Quotes

Annie Lassiter: Tell me more, Ballard.
Ballard: About the City?
Annie Lassiter: Yeah.
Ballard: You'd be amazed. The technology's enormous. We've got powers your time only dreams about.
Annie Lassiter: No, I mean, the people. Are they different?
Ballard: They still fight and squabble, and try very hard to outdo each other. I guess they're not very different.
Annie Lassiter: And what about men and women?
Ballard: They fall in and out of love, marry and divorce, argue over the children... what?

Confusing and drab
31 May 2002 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Tom Burlinson and Carrie Fisher are sent back in time from the 41st century to late 20th century Australia to thwart their cyborg enemies the Jen Diki-who are costumed like Vikings and have major nasal congestion problems into the bargain.Fisher is sidelined early through injury and Burlinson's main ally becomes a fetching young geologist with whom he develops a relationship Bags of noisy action but the budget restrictions are all too evident and its Stateside stars Fisher and Stockwell have essentially dispensable roles with too little to do

Only really suitable for die hard science fiction nuts
