Trivia

The street chase, train station, and subway scenes were all shot in Toronto. All the subway stations depicted are actually the same unused platform. This is why the escalator is shown as dismantled for maintenance when the characters enter the station: it was removed when the platform was closed. See more »

Goofs

A train car rolling sideways along four tracks plows easily through the three sets of columns between them. As these are sturdy supports for the roof, they should resist the car with much greater force, tearing it apart. And if so many of them did get destroyed, the tunnel should collapse. (Reused goof from Money Train.) See more »

Don't dismiss it because of the actors
5 August 2001 | by (Namibia) – See all my reviews

I was not expecting much of this movie, because it was obviously made for TV. The summary in the TV guide made it sound interesting, although it was not exactly clear what the movie was about. I'm glad I didn't give it a miss, because it really was worth watching. I think it took me about 20 minutes to understand exactly what was going on, and that Caspar Van Dien's character was not going to be the one doing the time travelling, but once I realised that, I really began to enjoy the movie. It's not often nowadays that I sit through an entire movie, and am glued to the screen, but I was with this one and it wasn't entirely predictable either. I like a movie that makes you think about the situations it portrays, and time travel is a fascinating topic. The acting probably wasn't perfect, but I've seen much worse, and I put this movie on the same level as "Deep Impact" - it has substance.
