Weakly entertaining Middle Ages fantasy.

A competent cast keeps this eccentric time travel movie (based on a Michael Crichton novel) amusing if far from successful.

Timeline takes the most ridiculous movie plot ever and multiplies it by ten.

This big-budget adventure is based on a recent Michael Crichton thriller, though its premise is too stale to instill the sense of wonder critical to great sci-fi.

In Michael Crichton's oeuvre, this is more The 13th Warrior than Westworld. Silly larks for young boys with liberal parents.

...one of the least effective Crichton adaptations to date.

Yet another case of making time travel a messy ordeal rather than a load of fun, Timeline lacks the consistent tone, pace and point of view for either a science fiction thriller or medieval war adventure.

It's all a bit too near fetched to be a great movie, it's still fun.

If only I could go back in time to convince myself not to watch this ludicrous time travel yarn which 'faxes' a group of uninteresting characters back to the 1300s to screw up the space-time continuum.

It is just bland and easily forgettable.

It comes up short in both plot and quality.

Dark Horizons

At two hours and even with the rushed feel it still feels overly long and worst of all -- cheap.

Tyler Morning Telegraph (Texas)

Jeff Maguire, in adapting Crichton's novel, clearly had trouble explaining all the nuances of the story with the constraints of a Hollywood time limit.

Cinema Sight

With the exception of the original "Jurassic Park", films based on Crichton's novels have been not only unsuccessful but horrendously awful.

As the romantic lead, Paul Walker would be a stiff in any century...

About as impressive as rival gangs of Renaissance Pleasure Faire geeks launching bottle rockets and flaming rolls of toilet paper at each other.

Cinema em Cena

Linha do Tempo não é dos melhores livros de Chrichton - mas, ainda assim, é bem mais satisfatório do que esta adaptação pouco inspirada.

If you're looking for a decent action flick, Timeline should fit the bill.
