This film could be described as a romantic relationship between Kris Kristofferson and the beautiful Cheryl Ladd, but that would be boring. But when she is a time traveller from 1,000 years ahead of us, then that gives this film the edge. She and her time travel partners keep on losing their 'stunners' and have to come back to retrieve them, to avoid a time paradox, and the subsequent time quake. They want to capture humans to preserve the species as they are dying, to avoid a time paradox they capture humans who are about to die in a plane crash. The film features two plane crashes, one in 1963 and one in 1989 and in this one Kris is the plane crash investigator.

The film is a bit dated as in 1989 they are worried about acid rain, now we worry about global warming. Cheryl chain smokes in order to keep up her hydrocarbons, and in the 1963 air crash you can see the stewardess serving cigarettes. The robot has the best lines as far as humour is concerned. There is one extended scene on the romance between Kris and Cheryl, that is repeated, this only works because one is before we know she is a time traveller and the second after we know that she is a time traveller. The inevitable happens and a time paradox occurs leading to... The SFX are OK for 1989. All in all a good film which has been scripted very well. I was able to watch the DVD twice when I got it, I first saw the film on TV 15 years ago. It is underrated by the Sci Fi guys IMHO.

Format: DVD
John Varley's time travel story "Millennium" which came out both as this film and as a full length novel with the same title in the 1980's is one of his best pieces of writing.

Varley's initial concept was first published as the short story "Air Raid" and he was commissioned to write the screenplay for this film version: at about the same time he published an extended version of the short story, lining up with the film but including some rather broader themes and more detail in several areas, as the novel "Millennium."

If you have read the novel and are wondering whether the DVD measures up, it was not practical for the film makers to get the full scope of the novel into this film adaptation, but they did a pretty good job. Most of the political comments about air safety in the book, particularly those about the battle between Ronald Reagan and the air traffic controllers did not make it into this film, and neither did the quasi-religious aspects of the book. But most of the guts of the story did.

In particular, the film is faithful to the plot and tone of the novel, including both the central romance and some of the most gripping action scenes. Both the book and the film capture brilliantly some of the most memorable scenes in the story, and incorporate one or two quite funny moments, none of which I can begin to describe without spoiling the plot.

Kris Kristofferson is excellent as an air crash investigator, who discovers some unusual anomalies in the wreck of an aircraft. Cheryl Ladd is equally brilliant as the mysterious woman who sleeps with him and then disappears. As the story continues we learn more about the investigator's past, and why the mysterious woman reminds him so much of someone he remembers from his childhood.

I will try not to include any spoilers in this review.

Millennium is not a film that you can doze through. I originally had it on VHS tape but wanted a better copy. The plot arguably follows the most complex sequence of events of all the time travel films I have seen over the years. You need to pay close attention otherwise you will lose it. This is particularly important as some scenes get repeated later in the film, but from a different perspective and if you are not keeping up it can be confusing.

The standard of acting is first class, although I cannot deny that the plot, (based on "Air raid", a short story by John Varley), does contain a number of holes and improbabilities. However I believe that it is important to watch any science fiction film with a measure of open mindedness. For myself, providing the script is intelligently written, I just immerse myself in the universe created by the film's makers and accept that in some areas that particular universe does not operate in quite the same way as my own. You can't love Science fiction unless you are able to suspend your disbelief. Reading reviews for some other films I wonder whether some reviewers actually go to the cinema with the express intent of trying to find something wrong with the film.

I suppose that one of the main reasons that the film appeals to me is that the basic story line revolves around aircraft crash investigation. As an engineer who has spent all his working life (almost 50years) in the aviation industry I found the background script and plotting of this area to be almost perfect. In fact the opening sequence that precedes the credits still makes the hair on the back of my neck stand up no matter how many time I watch it.

The time lines of the two leading characters cleverly intertwine. I had to view this more than once to work it out, but that might just be me! The sets are magnificent; the work that went into them is incredible. The quote at the end (from Winston Churchill I believe?) has remained with me ever since. The great chemistry between Kristofferson and Ladd tops it off as a great film.
