Storyline

The disgraced time trouble-shooter Travis Beck now works for the boring, less glamorous bureau of time statistics and calibration. He is sent back in time to put a quarter in a meter located in a small town on the edge of the Nevada desert in a supposedly simple time calibration exercise. However, everything goes haywire right from the start when he materializes naked in front of June Kelly in the desert, twenty miles from the town. He becomes more suspicious of his mission when his ex-partner, Bill Thermot, arrives to protect him during his simple, routine assignment. The mission becomes even more sinister when Travis discovers that June's father, Walter Kelly, is a retired time trouble-shooter who warns him about the team of assassins, led by Rifkin Koss, who are determined to stop Travis at all costs. Soon the mission becomes a deadly race against time for Travis as he tries to unravel the mystery of this seemingly innocuous event in this backwater town and decides what to do to ...

Nice film for a rainy afternoon
5 November 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Well i was just rooting through a box of videos from a few years ago and came across this film. its raining like hell today and freezing cold, so staying in is the best option with a mug of chocolate! :) The plot is involving and gets you trying to guess whats going on. a few twists here and there. couple of fights with your A-typical redneck town idiots too! it was a nice plain and very watchable film. nothing over complicated and dumbed down, relying on CGI or over editing to keep you entertained. just a film as it should be. After it ended i was left feeling it could have ended a little more slowly, not so abrupt. But still an overall nice film.
