The direction from which Cortez approaches the service station garage window, as viewed by Tom in a mirror, is about 90 degrees the other direction from which she was shown approaching the building in a previous shot. (This was maybe done on purpose to make the mirror shot look "right" because of the reversed angles). See more »

User Reviews

An average, fairly intelligent time travel movie...
17 October 1999 | by Robert-132See all my reviews

This movie is, happily, not a waste of time. It is fairly intelligent, and for the most part manages not to get too lost in temporal theory. The premise lies with Tom Merrick (Casper Van Dien), a former award-winning reporter now working for a tabloid, discovering that the same person was present at the RMS Titanic sinking, the Hindenburg crash, and an electrical plant fire where Merrick nearly lost his life. As he investigates, he attracts the attention of some strange agents who might be time travellers.

While the movie is relatively fast paced and manages to steer clear of too many cliches, it is unfortunately marred by a couple of gaping plot holes. However, it is nice to know that Casper Van Dien can actually act, and he manages to do a decent job on this one.

So, the final verdict: not too bad SF, and fairly good entertainment for two hours. 3.5/5
