Movie Info

Where has director Michael Anderson been since Logan's Run? Earning his keep on such slick TV-style time-fillers as Millennium. Kris Kristofferson plays the head of an official committee investigating the head-on collision of two commercial jets. A thorough analysis reveals the presence of a weapon of unknown origin in the wreckage; it is also pointed out that some of the victims' watches are running backwards. This, coupled with the cryptic warnings by flight attendant Cheryl Ladd to drop the investigation, prompts Kristofferson to burrow further and uncover the truth: Ladd is a sentinel from 1000 years in the future, who has come back to the 20th Century to help repopulate her dying civilization. Plot pegs and obstacles are in the hands of such sideline characters as enigmatic professor Daniel Travanti and amiable android Robert Joy. Millennium was adapted by John Varley from his own story Air Raid.

Millennium plays out much like someone trying to drunkenly explain the plot of a Doctor Who episode they haven't seen in several years.

Audience Reviews for Millennium

Is "Millennium" one of those so-bad-it's-good movies or is there something in it that makes it worth watching? I actually think it's got some very interesting ideas for a time travel story. I was intrigued by some of the plot's occurrances. The recovery of a futuristic weapon from an airliner collision. Found watches that are running backwards. All neat things that are mostly unsatisfying because we are forced to follow the corny love story between the stiff Kris Kristofferson and the perky but miscast Cheryl Ladd. I saw this a few weeks ago and the only things I can really remember is how freaky the android looked and how sharp Ladd was in a stewardess uniform. That doesn't speak much for the story itself.

This painfully dull and unintentionally cheesy sci-fi flicks starts out a mystery, becomes a quirky romance with a time-travel twist, then ends as a silly save-mankind pic.

A good time travel flick.
