Symbolism works under the surface to tie the story's external action to its themes. Symbols are concrete objects that are featured in such a way as to represent intangible story elements.

Name some symbols you found in this film. Are they used effectively?

Don't know if this is good enough, but I found it interesting that Harry shot the cop card board cut out during the competition. It sort of said he's going to catch these guys. It's probably not a symbol, just something I thought was interesting.
