- Moral Event Horizon: Near the end, Richie and Blackbird are about to leave Richie's Woobieish girlfriend Donna's home to settle the score with Carmen and Wayne, the husband and wife they were pursuing for most of the movie. Donna fell in love with the dangerous but kind Blackbird while the violent Richie just used and abused her. Realizing this, Richie stops the car and walks back inside to murder Donna in a jealous rage as Blackbird stares blankly ahead with a broken expression on his face. It's so pointlessly cruel that the author/filmmakers were clearly trying to make Richie irredeemable in the audience's eyes compared to the more sympathetic Blackbird, who's so pissed off that he finally murders Richie himself later on.
