It comes up short in both plot and quality.

Timeline treats the past like an amusement park, offering mid-level thrills and nothing more.

Bad history. Bad science. Bad acting. Bad movie.

Just once I'd like to see a time-travel movie inspired by true curiosity about the past, instead of by a desire to use it as a setting for action scenes.

This movie is in desperate need of a pulse.

Lacks any force or energy to release it from the pull of total mediocrity.

Weakly entertaining Middle Ages fantasy.

If this were a good movie, we would cheer for the students to dodge the flaming arrows. This isn't a good movie.

Richard Donner brings us the latest Crighton film, sending Paul Walker and Gerard Butler back to Medieval times. The book was medoicre at best... this adaptation is insipid.

Time-travel tale is a so-so action flick that plays like Jurassic Park ... but without the dinosaurs. Or stars. Or excitement.

December 2, 2003
It's a dull spectacle that makes a drive out to Carver for King Richard's Faire seem more appealing.

It's like Back to the Future without the laughs.
November 25, 2003
Even if you're willing to overlook the chintzy sets, low-wattage stars and goonball premise, Timeline doesn't present a convincing portrait of what it might be like to go back 650 years.

like a plus-size episode of Sliders.

At two hours and even with the rushed feel it still feels overly long and worst of all -- cheap.

It's not ambitious, but neither is it lazy. It works hard at its dumbness, and it's eager to please. For what it's worth, it's the most enjoyable bad movie of the year.

Timeline is offensively bad.

November 25, 2003
By turns risibly puerile and purely risible, the screenplay groans under the weight of its multiple platitudes.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/5
December 15, 2003
A big, dumb action fantasy that could be easily digestible and provide some rollicking Saturday matinee entertainment. Outside of the big and dumb part, it fails on almost every other level.

In the end, keeping score of most of the ensuing cross-cultural mayhem is about as involving as Xeroxing for two hours.
