone...but he has no problem antagonizing bullies, and ultimately he teams up with a group of violent thugs.
Speaking of such, the final race was to get the 'Preps' to stop treating people like they're better then them. To do so, he teams up with the school bullies, ones who treat the preps just as badly.
