When Jack is fighting Borgia in the first 20 minutes of the movie, he has his gun knocked out of his hand. Moments later, he is knocked to the ground, and as his jacket lapel falls away, you can clearly see his gun, still holstered. See more »


Caliban: [to Prospero] I though I'd find you here. It's time to come home, my son.
Prospero: No.
Caliban: You've changed...yes, you've been reborn. Just as I anticipated, you were amongst the meat you could not resist, and now, we'll be together.
Prospero: Together in Hell!

Hack of Worlds
15 August 2018 | by fmarkland32See all my reviews

After losing his android partner in battle, along with other friends, Jack Deth (Thomerson) is accidentally transported to an alternate dimension where Trancers reign supreme and are vampire like killers, suffice to say Jack Deth straps on his blaster and joins forces with the rebels to tip the scales. There are a few good jokes that work here, mainly a take on Thomerson and his long second watch, also as usual Thomerson is fun to watch, but the movie lacks any real creative energy or ambition of the last two. Trancers 4 than feels too much like a sword and sorcery flick than a time travel flick which is what made the series fun. Fans of the series will enjoy this one and again it's watchable, it's just that, Trancers 4 has nothing new to add and is therefore disposable.

* * out of 4-(Mediocre)
