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 ...

Excellent, inventive sci-fi story
24 September 2013 | by See all my reviews

Caught this movie on TV and it definitely held my attention. I appreciated the fact that what little violence there was mainly took the form of fistfights. I would have rated it 10, except for the gratuitous and really ridiculous taking of the Lord's name in vain so many times, considering that we're dealing with an organization of advanced planets. Certainly this "federation" of thousands of planets must know Who it is that created those planets. Probably the smarmy Showtime networks idea. So minus two for that. The few special effects there were just reminded me of the low budget original Star Trek. If the story is there, and it is, special effects used judiciously are fine. The beautiful Cynthia Geary is a plus.
