Storyline

Bill Smith, chief investigator for the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB), has been assigned to determine whether human error is the cause of an airline crash. He and his team of investigators are very confused by the words on the cockpit voice recorder by the crew relating to the crash. But at the same time, a theoretical physicist named Dr. Arnold Mayer has a real professional curiosity about the crash, which borders on science fiction. While giving a university lecture, he talks about time travel and the possibility of visitors from the future. Smith discovers the involvement of an organization of time travellers from a future Earth irreparably polluted who seek to rejuvenate mankind from those about to perish in the past.

Trivia

In the final scene, the viewer hears Sherman say: "This is not the end. This is not even the beginning of the end. It is the end of the beginning." These lines are paraphrased and borrowed from Winston Churchill's 10 November 1942 speech at the Lord Mayor's Luncheon, in which he used similar language to describe the turning of the tide of the Second World War in favour of the Allies.

Goofs

After Louise takes a shower, Sherman helps her put her uniform top on, but there is no sign she puts on or is wearing any other clothing. However, as the scene continues, Louise is seen wearing a type of pants/shorts as they walk together. See more »

Maybe I'm a nut...but I liked this film.

It is campy, no doubt, and there are a couple of scenes that try to take themselves seriously and fall flat, but overall I thought it was a clever, original film with lots of sci-fi fan humor and a bunch of unexpected but meaningful plot twists.

If you like campy, idealistic sci-fi you might want to give it a shot.
