Rather enjoyable British sci-fi/gangster thriller
1 March 2005 | by (Derby, England) – See all my reviews

Timeslip is also known as The Atomic Man, which I shall use for this review and is the title on the VHS copy I have (NTSC).

An assumed dead man is recovered from the Thames with a bullet in his back and a radioactive halo around his body. This man turns out to be a top nuclear scientist and he also has a double who us trying to stop his experiments in artificial tungsten. He isn't dead after all. The radioactivity has caused him to be 7 and a half seconds ahead of everybody else, so he answers questions before there are asked. He double is caught at the end, as are some gangsters also involved in the plot.

This is more a gangster movie than a sci-fi, but that certainly didn't spoil my enjoyment.

The cast includes 1950's sci-fi regular Faith Domergue (This Island Earth, It Came From Beneath the Sea), Gene Nelson, Peter Arne and Leonard Williams.

The Atomic Man is worth checking out. Quite good.

Rating: 3 stars out of 5.
