I remember this from the 80s. Sometimes films are best left in the 80s. Revisiting them can be disappointing but it had a few ideas I remembered liking at the time. Definitely cult. Fair play to Helen Hunt for doing a sequel after she got more famous than the lead actor. One thing stood out - he drives like a child at the steering wheel, the car should have been swerving left to right. ha ha.

This is one of the best films of the eighties. It transcends its low budget with great writing, great characters and an abundance of imagination. The film is packed with great lines, why Tim Thomerson did not go on to be a huge star is a mystery, he is wonderful in this, as is Helen Hunt who did go on to be a huge star. The rest of the cast look great and do a decent job.

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.

By still searching TOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 7 Dec. 2007
Format: DVD
Fifty-cent Sci-Fi with a nod to The Terminator and Blade Runner; features a criminally underused Tim Thomerson and an early outing for Helen Hunt. Despite the budget director Band makes the most of his two `stars' and the plot, involving time travel, murderous zombie henchman and a washed up alcoholic baseball star, provides ample entertainment to keep even the most po-faced critic happy - its funny too! The set design is also sufficiently retro to more than satisfy fans of fifties Sci-Fi classics. One of those gems you'll return to time and again!

Forget the transfer - it's terrible. Forget the acting - it's corny as all hell. Forget the extras - there aren't any.

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!

4/5

By Daniel Jolley HALL OF FAMETOP 1000 REVIEWER on 21 Oct. 2010
Format: DVD
Any real fan of low-budget sci-fi and horror has to have a soft spot in his heart for Charles Band, the crown prince of B-movies who is perhaps best known for the Puppet Master [DVD] series, and 1985's Trancers is one of the films that helped put him on the proverbial map. This film, packed with quotable cheesy lines, some gloriously bad acting, and oftentimes laughable special effects, went on to inspire multiple sequels - but the biggest thought this movie inspired in my head was "Man, Helen Hunt was pretty hot back in 1985." In fact, Hunt's character's inexplicable attraction to clumsy, middle-aged oafs from the future had me wishing someone could transport me back in time to that year, as well. What's Trooper Jack Deth (Tim Thomerson) got that I don't have? Oh, yeah - a watch that can stop time for ten incredibly long seconds and a mission to kill Whistler's mother's son. Whistler, of course, is the evil genius who killed Deth's wife and has now gone back in time three centuries to 1985 to kill the ancestors of the three Council members who run Angel City. You know the old saying - if you can't beat `em, go back in time and kill their great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-grandfathers (and, of course, be sure to tell them exactly what your plan is in advance, especially if they think you're already dead and no longer a threat to them).

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.

Charles Band's low-budget gem creaks into the 21st century. It's a budget title for a reason, as the DVD transfer looks like its been taken from a well-used rental video copy and, despite being a "proper" movie, is presented here only in 4:3 full screen format. Technological disappoinments aside, Trancers is still an enjoyable, cheap and cheerful B-movie, featuring a time-travelling Tim Thomerson and a pre-fame Helen Hunt dressed in a Santa outfit. It's daft and dated and looks like it was made for about sixpence, but it's extremely likeable and, for some reason, just works. It also spawned 4 sequels, each one worse than the last.
