quite possibly the best film ever!!!!
25 February 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

If you haven't seen "Out of Time" starring the great Bruce Abbott and the wonderful Bill Maher in this fantastic science fiction action thriller, then you haven't lived. It's a great premise, a great grandson goes back in time to help his great grandfather save the world! Isn't that great. It's action packed, suspenseful and emotionally gripping at the same time. I cried at the end, and the special fx are mind blowing, even for today's standards. Go rent "Out of Time" and if you can't find it, order it. You won't be disappointed !!! Not only is it a beautiful and touching film, but Abbott's performance is so engaging, it explodes! See it or be square!
