When You Add It All Up.....It's A Winner
14 January 2002 | by (Brooklyn-Canada) – See all my reviews

I've been trying like crazy to find this on DVD. The fact that no stores (including Blockbuster) carry it, might make you believe that that's proof that the movie sucks. But, when I think of how hard I'm trying to find it....I realize how much I enjoyed it.

It's simple....just when you've seen just about every "back in time", "ahead into the future" film......along comes The Thrill Seekers with a unique angle....a man joy riding through disasters. Makes me think of what it would have been like to be on the Titanic, Hindenberg...even the World Trade Center. Don't particularly know the actors all that well. I was sold on just the story itself. It made me walk away wondering what it would be like to travel back to famous/infamous dates in time.

If you walk away and find yourself thinking about a movie's plot a year after seeing it....doesn't it deserve a 10?

Acting? Directing? Lighting? Script?

Who cares?

It was simply fun.

John
