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 ...

probably not enough of a budget but very enjoyable
5 March 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

good scifi. i enjoyed the concept, sure it could have been better, but ... it's not bad, yes, it is no 'alien' or 'starwars', but within its limitations, it was well done.

i tend to suspend reality a little when watching a movie, i am someone who really enjoys movie, so .. i might not be as critical as the next person.

i have been wanting a copy, in DVD, for years now, i caught this on a late nite program, and really enjoyed it. unless one is overly 'picky' i am sure that they will enjoy it, too.

whenever it comes out in DVD, i will get a copy, i enjoyed it that much.
