Added DiffLines:

* EvenEvilHasStandards: Applies to Vinz, because Vinz can be evil. But he respects his mother, and takes "Honor thy mother and father" very seriously, like his friends.

Added DiffLines:

* PayEvilOntoEvil: To quote the "Fresh" trope, some of the villains in this movie are truly nasty human beings. And Vinz desires to give them nasty ends



to:

* AntiHero: Vinz. Although at times, he dangerously borders on villain, given that he seems to enjoy his crimes at times. And he can be a very nasty prick to everyone around him.


* JerkWithaHeartOfGold: As unlikable as Vinz can be, he's very loyal to his friends.

* JerkWithaHeartofGold: As unlikable as Vinz can be, he's very loyal to his friends.


* TheBadGuysAreCops: Played with. All of the police In-Universe are [[BadCopIncompetentCop corrupt, abusive, or just plain useless]], but as Hubert points out, they're not all bad, particularly when contrasted with the neo-Nazi skinheads that the boys also tussle with. Just as [[PayEvilUntoEvil aspirational cop killer]] Vinz is becoming convinced of this, [[spoiler: he's killed by a cop.]] Come to your own conclusions.

To be fair, it's not all cops who are corrupt in this movie. The main corrupt cops are the ones who shot the gang's friend years back, and the small group who interrogates Hubert and Sayid. The rest are mostly just trying to do their job.


* GayMoment: Although jokingly in a rather anti-gay movie. Vinz gives Sayid a cut for a date with his girl, which he hates. To bother him, Vinz asks Sayid to kiss him. Which Sayid tells him off.
