Storyline

A group of archaeologists and combat experts led by Chris Johnston (Paul Walker) and Kate Ericson (Frances O'Connor) use a "3-D fax machine" to time-travel back to France in 1357, in hopes of retrieving Chris' father, Professor Edward Johnston (Sir Billy Connolly), and returning safely to the present. No such luck. Fending for themselves against marauding hordes of medieval French warriors at war with the invading British, these semi-intrepid travellers find their body count rising, and the deadline for their return home is rapidly approaching.

Trivia

The problem of language is ignored in this movie, having a French-speaking character. In the novel, however, it is stated that, as in reality, people in 1357 did not speak modern English or French, but Occitane, a language in which Andre Marek (Gerard Butler) is fluent, according to the book. Also, the novel describes some high-tech translator devices the characters put in their ears, which also is absent in this movie. See more »

Goofs

After Lady Claire and Marek kiss for the first time, she wipes away a tear, in the next shot, she put her hair back. This could not be done in one move, her hand is at eye height, and after that its on the top of her head. See more »

Enjoyed It
7 March 2005 | by phoebes_jeebiesSee all my reviews

I truly enjoyed this movie. It really isn't as bad as most of the reviews I've read make it out to be. It was not horrible or a waste of time. I rented it first and liked it so much I bought it. I'd recommend it for anyone who enjoys Sci-Fi movies for their entertainment value. I haven't read the book, so I can't make any comparisons. I think the whole story came together smoothly. Overall the acting was good, however Paul Walker would probably benefit from a few more classes. Gerard Butler was awesome in his role as Marek. I have a feeling we'll be seeing a lot him in the future (no pun intended). I loved the beginning, the end, and everything in between. I give it a strong 8.
