Worth it just for Nikki Coghill
10 June 2014 | by (Sydney, Australia) – See all my reviews

The Time Guardian is notable for sci fi fans for the casting of two of its cast members Carrie Fisher and Dean Stockwell. For Carrie Fisher this is a non-Star Wars science fiction movie, if not the only one to feature her. As The Time Guardian involves time travel, Dean Stockwell will return to this territory more frequently in Quantum Leap. For an Australian science fiction film, The Time Guardian seems like a wasted opportunity. Its only saving grave is with the casting of Nikki Coghill as Annie. Nikki is the only thing that of worth about The Time Guardian especially when she shows off her beautiful breasts when swimming topless. As a result of this I love Nikki very much.
