Chicago, 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 scientist Travis Ryer notices the weather and wildlife are not behaving as usual, he consults Dr. Sonia Rand, the contractually invisible inventor of the supercomputer which controls time. 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
One major reason for this movie's long delay is that the original production company went bankrupt during post-production, and there simply wasn't money to finish the movie. See more »
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.

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.
