Storyline

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 KGF Vissers

Trivia

Renny Harlin was fired from the production, because he made a creative decision that made Ray Bradbury very unhappy, and this film's producers decided to support Ray Bradbury. See more »

Goofs

The film is excessively loose with its requirements for what constitutes a time altering event. For instance, any sound made by bullets fired, voices, footsteps, etc. would cause surrounding wildlife to react in a manner drastically different than if the alien noises had never been created. Furthermore, the presence of both the temporal pathway and the people walking upon it would divert wildlife from what would have been their original movements, causing drastically different outcomes for said creatures.

Quotes

Travis Ryer: We cannot have accidents.
Payne: While I was a physics major in college, we studied something called the Heisenberg uncertainty principle. It proves that there is no such thing as zero tolerance. It doesn't exist. You basically can't be 100% sure of anything no matter how hard you try. Accidents... happen.
Travis Ryer: We can't have accidents.

A Sound of Dunder
8 September 2005 | by (Omaha, NE, USA) – See all my reviews

This movie was in every way horribly terrible. It's supposed to have a strong theme about the ethics and risks of time travel with lots of special effects to make it "look cool". The one problem, though, is that the movie blatantly disregards the laws of time and space continuum at parts, but then revolves around it in other parts. The use of the green screen was TERRIBLE!!! In one scene, they couldn't sync up the speed of two characters walking with the speed of the sidewalk going by. There were scenes in which you could clearly see where the set ended and the green screen picked up. If this was a big budget film, then I pity the fool that funded it. The directing was also awful. The feeble attempts to jolt the audience with pathetic scare tactics left me rolling in my seat with laughter. I would give this movie one star. The only reason that it even gets the one star is that this could be a good movie to rent with your friends if you're looking for a good laugh.
