Added DiffLines:

* NonViolentInitialConfrontation: The first time Walker and [[BigBad Senator McComb]] meet, Walker's boss is showing the later the TEC's installations, so naturally there is no physical confrontation. There is a SnarkToSnarkCombat, though.

* NoOshaCompliance: A large number of clearly marked flammable barrels are ignited, yet no audible smoke or fire alarms go off. When emergency serives arrives, it's the police with guns drawn, not the fire department.

* TechnologyMarchesOn: When he's back in the 1920s, Max's ex-partner -- who comes from the early years of the twenty-first century -- listens to a portable music player. However, since the movie was made in 1994, it's a CD Walkman. Apparently, he never got around to updating to an iPod.

* AnachronismStew: Played for full effect in the opening scene where five Confederate cavalrymen guarding a gold wagon [[spoiler:are massacred by a single man, when he suddenly produces two laser-sighted TEC-9 submachine guns from under his coat.]]

* FutureMeScaresMe: The villain of the second movie scares his past self. So much that he may change his future.



** The second movie begins with the villain attempting to kill Hitler.



* KarmicDeath: The criminal buying Wall Street stock makes a joke about a stockbroker who threw himself out the window just before he arrived. After being caught and sentenced to death, he's sent back in time to Wall Street -- in mid-air, several hundred feet up.

** It is in a shiny futuristic silver case. Maybe it's tightly compressed making it a much larger amount of C4 than would normally be contained in it.



* NeverTheSelvesShallMeet: The rule is that "two instances of the same matter cannot occupy the same space". So if lets say two different time-displaced counterparts of the same person (such as a Past Self and Future Self) ''do'' meet (or more specifically, touch), they end up canceling each other out. By that we mean [[spoiler:they fuse into a giant gushing fluid mass of body parts that dissolves out of existence in a matter of seconds]].
** Its a blatant violation of the laws of conservation of mass and energy, but hey, [[TimeCrash it could be worse]].
** In the sequel, however, this does not cause the person in question to melt out of existence, but results in them fusing into straight-up BodyHorror.

* TemporalParadox: Averted, changing the past makes a new present, but doesn't change you, thus if you went back and time and killed your father, you'd come back to find that you never existed, but you'd be fine.
** You can still receive new scars from injuries suffered by your younger self, though, as [=McComb=] learned when his younger self suffered a nasty cut on his cheek.

** The sequel uses a different method which can cause the time traveler to disintegrate upon departure, which is increasingly more probable if the same person goes through it repeatedly within a short period of time (from his/her point of view).



** The sequel plays with time travel much more than the first one. In the end, it is implied [[spoiler: that all the preceding events of the movie never happened because the villain accidentally changed his own past]].
This list shows the last 10 events of 54. Show all.
