When Georgia Crawford first meets Dr. McKenzie at the shooting range, he turns to her in surprise, holding both his pistols in his hands. After a brief conversation, she asks him if he is going to draw on her, and after that we see both of his pistols back in his belt. Although we don't see his hands during the conversation, we see his upper arms which obviously don't make any kind of move as to put the guns back in the belt. See more »

A film to be remembered for the ages
5 April 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I watch westerns on a weekly basis, and one day i was browsing through the internet looking at Sci-Fi westerns when i saw Timestalkers. I did some research to find that it is a rare film. Afterwords i bought it on VHS off eBay. When i watched this film i found it had a good storyline. William Devane plays to role of a man with an obsession for the old west. He finds and old photo from a trunk bought at auction, in the photo he sees a man holding a man holding a 1980 magnum. He encounters a lady from the future and they travel back to the old west. William Devane plays a great role in the film,and it is very well shot. This film is a rarity in the Sci-Fi western section, apart from Back To The Future 3 i have only seen this film as being great.It is worth watching alone or with the family, it will leave a fond memory to last forever burning in our hearts.
