    Okay/decent little sci-fi effort about a small town hotel proprietor who wonders about his curious new guests who seem just a hair out-of-step with the times. Its a nice idea w/o the budget to take things to the next level and that's too bad. And a couple of times Daniels has to overact to sell the piece, but overall its an alright consideration you leave wishing for more out of.

    Solid to good thriller with Daniels doing a fine job....I love the set up and the campy factor really works in this flicks favor.

    A great idea for a short story, with very little to say.

    Le premier film de David Twohy ("Pitch Black", "Les chroniques de Riddick"), du fantastique petit budget (les costumes des voyageurs spatio-temporels sont d'un kitsch a se tordre de rire) sentimental qui, de ce fait, prend son temps pour exposer ses enjeux, avant que tout ne s'accelere dans la derniere demi-heure. Distrayant mais rien de bluffant. Le concept des voyageurs spatio-temporels touristes observateurs passifs de catastrophes est le seul point vraiment notable de l'histoire, repris d'ailleurs dans d'autres fictions depuis ("Fringe"; un telefilm avec Casper Van Dien, il me semble; "L'armee des 12 singes" ?)

    A low budget sci-fi with intelligence and heart. Visitors in the future go into the past to view disasters as tourist destinations, and one man discovers them and alters the timeline, causing many paradoxical problems. Jeff Daniels gives a great performance and makes the movie. The simple conflicts and ability to create tension by situation alone allows better payoffs with the small special effect pieces. David Twohy has pretty good vision when it comes to science fiction. This little time travel gem is a very decent watch and a good movie.
