2055, Charles Hatton has made a fortune by founding 'Time safari', which offers rich 'big game hunters' short time travels to kill off dinosaurs just before their natural death. When Travis notices the weather and wildlife are not behaving as usual, he consults Dr. Rand, the contractually invisible inventor of the supercomputer which controls the time travel. They soon face 'time waves', each worsening the effects in 2055 of evolutionary distortions, lower lifeforms first. They attempt to identify and rectify the past alteration, but each attempt gets harder in their distorted present. Written by
The film takes place millions of years in the past and in 2055. See more »
After the crew returns from the trip, Ryer talks to Payne about the malfunction. Payne then mentions the Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle and that is says nothing can be certain. Actually, the Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle does not state that "nothing can be certain". It states that the momentum and position of any object cannot both be exactly known. As the precision with which one of these properties is known increases, the precision of the other property decreases. Similarly, with time and energy. This uncertainty in knowing these pairs of values is not due a defect in any instrument; it is a fundamental law of nature. See more »
I heard the special effects in this movie was nothing to crow about. What I heard was right. While the dinosaur(s) - I'm not sure if plurality is warranted here - looked rather poorly modeled, the other creatures in the movie were passable. The story had so much potential but a rather poor script and lack of funding (I guess) ruined it. Despite all that, whatever remained was enough to carry me through the 95 minutes this movie ran. Ben Kingsley's talents were rather wasted, in my opinion. Overall, it starts off slow but picks up somewhere in the middle and keeps you interested if you are not the nitpicking type. Perhaps a better version or a similar story to it (with a bigger budget) will be released in the future.
