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 »

Just give me back some time.
27 July 2002 | by See all my reviews

This is a haphazard Sci-Fi western that is hard to build interest in. For a TV movie the special effects are pretty decent. The casting seems to be a grab-bag selection. A history professor(William Devane) and a time traveler(Lauren Hutton)try to foil a mad scientist(Klaus Kinski)from among other things prevent a presidential assignation. At times Hutton is quite fetching, but her appeal easily wears thin. Devane and his ever present hammy smile can also be tolerated. Kinski is excellent as the long white haired loose cannon of a scientist. He is not frightening, but evil indeed. Also in the cast are: John Ratzenberger(from TV's "Cheers"), Forrest Tucker and John Considine. At least, Hutton fans will be pleased.
