When Swann goes back in time to 1877 he tangles with outlaws Porter Reese and the Dorsett Brothers. Though not stated in the film, Reese and the Dorsetts were probably Confederate Civil War Veterans. Reese makes the statement about Swann's motorcycle ".. if General Lee had that machine, we'd of won the war." Reese makes another statement denoting a soldier's background when he gets to San Marcos and at gunpoint says to the village priest, Quinn, ".. that I can't have my men being shot." See more »

Well, it was a good idea. They just didn't do a lot with it. A guy on a motorcycle in the desert gets accidentally catapulted back in time by an experiment, and is himself unaware that this has happened.
I liked the people of the 19th Century town, and the chemistry between Lyle Swan (Fred Ward) and the local beauty there (Belinda Bauer) is a plus. Ward's acting is alright, playing the confused dummy lost in the past. However he is undermined by feeble scripting: neither his nor any other character grows or learns anything. The same jokes about futuristic marvels that he shows the astonished people get thin pretty fast, and some of the same dialog, like "Where's my bike?!?" even repeats.
There's only one common thread running through the story that has any meaning as far as the impact of time travel adventure goes, and if you blink, even that will zip by. A weak story that's just not written very well.
