* WriteBackToTheFuture: As Cole prepares to travel from the future, he is given the telephone number of an answering machine whose tape was found in archaeological research; the whole end-of-the-world problem ensured the tape was not erased for reuse (say that ten times fast).

* All just a dream: probably not, but possible. There are some hints. 1. James believes he may be delusional and his lack of social skills and ability to remember minute details are evidence. Likewise we get no explanation as to where the voice he hears is coming from and why people from his present keep showing up at random times. 2. There are a lot of similarities between the present prison and the past hospital. Most notably the guards and panel of doctors from each timeline. Plus the time machine is strikingly similar to the CT Scanner the camera focuses on for longer than seems necessary. 3. We never get any explanation as to how the few remaining survivors, who have no immunity to the virus, managed to build an intricate underground city and have the capability of building a time machine but have no apparent source of food, water, or even breathable air.

* Society Marches On: the 1997 airport security was accurate. Today he never would've gotten the vials past them. Likewise in a post 9/11 and PATRIOT act world a virologist with top level clearance suddenly taking an around the world trip, to many of the world's major ports, would've raised flags to the FBI, homeland security, and numerous other agencies.

* RapeAsBackstory: The prison board briefly lists Cole's criminal record, which includes "antisocial sex." It's not elaborated upon, but he has violent episodes throughout the movie. While there's never any sign he intends to rape anyone,

Added DiffLines:
* ReluctantPsycho: Cole's generally relatively calm, if confused, but he has some violent outbursts that suggest that he might be a prisoner for good reason.

* DuelingStarsMovie: Creator/BruceWillis vs. Creator/BradPitt. This might be more of a retroactive example, as Pitt (while having found recent acknowledgements for his roles in ''Film/InterviewWithTheVampire'' and ''Film/{{Se7en}}'' ), wasn't nearly as big a star as Bruce "''Film/DieHard''" Willis at the time of the film's release.
