- Complete Monster: Curtis Freley is a trigger-happy sociopath who constantly goes around killing other people mainly for his own amusement. He kills a drug dealer and undercover cop at the beginning of the movie before murdering more police officers in the ensuing shootout. He attempts to kill a few civilians, only stopping because Raymond convinces him not to, and he even murders Tony Vago and several of his men to satisfy his own need for revenge, sealing the tragic fates of the main characters in the end. His pettiest crime is killing an innocent man who was previously wounded by Gordon in a fight, and then gleefully watching as Gordon has an emotional breakdown, thinking that he really killed the man. In the end, Curtis is just a thug who uses the slightest opportunity to murder someone for his own entertainment, and he constantly tries to excuse his behavior by blaming the victims or saying it was necessary.
- Jerkass Woobie: Raymond Lembecke. Although a criminal and thief, all he wants to do is live his life in peace with Addy and run away from all his troubles. It's hard not to sympathize with him in the end when Addy is killed right next to him, on the same day he found out she was pregnant.
- Squick: While we don't see Sir cutting off Wayne's fingers, we do hear him committing the act at one point.
