Sometimes It's What You Think; Not What You Do
31 March 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a story of hope and commitment. This is the story of a man who traveled in time and brought about a rebirth on earth. James Whitmore plays the time traveler who stands in front of his facility and waits (with the rest of the world) for his own return. The earth was in a horrible place, polluting and disrespecting nature. What they needed was a hero to turn to, to give them the information they needed to correct their ills (would we could do that now). A young reporter is brought in by the scientist and shown the time machine. What happens then is both hopeful and startling. One can only weigh the implications of what is heard inside the fortress and ask if mankind has the ability to save itself.
