Storyline

The disgraced time trouble-shooter Travis Beck now works for the boring, less glamorous bureau of time statistics and calibration. He is sent back in time to put a quarter in a meter located in a small town on the edge of the Nevada desert in a supposedly simple time calibration exercise. However, everything goes haywire right from the start when he materializes naked in front of June Kelly in the desert, twenty miles from the town. He becomes more suspicious of his mission when his ex-partner, Bill Thermot, arrives to protect him during his simple, routine assignment. The mission becomes even more sinister when Travis discovers that June's father, Walter Kelly, is a retired time trouble-shooter who warns him about the team of assassins, led by Rifkin Koss, who are determined to stop Travis at all costs. Soon the mission becomes a deadly race against time for Travis as he tries to unravel the mystery of this seemingly innocuous event in this backwater town and decides what to do to ...

A very nice Sci-Fi / Thriller / Comedy / TV film.
29 July 2006 | by stuffersSee all my reviews

A very nice Sci-Fi / Thriller / Comedy / TV film. It is a pity there is no DVD released so far. A time traveling extraterrestrial scientist, Travis Beck, from the future is sent back in time to put a quarter in a meter located in a small town on the edge of the Nevada desert to save the world. What looks like a simple job becomes very complicated. Right from the start things go wrong. Travis Beck materialize naked in front of June Kelly in the desert, twenty miles from the town where he has to be. And he gets unexpected protection by his ex-partner Bill Thermot for such a simple job. Of course there are some romantic / comedy moments between the time traveler and June Kelly and some over the top scenes between Travis Beck and the assassins. In the end, 'When Time Expires' is a very nice Sci-Fi comedy film worth at least a rent.
