* MoralEventHorizon: The Organization crosses this during the Ritual, setting up innocent people to die horribly (even if [[WellIntentionedExtremist it is for a reason]]). [[spoiler:Some also feel Marty and Dana effectively cross this by letting all of humanity die.On the other hand they do this by refusing to kill Marty which is at worst MurderByInaction and they just don't see a point in sacrifice if humanity has to keep on surviving by crossing the horizon]].

** Marty. As "the fool," he gets most of the funniest lines, is the only one who figures out the Controllers' game, and turns into the hero in the third act. It's somewhat awesome that the guy who's half-baked into Narnia is the only guy who's actually GenreSavvy.

* ItWasHisSled: Oh so wonderfully averted. People who have seen the film, especially fandom members and reviewers, are *very* careful to not ever spoil the film for people new to it.
