Added DiffLines:

* FollowTheLeader: A future dystopia in which society is divided into twelve “time zones”—based on wealth, a young person from the poorest time zone leads a revolt against the system, and the elderly (in actual years) representative of the ruling class coldly explains why such brutality is necessary for his zone’s survival and prosperity. Very similar to ''Literature/TheHungerGames''.

** To be fair, she was looking for adventure, given the fact she spent most of her life in a bodyguard covered dome from her father and lazy, decadent society, and a good looking guy who didn't act like everyone else seemed to be interesting enough. Plus, when she finally meets him in person, the guy made everyone hot in their suits by deliberately risking his life in a poker game just to Troll with her father. DatingWhatDaddyHates is also in effect.

* AlternateCharacterInterpretation: The movie's overt message is anti-capitalist, but they dropped some hints that the real problem is crony capitalism and that the main character's view of the system is simplistic (ie agents of the government physically stop a rich man from paying a ransom directly to a welfare office, because it would give too much Time to the poor). This was arguably an attempt on the part of the writer to be a RuleAbidingRebel, not driving away conservatives.

* UnfortunateImplications: The main villain of the film is an evil financier with the AmbiguouslyJewish surname of Weis. He is actually called a "usurer" in the film. This alludes pretty clearly to some the GreedyJew stereotype.

Added DiffLines:

*** FridgeBrilliance: the fact that certain characters literally don't know how to run is a plot point. It's not surprised they look stupid when forced into it - they've never had to.

* CompleteMonster: Fortis is the leader of the Minutemen. In a world where peoples' lives are measured by their remaining time, quite literally, Fortis leads his group of thugs to terrorize innocent people, and steals their time for himself, despite being rich enough to live quite comfortably on his own. When one of his victims saves up enough time to buy a gun, Fortis shoots him in the back out of nothing but spite even though it wastes the man's remaining time. When hunting for the heroes, Fortis lines up random people and drains them of their time to death until he gets useful information. When he finds them, he demands the hero Will Salas fight him fairly....though even if Will wins, Fortis's men will still kill him. Should he refuse, though, Fortis makes it clear he'll kill him anyways...and then rape and kill his girlfriend Sylvia. While the system in the film is corrupt, Fortis is not part of it. He's nothing more than a sadistic bully whose claims of enjoying 'fair fights' come off as ultimately hollow.
