The bolts of light from the weapons fired in space always seem to take pretty much the same time to move across the screen, no matter whether they're supposed to be moving a few hundred feet across the front of a space station, a few miles across a city, or several hundred miles from orbit to Earth's surface.

A lesser effort for Hamill that proves otherwise decent
Mark Hamill tried hard to prove himself as a rising actor after
RETURN OF THE JEDI back in '83, but alas, the poor dope couldn't find anything that would bring him back to the same superstardom he
received as Luke Skywalker. With the exception of his truly excellent voice-over talent as the Joker in BATMAN: THE ANIMATED SERIES, Hamill had to work in low-budget flix, like TIME RUNNER. In what looks like another TERMINATOR-style sci-fi flick, Hamill plays a soldier from (where else?) the future, who was sent back in time to the early
90's in order to prevent a disaster from skewering the timeline. As tired as the storyline sounds, TIME RUNNER is actually an enjoyable
piece of work. Hamill plays a less-restrained performance, going gonzo on the baddies with guns instead of using the Force or light sabers. The late, great Brion James also shines, as the head honcho of the villains that Hamill's character so truly desired to eliminate.
