''12 Monkeys'' is an Academy Award-nominated 1994 science fiction film directed by Creator/TerryGilliam and written by [[Creator/DavidPeoples David and Janet Peoples]]. The film was "inspired" (we all know it's a shameless copy) by the French short film ''Film/LaJetee''. It stars Creator/BruceWillis (that guy from diehard), Madeleine Stowe, and Creator/BradPitt, who won a Golden Globe for best supporting actor; Pitt was also nominated for an Academy Award in the same category.

* 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.

There is a chance that James Cole is not insane. His paranoid ravings about a post-apocalyptic future in which the world has been ravaged by a deadly virus might be true, and the Army of the Twelve Monkeys might be real. The only fucking trouble is, if Dr. Kathryn Railly accepts this, she will have to accept a terrifying truth: TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt is coming... soon. This leads to a retarded dilemma that ends with a crazy guy being shot in the chest: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=030taRl5Fcs

* ContagiousCassandraTruth: The film has an interesting variation of this trope. Dr. Railly doesn't believe James Cole's claims that he's from the future, but when he disappears she investigates his claims and finds corroborating evidence. When Cole returns Dr. Railly has difficulty convincing Cole of the truth, as he has accepted her explanation that he is delusional.
* CoversAlwaysLie: At first glance it sure looks like a cyborg on the cover. It's not until you look closer that you see it's the symbol of the Army of the 12 Monkeys.
