Futuristic action feature. When the wife of hard-nosed cop Jack Deth (Tim Thomerson) is killed by zombie-like creatures known as 'trancers', he goes after the criminal using psychic powers to control them, Martin Whistler (Michael Stefani), in the Angel City of 2247. But Jack is forced to pursue his target through time as Whistler travels back to 1985 in an attempt to take control of their present city. Will Jack be able to gain his revenge before Whistler eliminates all the future governors of LA from existence?

This is a very funny film, it had me laughing out loud a good few times.
Admittedly the second half sags a little after the splendid opening, but this is a great film. Worth filing next to Remo - unarmed and dangerous and Buckaroo Banzai, though probably more accessible than either of those. My whole family loved this one.
Finally it is a perfect film for getting you in the mood for Christmas, how many films can boast Helen Hunt dressed up as Santa's little helper and a homicidal shopping mall Santa.
So what makes this such a great little movie? Well for starters, fans of the 'Timecop' franchise and similar outings will love this. There are a hatful of movies in recent times that have borrowed from Trancers time-travelling vehicle, but none have done it so tongue-in-cheek.
Awful sets that genuinely add to the overall 'cult' feel, monologue-obsessed antagonists and James Bond style gadgets that create ample time for our hero, Jack Deth, to obliterate them - but somehow never seems to get the chance until the most unlikely of scenarios. All this and a youthful Helen Hunt, who no matter how hard she tries, still doesn't look remotely alluring.
If you liked films like Repo Man, The Stuff and other schlock - you'll love this. If you prefer a little more gloss and finesse, you're probably better off with Avatar. I for one loved it - and the sooner Trancers gains the rightly deserved status of 'Cult Classic', the better. Great stuff!
I guess I should explain that "trancers" are the murderous, weak-minded slaves (or "squids," in 23rd century parlance) whom Whistler has put in a trance - they do his bidding until they're killed (or "singed"), at which point they spontaneously combust radioactively for no apparent reason.Read more ›
