Both Fred Ward and Peter Coyote appeared together the previous year, 1981, in a movie called "Southern Comfort". In that movie Ward's character was called "Reese", the same name of Coyote's character in "Timerider". See more »

If General Lee had that machine, we would have won the war.
My favorite Fred Ward movie is Remo Williams:The Adventure Begins. Of course, the adventure ended with that movie as well as they never did a followup. I have seen him in Silkwood and The Right Stuff as well. All of these movies, including this one were released about the same time (1982-1985). I don't know why I haven't caught him in anything since, but I certainly enjoyed that period of his career.
I really enjoy time travel movies. They don't have to be first quality, just the idea captivates me. When I watched this, I had just finished another time travel film with William Devane and Lauren Hutton (Timestalkers). Not first quality, but interesting nonetheless.
This one starts off with Swann (Ward) getting caught in a time travel test and being shot back to 1877 with his motorcycle and full gear. You can imagine the impact that had on an old Mexican.
Swann spends his time trying to figure out where he is, while he tries to escape the bad guy, played by Peter Coyote, who wants his "machine."
Interesting twist at the end of a mediocre, but fascinating movie.
Would have liked to see more of Belinda Bauer, but I'll have to check out her appearance in Winter Kills for that.
