In a future world devastated by disease, a convict is sent back in time to gather information about the man-made virus that wiped out most of the human population on the planet.
Throughout the movie, actual monkeys appear on camera, from the "monkey and a roast beef sandwich" to zoo animals. Some people suggest 12 different monkeys appear in the film.
Jose - psst! Jose, what's going on?
Jose: Bad news, man
James Cole: Volunteers?
Jose: Yeah. And they said your name.
Jose: Hey, maybe they'll give you a pardon, man.
James Cole: Yeah, that's why none of the volunteers come back. They all get a pardon.
When Cole runs after Dr. Peters in the airport, he is not wearing sunglasses before or when he is shot, but when Kathryn kneels down beside him, he is briefly seen wearing a pair of dulled, brown glasses.
The symbol of the 12 Monkeys provides the backdrop for the opening and closing credits.
