* ModernStasis: The movie is set in 2069, but aside from advances in genetic engineering, which started the whole thing, progress seems to have ground to a halt. In fact, Dayton seems to have less technology than current times. People rely on payphones, for example.

In fact, Dayton seems to have less technology than current times. People rely on payphones, for example. Justified, as many modern conveniences would probably make time earning easier...and that defeats the purpose of the system currently in place.

Added DiffLines:

** During the chase, Leon is shown to be capable of making risks that none of his fellow Timekeepers are capable of doing such as jumping out of windows.


* AlasPoorVillain: Raymond Leon. Once serene music plays out in five seconds before timing out, you can't help but feel bad for him.

Added DiffLines:

-->'''Female Timekeeper''': What do we do, sir?
-->'''Jaeger''': Go home.

Added DiffLines:

* ZeroPercentApprovalRating: Everyone hates Leon. Once he got an unwanted rescue and attempts to leave, they break off the phone cord and started jeering him on when his partner came to pick him up. [[spoiler:It doesn't help the fact that he was like them]]. Also, his colleagues only carried out his orders because he's the leader of the Timekeepers, so once he times out, none of them continued pursuing Will and Sylvia, not even his partner.

** The idea that you can commoditize lifespan is pure fantasy.
** Aging is not caused by an "aging gene," but rather through a number of factors. Damage is sustained to DNA due to repeated splitting and copying necessary for cellular division, the skin becomes thinner and wrinkled with age mainly due to exposure to ultraviolet radiation, joints wearing out simply due to use over time, and so on.

Added DiffLines:

** The gang leader, Fortis, set one down at the bar.

Added DiffLines:

* RevolversAreJustBetter:
** A Minute Man and a random civilian were seeing holding one when they met. Too bad for the latter, though.
** Another confrontation with Will and some Minute Men had one if them holding one before he died.
