%%* ActionSurvivor: Bower.

to:

%%* * ActionSurvivor: Bower.Nadia was a scientist aboard the ship but she has learned to survive the creatures. Bower becomes one as well through his experiences on the ship.



* TheArk

to:

* TheArkTheArk: The Elysium carries enough people and supplies to start a colony on another planet.



* BraidsOfAction: Manh has his long hair braided. Rather sensibly, the braid is tucked into the back of his clothes preventing ByTheHair.



%%* CruelTwistEnding: The ending, and ''several others''.

to:

%%* * CruelTwistEnding: [[spoiler: Payton is really the older Gallo, and he murdered the crew. The ending, and ''several others''.Elysium has been on Tanis for hundreds of years, stuck underwater. The creatures are actually the descendants of the original crew members, who evolved to adjust to the new situation.]]



%%* DeathBySighOfRelief: [[spoiler:Manh, Leland]]

to:

%%* DeathBySighOfRelief: [[spoiler:Manh, Leland]]* DeathBySighOfRelief:
** [[spoiler: Manh hesitates when confronted with a Hunter child - who then promptly slits his throat while his guard is down]].
** [[spoiler: Leland makes it to the bridge away from the Hunters - only for Payton to stab him in the eye]].



* {{Fanservice}}: Ben Foster, Dennis Quaid and Cam Gigandet each make their first appearances nearly fully naked - the former giving his abs plenty of focus.



%%* HamToHamCombat: Payton VS Gallo.

to:

%%* * HamToHamCombat: Payton VS Gallo.Gallo. Cam Gigandet really hams it up as he yells most of his taunts, and Dennis Quaid more than matches him as it goes on.



%%* HopeSpot

to:

%%* HopeSpot* HopeSpot: The reactor has been fixed and most of the survivors are safe, with Gallo locked in a cryotube for his own good. [[spoiler: Then Payton remembers that ''he'' is really Gallo, and undergoes a FaceHeelTurn]].



%%** Leland.

to:

%%** Leland.** Leland ties Bower, Nadia and Manh up preparing to eat them.



* {{Irony}}: The crew on the Eden ship were all killed when the deranged captain ejected their pods into space. [[spoiler: The same thing happens to the crew of the Elysium - but this sends them to survival, since they're underwater on Tanis]].



%%* JekyllAndHyde: [[spoiler: Payton and Gallo]].

to:

%%* * JekyllAndHyde: [[spoiler: Payton and Gallo]].Gallo. Payton would be the Jekyll persona - the responsible and considerate authority figure. Once Gallo takes over, he fits the Hyde persona to the letter]].



%%* LostColony: The ship.

to:

%%* * LostColony: The ship.ship is a 'Noah's Ark' full of colonists and supplies to start a colony on a new planet. But it's hundreds of years after they were supposed to land on said planet, and no one knows what diverted the mission.



* MeaningfulName: Pandorum = Paranoia+Delirium, along with being a likely nod to PandorasBox.

to:

* MeaningfulName: MeaningfulName:
**
Pandorum = Paranoia+Delirium, along with being a likely nod to PandorasBox.



%%* MindScrew: Things happen, but the work never explains how they are connected. Though there are hints.

to:

%%* ** The character with the last name Sheppard becomes a SacrificalLamb to demonstrate how brutal the Hunters are.
* MessyHair: Nadia's hair is damp and a mess of tangles. Given that she's been awake for around six months, it's likely she's barely had any chances to actually wash.
*
MindScrew: Things happen, but [[spoiler: Gallo tries to convince Bower that the work never explains how they Hunters are connected. Though there just figments of his imagination, brought on by the effects of Pandorum. However it's pretty clear that the creatures are hints.indeed real]].



* NoNameGiven: Creator/AntjeTraue, Cung Le, and Eddie Rouse's characters. The credits reveal their names to be Nadia, Mahn, and Leland.

to:

* NoNameGiven: Creator/AntjeTraue, Cung Le, and Eddie Rouse's characters. The credits reveal their names to be Nadia, Mahn, and Leland. It's entirely possible that Nadia doesn't remember her own name at all.



%%* [[RaceAgainstTheClock Reactor Core Finale]]

to:

%%* [[RaceAgainstTheClock Reactor Core Finale]]* RaceAgainstTheClock: Bower has to reset the reactor before a total power shutdown kills everyone on the ship.



* RealityIsUnrealistic: Some of the criticisms against the movies were this. Some complain that the Hunters looked too much like the Crawlers from TheDescent and accuse the film of being lazy. However, this criticism overlooks the fact that [[spoiler: like the crawlers the hunters are morlocks archetypes, as they evolved to adapt to the dark thus have troglofauna characteristics like pale skin.]]

* RewatchBonus: [[spoiler: [[http://i.imgur.com/2MGbZZQ.jpg The drawings of the Hunter's insane ancestors are shown to be hanging people with her stomach cut open, similar to what their descendants do earlier in the film.]] This implies of that the cannibalism is part of tradation.]]

Added DiffLines:

** You'll notice that Payton automatically knows Gallo is a corporal without him saying anything. Gallo automatically knows everything that Payton does about Bower in their subsequent scenes.
** [[spoiler: Shortly before TheReveal, Gallo angrily addresses Payton as a "corporal" and Payton doesn't correct him]].


Added DiffLines:

* TokenTrio: Bower (white man), Manh (Asian man) and Nadia (white woman) fill the bill. Nadia is also German, to add an extra bit of tokenism.

Added DiffLines:

** The ship's systems are sufficiently advanced to detect hazards such as [[spoiler:a hull breach]], yet it doesn't seem to be able to contain it. [[spoiler:It could've been easily stopped by closing the bridge's windows or closing the bridge's doors.]]

** The trailers and filmmakers make it seem like The Hunters are passengers and crew members turned into [[ArtificialZombie zombies]]. [[spoiler: But they are actually Morlock descedants of human that started a cannibalist culture due to suffering from Pandorum.]]

* MisanthropeSupreme: Gallo rants about how the aspects of human civilization such as law, order, morality are petty concepts which led to overpopulation. That they should create a new world to replace humanity with the ship in a natural state, which is an obvious reference to the tribal Hunters.

Added DiffLines:

** Many doors between the flight deck and the reactor are stuck closed due to the power failures, requiring many detours and the roving bands of mutants don't make it easier. Leland, Nadia, and Bower make it from the reactor to the flight deck within minutes once the power is restored.

Added DiffLines:

Although it was a flop at the box office, the movie, like Film/EventHorizon, has a good cult following.
