Predictable fare; average movie
17 May 2000 | by ipswich-2See all my reviews

A so-so movie. A couple goes back in time to stop the assassination of President John Kennedy. This time travel tale becomes all too predictable once you know that they will fail. The movie is adequately engaging to keep you in your seat, with a nice twist at the end. But once you've watched it, you kinda get the familiar feeling that you've seen it before. If you want a good time travel plot, watch the Back To The Future series. They're definitely more original and enjoyable. I'd give Running Against Time a 5/10.
