Storyline

During a time of waning global resources, a crew of young researchers travel into the future to escape an apocalypse before the shutdown of their time transfer project. They find that some type of disaster has de-populated the Idaho region and, by implication, the nation or perhaps the world. Facing an unknown, barren future of abandoned towns and deserted vehicles; void of radio signals or any signs of air or land traffic, they encounter an abandoned freight train filled with bagged bodies. Their further discoveries of humanity's future fate is somewhat less than rosy. They also learn their time travel was not without significant costs to their own health. After one of the group travels further into the future, she encounters a family in a futuristic automobile; implying humankind has recovered from the disaster (or have they?) Written by ozman

Trivia

A long strip of red Dymo tape runs across the transfer control box. At one point late in the film, the camera gets close enough that part of it is legible. It says: "...LASSES,RINGS,WATCHES,BRACELETS, ETC USE MAT..." This apparently refers to the compartment box in the transfer station in which all metal objects must be placed. See more »

Goofs

When Karen returns to the camp to find everyone dead, in the establishing shot, her face is caked with dirt, but in subsequent close-ups, and all other shots, her face is clean. See more »

Quotes

Ronald: I don't think you have to leave anything behind. Just have a beautiful time like all the other junk litter in the universe, then say goodbye. I don't know what else to tell you. Perpetuation and all the crap that goes with it is a big hoax anyway.

Fails to capitalise on a good premise.
3 October 2005 | by See all my reviews

The premise of this movie is quite good. Young scientists journey into the future to try and work out what wiped out humanity. The project gets shut down, and so the young kids go into the future and are stranded. OK so that is the the premise. The mark of a good writer is not so much to come up with such a premise, but to know what to do with it, how to finish it off, how to string it out into a compelling story. This is where this movie fails. After the truly engaging start, it plateaus and not much happens, in fact, there is very little explanation as to what the kids are trying to do (except go to Portland, and why not?). So we are left with a long stretch of very little for most of the movie. The ending is completely ridiculous, and it is worth staying around for, just for a good laugh.

An interesting failure of a film.
