a great example of a woulda-coulda-shoulda movie
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5
December 29, 2010
Weakly entertaining Middle Ages fantasy.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
May 10, 2009
A competent cast keeps this eccentric time travel movie (based on a Michael Crichton novel) amusing if far from successful.
Full Review | Original Score: C-
November 5, 2008
Timeline takes the most ridiculous movie plot ever and multiplies it by ten.
November 5, 2008
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.
November 5, 2008
In Michael Crichton's oeuvre, this is more The 13th Warrior than Westworld. Silly larks for young boys with liberal parents.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5

...one of the least effective Crichton adaptations to date.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
October 18, 2008
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.
December 27, 2007
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.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/4
November 8, 2007
It is just bland and easily forgettable.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
July 5, 2005
It comes up short in both plot and quality.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5
March 14, 2005
At two hours and even with the rushed feel it still feels overly long and worst of all -- cheap.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/5
September 20, 2004
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.
| Original Score: 2/4
July 11, 2004
With the exception of the original "Jurassic Park", films based on Crichton's novels have been not only unsuccessful but horrendously awful.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/4
May 26, 2004
This offers a mystifying look at the future with a mind-bending twist.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4
April 7, 2004
Timeline is offensively bad.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/5
February 24, 2004
As the romantic lead, Paul Walker would be a stiff in any century...
February 21, 2004
About as impressive as rival gangs of Renaissance Pleasure Faire geeks launching bottle rockets and flaming rolls of toilet paper at each other.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5

Linha do Tempo não é dos melhores livros de Chrichton - mas, ainda assim, é bem mais satisfatório do que esta adaptação pouco inspirada.
| Original Score: 3/5
