* OurAncestorsAreSuperheroes: The ancient Xiox civilization, which the cultists are descended from (and which Rowsdower is only a halfbreed descendant of.) Before being cursed by their gods, the Xiox had the power to make floating cities and, if [[BigBad Sartorus]] is any indication, at least some of them had psychic powers as well.

** In the final fight with Satoris, which takes place at a random spot in the middle of a forest, there not only just happens to be a grappling hook on the ground for the heroes to pick up and use, but also a loaded rifle.

* ContrivedCoincidence: The entire plot is pretty much a long string of these.
** So 7 years after killing Troy's father, the cult just happened to find out where Troy lives and decided to storm his house right around the time when Troy looked through his father's old notes and found the map to the Ziox ruins?


Added DiffLines:

** Basically everything Troy and Zap need to find, including the final objective, is within a very short driving distance away from Troy's house.
** While on the run from the cult, Troy and Zap just randomly discover a cabin belonging to Thomas [=McGreggor=]'s old acheology partner, Mike Pipper.

Contrast with the films of Creator/DavidCronenberg and Creator/AtomEgoyan, both of whom make ''good'' Canadian movies.

* EightiesHair: Zap Rowsdower's mullet. Satoris [[http://i48.photobucket.com/albums/f226/SpukiKitty/PICS%20for%20Web%20Forums/satoris2_zps6455a29e.png had one]] at the start of the film as well, before trading it in for [[http://i48.photobucket.com/albums/f226/SpukiKitty/PICS%20for%20Web%20Forums/satoris3_zpsdf421c39.png a slick feather job.]]

* {{Foreshadowing}}: A visual one. One concerning Rowsdower's past. In the very first shot of the film the mook on the left applies his red mask...it's [[http://i48.photobucket.com/albums/f226/SpukiKitty/PICS%20for%20Web%20Forums/tfs_zps1ae49034.png definitely Rowsdower!]] His wrists are [[CallForward even bandaged]] from the ordeal later shown in the [[CatapultNightmare nightmare scene.]] This would be easy to miss since the viewer's eye would be naturally focused on Satoris & the campfire to notice.
