Storyline

David Herdeg's participation in a failed 1943 experiment in radar invisibility has propelled him 40 years into the future. An aberration in his genetic makeup enabled him to pass through the portal of time. It has also made him sensitive to any alteration to the time continuum. Another disasterous experiment in 1993 sends a stealth aircraft through the time portal, into 1943 Germany. Simultaneously, Herdeg is pulled into the portal, and finds himself in the terrifying 1993 that resulted from a Nazi victory in World War II. Written by Kevin Ackley <kackley1@aol.com>

Goofs

In the alternate 1993 where the Nazis had conquered the U.S., no German was spoken by anyone including the soldiers and guards. It seems unlikely that The descendants of the Nazi's that occupied the U.S. would somehow switch to English. In addition to this, Mailer seems to be having trouble communicating in German when he meets his father in 1943. It's very unlikely the descendants of the occupying Nazis would abandon their home language and not force the surviving U.S. civilian population to learn German. No explanation for this is offered.

Quotes

Dr. William Mailer: What went through your mind on your way here?
David Herdeg: Truth is twisted, who's responsible?
Dr. William Mailer: Well, responsibility is, generally, one of those things claimed by the righteous, whereas consequences are assigned to the meek. What's your choice?
David Herdeg: Strength... to make the right choice.

So what's wrong with it?
17 August 1998 | by (Iowa City, IA) – See all my reviews

A generally enjoyable movie. It's not a great movie, but it does some interesting things with time travel, paradoxes, etc. I certainly wouldn't consider it in the bottom 100.
