Too many flaws.
18 October 2018 | by casablancavicSee all my reviews

There are simply too many flaws once the train departs to Chicago and they arrive in the windy city.

The plot gets lost 15 or so minutes in and gets worse as it continues.

Complete with lack of knowledge about time and distance and continuity and overall logic.

What could have been very good with a plausible storyline turned into more science fiction than the entire Star Wars / Star Trek franchise.

Obviously the writers didn't do enough research and thinking in any capacity. Using any real knowledge would have stopped this story dead in it's tracks.

If the theme of "sticking it to the man" was supposed to shine through...it sorely didn't.

This failed miserably - and the good actors had small roles (which is a good thing).

Had Kevin Bacon and a small handful of actors taken on any larger scope of this film, it would have truely killed their careers.

Wilford Brimley didn't have to worry - as he was looking at going to the other side anyway, so this was just something for him to pass time with.

Whatever potential this movie had, disappeared and never came back to reality.

End of the Line is really end of the line...there's nowhere for it to go and once you get there - you wonder why you decided to even take the chance.
