Trivia

Copps Coliseum is a real hockey stadium, but although depicted as being in an unspecified U.S. city, it's actually in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada. The city skyline seen in front of the stadium fire at one point is that of Toronto. See more »

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 »

This B-Movie is a little gem
1 July 2005 | by (Moisburg, Germany) – See all my reviews

Sometimes, you will find a little gem between all the cheap and poor B-movies that was aired all night on TV. "Thrill Seekers" is really one of this seldom gems and shows clearly, that you don't need a few 100-million dollars to made a good movie. The story makes it! And the story of the tourists from the future that traveling along the time-line to visit disasters of the past, is a very good plot. Our hero (living in our time) examines some old photos of disasters and make a very strange discovery... I will do not spoil the movie for you, but the many surprises and a lot of good twists (especially the last, and i mean the really very last :-) make it better than a lot of big Hollywood films that only works with massive action and CG-effects to cover a weak plot. Yes, you will probably find some logical errors in the film, but if you make a movie about time-travels, you can't avoid it, because nobody knows, what is really a logical error when time-travel warp the logic, or that, what we called logic, itself. So, what is going on when you go back in time and change the past... will you change the future, or some alternate futures in a multilevel universe? Who knows! And perhaps some visitors of the future are already among us... maybe it's a good idea to examine the photos of yesterdays disasters again and more exactly... I give it a 7 of 10. It is really worth to see it!
