If you've seen Hirokin you'll think you know what a 'bad' movie is (If you haven't seen it - don't!)

However, it is a veritable masterpiece compared with this drivel. The editing is awful; the acting and screen-writing is cringeworthy; and it seems to have been shot on a low grade digital format, which looks poor. Added to that, the music is just plain bizarre - and really doesn't fit with the dross that it is being played out on screen. It is almost as if the composer had been given an entirely different brief to work from.

This really is an awful movie. If you want better entertainment then you'd be better off buying a few dead goldfish and watching them decompose.

This is very much a 'keep it in the family' film. Written by Thomas Gomez Durham and James Durham. Directed by Thomas Gomez Durham and starring Alesandra Durham!

I love time travel movies when done intelligently and well. This however is not done well at all!

The cover is great - a hot sci-fi warrior woman in tight outfit - standing on a ledge overlooking a World on fire with battles raging and spaceships firing on all six...I had my eye on it for ages and then I saw it in a charity shop for 1.50 - so I took a chance and bought it.

What a disappointment! The lack of reviews on the cover is a dead give-away. It's dross...utter dross. The scene on the cover is not even in the film - should be done for trade descriptions act there, methinks!

The plot is confusing to say the least and the acting is rubbish. Not all the acting, to be fair there is *some* good acting from Alesandra Durham and a few others but generally the standard of acting is poor. The special effects are like something out of Blake's 7.

The plot is patchy and never seems to resolve itself. You sit there and think 'what the hell is happening now' (after you've stopped laughing at the appaling the acting, that is).

The sound is clear but doesn't sound like 'movie quality' and the film score is bizzare - probably roped in another family member - Uncle Durham or something.

I want to be fair here - I watched it twice just to check that it was really that bad, but sadly it was...

It must have gone straight t DVD (no suprise there) but must have had a large worldwide realease as even my local Tesco's are stocking in...odd...the must be more Durhams in high places!

All in all - could have been a good film with a larger budget, better plot, better acting and better special effects...but as it stands best avoid it as it's 92 minutes of your life that you'll never get back!

I'm struggling to find positives about this movie. I like the poster, only it doesn't really reflect the film. The lead does her best but all the other acting was stilted and wooden. These actors will hopefully have a day job to go back to. But then the script did not help them. Nor did the director. I did laugh out loud on occasions, for all the wrong reasons. But not enough to make it a cult classic.

*WARNING - SPOILER AHEAD*

So okay, a girl is born in a space/time anomaly created by multiple time machines that exist at multiple points in Earths past/present/future. The FBI woman can reverse time a few seconds because of this and her husband has been kidnapped by a future version of her FBI boss, who stops her from discovering the exact location of the time machine by preventing her from pinpointing the epicenter of all the space/time anomalies that have been created as a result of the time machines operation. Even though the boss successfully gets her to go back in time and stop her marrying the husband, all this does is create a cannibalistic timeline that takes over her own one and turns her into an 'echo'! Its a good job her future son came back from her original future timeline (that should no longer exist by the way) and give her a gravity bracelet so she can restore the timeline.... yet what is the point in all this???

- Who are the villains?

- Why are they building time machines at various points in Earths past/present/future??? Is this coordinated or random???

- Why did they turn future Earth into an apocalyptic wasteland where the Earths centers lava is overflowing to the surface, is this planned or accidental???

There is absolutely no point to this whole story. There is no sense of discovery in the movie, no travelling to new Worlds which would exist at different points of Earths timeline (which is the whole point of time travel), no great 'journeys'! A complete waste of the genre!!!

Very much like a TV movie and not to be confused with 'Time Runner' featuring Mark Hamil, though it has a similar plot. This movie has some quirks that make it interesting. Its perception of time travel and where in someone's life you might intersect it and the extent to which you might be able to bring about a change, is interesting. Not only do we have a time machine featured but the lead character, an FBI agent Sally, played by Alesandra Durham, herself can go back in time by some seconds to make alterations, leading to interesting outcomes.

Aside from 'Fargo', this is the only non-sentimental movie that I can recall in which the heroine is pregnant for most of the scenes. Interestingly she also has a poor relationship with her husband. Thus, you have got all the elements of an afternoon movie with science fiction aspects put on top.

Worth watching for the debate it will stimulate, but the effects feel like they are from 1995 and the detachment of those in the future from those in 'nowadays', in fact the mid-2000s, seems like budget saving. It probably does deserve an award for the largest and most energy-consuming time machine. The concepts explored exceed the packaging they are presented in.
