Trivia

The street chase, train station, and subway scenes were all shot in Toronto. All the subway stations depicted are actually the same unused platform. This is why the escalator is shown as dismantled for maintenance when the characters enter the station: it was removed when the platform was closed. See more »

Jon Monsarrat review: surprisingly good
30 March 2002 | by johnnymonsarratSee all my reviews

We don't expect much from made-for-TV movies with a cast of unknowns. But actually, the Time Shifter is an engaging, well-acted science fiction piece that got me thinking.

Primarily, this is due to Casper Van Dien, who plays the starring role, which involves a lot of running around frantically, determined to explain what's going on to himself and others through various natural disasters.

Who should see this film:

-- Science fiction movie buffs

-- Action movie buffs comfortable with the science fiction genre and with nothing better to do

-- Time-travelers looking to waste a little time in-between stops

I'll give "The Time Shifters", which you can find in video rental, a 7 out of 10.
