good solid time travel movie
30 April 2015 | by See all my reviews

Ben Wilson (Jeff Daniels) is haunted by his wife Carolyn's freak accident. Carolyn's father Judge Caldwell still blames him for her death. He is renovating a country inn with his daughter Hillary (Ariana Richards). Before he's done, Madame Iovine comes to rent out the entire house for 3 nights avoiding the hotel in town. He gets suspicious of the group that she's leading. Mr. Quish is a late arrival covered with a layer of ash. The bus driver Oscar found them waiting in the middle of nowhere and they don't seem to have any cameras. Mr. Quish gets sideswiped by a car and the doctor finds a mysterious object in his head. Ben finds Quish's passport with stamps of disaster dates. Quish warns him to leave town with his family immediately. The judge uses his influence to take temporary custody of Hillary. That night, a meteor hits the town.

It has a good sci-fi time travel idea. The style and the scale is closer to a good TV movie. The action and effects are not high standard. Jeff Daniels does a good job maintaining control of the screen. However I wish the other characters especially the time travelers are much more compelling. They could have been more interesting. This is generally a good movie but nothing spectacular.
