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

This offers a mystifying look at the future with a mind-bending twist.

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

Director Richard Donner is in good form here, and he patches up the holes in the script by keeping the action moving lickety-split.

All the zoiksy illogic and spinning plot points give Timeline a strange energy.

C'est la 'B'! Timeline is crudely written, haphazardly acted, and improbably fun.

It's shameless, I know, but this movie is nice, simple fun.

It may not break any new ground, but after sitting through years of CGI spectacles, it is refreshing. Sometimes it's fun to just see a movie that knows what it is.

Slick entertainment that does its job, even if no one will remember it six years from now, much less six centuries.

It's a ridiculous, paradox-packed, sci-fi/action contrivance...but I'd be lying if I said I didn't get some guilty pleasure out of this inflated adventure.

Harmless fun with a game cast in the grand tradition of '50s B movies that don't seem to realize how funny their dialogue is.

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.
