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.
YMMV: Inside Man
Anvilicious: Vikram's rant about how he is constantly held in suspicion because he looks like he might be an Arab (he is actually a Sikh,) in the post-9/11 world is anything but subtle. Granted, it's a fair point, but he says all this while he is being questioned (politely and respectfully) by two police officers who are trying to get information that could save people's lives, and he seems to care more about bemoaning his unfair treatment at the hands of other people than cooperating with them, making him come across rather unsympathetically.
Magnificent Bastard — Dalton Russel (Clive Owen). He's literally planned for everything, has contingencies in place, expertly manipulates both the situation and the people involved, and gets away scott free. Madeleine White is heavily implied to be one as well. When the mayor of NYC calls her a "magnificent cunt", she answers "Thank you". While she seems to be playing for the bad guys, in the end it's clear she does her own thing. The biggest problem with classifying her may well be that we don't see enough of her, and she never really demonstrates any Chessmaster ability.
