In the original theatrical release, Porter Reese was so distracted by the destruction of the motorcycle that he did not notice the approach of the helicopter's tail rotor until it was too late -- there was a scream, a splattering sound, and a shot of empty gore-drenched boots. For the DVD release, the shot was replaced with pickup shot of Reese crawling on the ground; the audio, however, was not changed. The original sequence is preserved in the laserdisc release.

Some good ideas just get lost in the time/space continuum.
Look at "Timerider". Great idea (moto-cross racer Ward inadvertently rides through a time travel experiment that lands him back in the Old West, circa 1870), but once Ward comes upon an Old West town, that's where things kind of slow down to a crawl.
At least the cowboys are smart enough to realize something's wrong. A gang of cowboys shoot at a revving motorcycle, they think Ward in all his moto-cross gear is some kind of demon and no one knows what an Exxon station is. You'd think Ward would get the message, but no. He even gets to know a woman (Bauer) whom he doesn't understand his connected with until the very last scene.
Thank goodness for pros like Coyote, Masur, Lauter and Walter; they help keep things lively and interesting for a while. Even good old L.Q. Jones shows up as a Texas Ranger to add some spice to the proceedings.
I won't say too much more about the movie. Indeed, there are some scenes here that are best left experienced by the individual. But for the most part, being a veteran of the "Back to the Future" series, I was left wanting.
Who knows, Hollywood says they're running out of ideas for sequels....
Two stars. Nice try, but this "Timerider" stays lost in time.
