Chicago Tribune
There's something light and insubstantial about this movie. It almost floats away as you watch it.

The Hollywood Reporter
Glorious so-bad-it's-good entertainment.

Entertainment Weekly
Special kudos go to Walker, for his dead-on impression of a time-traveling 2x4, and the perpetually hysterical O'Connor, who delivers one of the most grating performances in history.
40
Variety
Lacks the consistent tone, pace and point of view for either a science fiction thriller or medieval war adventure.
38
ReelViews
Boring and repetitive.

Los Angeles Times
Donner's most calamitous mistake, however, was forgetting to light the screenplay on fire and catapult it from the nearest trebuchet.

The New York Times
Doesn't have a genuinely human moment.

New York Daily News
An instant contender for cult status on the midnight-movie circuit, where lines like "Do we look like quantum wormhole specialists?" will be given the respect they deserve.

Slate
This isn't a movie of hoary Sherwood Forest clichés. It manages, through sheer artistic force, to stoop below cliché--to seem both fresh and rotten at once.
10
The A.V. Club
Until Timeline reaches its flaming-trebuchet-siege finale -- which should impress anyone who's never seen "The Two Towers" -- it has the stirring production values of an episode of the Tia Carrere action series "Relic Hunter," but with only a fraction of the acting talent and intellectual heft.
