Weird, no budget TV sci fi
18 October 2015 | by Leofwine_dracaSee all my reviews

TIME WARP is a forgotten (deservedly so, some might say) science fiction movie, made for TV and starring BATMAN's Adam West in a supporting role. It's a weird little flick, full of cheesy, cardboard effects and a meandering storyline involving an astronaut who, due to an anomaly in space, is transported back to Earth via time warp which means that nobody can see him because he's living a year in the future. Unbelievably, this was written by one 'Anne Spielberg' - sister to Steven, of course.

It's a neat idea, but the very poor, bargain-level execution helps to sink it. Imagine it as the thinking man's BUCK ROGERS IN THE 25TH CENTURY, with added 2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY thrown in (the guy has a friendly computer, HAL 9000 style, who helps him on his mission). There's no action here and much of the screen time just consists of a bored astronaut sitting around and waiting for stuff to happen. The invisible-to-family scenes are really weird and don't achieve much, although I guess the film does summon up an atmosphere of longing and nostalgia. The acting is generally wooden, with the exception being West's weird and not entirely successfully acting style.
