Goofs

When the plane is at 7,000 to 8,000 feet, a city skyline is clearly visible through the cockpit windows. Only thing is that the view of the city seems to have been shot at a much lower altitude - like 900-1,000 feet. 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.
