Audience Reviews for Biggles: Adventures in Time

I remember this movie was cheezy, even when I was a kid. The music is a bit misplaced throughout, but the stuntwork is really good.

A surprisingly good film apart from the obnoxious intrusion of a time-traveling American from the '80s, who has the most ridiculous time travel method since Rip Van Winkle fell asleep for twenty years. Unfortunately, the crew involved decided that this should be the main plot and the Biggles WW1 aerial adventure the subplot. So much of the only plot that does work feels like potted excerpts from the Biggles novels. It was actually better than I thought it would be, since the WW1 scenes are quite well done. However, there's no getting over the time-traveling plotsicle, and that means the film can never achieve its true potential.

Not helped by having a very silly and unheroic name (Biggles?!! Seriously!), not to mention a godawful 80's synthesised soundtrack - it's clear to see why this film has always remained unknown, and yet beneath all that is a rather ripping WWI, sc-fi yarn that ignores every time travel paradox, and comes up with some classic lines such as "Excuse me chaps, would you mind surrendering?". And it has Peter Cushing (complete with pet Raven) being great. A really rather fun romp, what ho and tally, that everyone should make time to watch, what.
