Lou Diamond Phillips,
Top secret government experiments with time travel have been shut down and declared as too dangerous to continue. The lead scientist has disappeared with the technology and a government manhunt is underway. When his name appears on an airline manifest after the flight has departed, the government orders the plane to turn back. But the plane drops from the radar, disappearing into thin air! As special agents try to locate the plane, scientists must deal with the repercussions from the time ripples that threaten to destroy the Earth. Written by
Here's an ultra low-budget sci-fi thriller starring a couple of past-it actors and a plot augmented by some decidedly cheesy special effects. The narrative kicks off with a passenger plane disappearing mid-flight, and it soon transpires that it's been sucked into a wormhole and now exists in some timeless limbo.
Of course, some nefarious government guys are the ones responsible, and the film incorporates B-movie favourite Lou Diamond Phillips (A BETTER WAY TO DIE) as the crazy scientist who thought up the time-travelling contraption in the first place. The good news is that there's a hero on the scene, played with a distinct lack of relish by former heart-throb Jason Priestley (BEVERLY HILLS 90210).
Priestley's role consists of running around and shooting various bad guys, although the less said about his emoting the better. Half the film is set on the plane, and these moments have some of the natural tension of a hostage drama, but said tension is dissipated by a series of excruciatingly awful special effects which look like they belong in a Nintendo video game mid-1990s. Still, I preferred TERMINATION POINT to the mindless disaster flicks these studios normally churn out; at least it's a little more inventive than them.
