    You have to laugh when the poster showcases equipment the lead character will never wear. The film was not the worst, but it was not the guilty pleasure I had expected. I wanted to enjoy this film and for the first twenty minutes I thought I was on the right track. The music is comedic at the diner, it sets the tone for the rest of the film, this is not serious and appears to be a studio film ahead of all the studio films now. This had potential to be something more. The film has some fun and seeing a young Helen Hunt in action was an interesting surprise. 23/09/2018.

    Tim 'king of the sci-fi B-movie' Thomerson is again in yet another time travelling sci-fi flick and again he's a cop with a really good name...meet 'Jack Deth'. Yep another cracker alright, this film makes Pyun's films look like mega budget affairs with top class acting. There really isn't much I can be positive about here, its not even enjoyable as a daft B-movie like 'Dollman'. Terrible effects with dreadful acting and some almost Ed Wood style moments of corn and action...plus the plot is surreal and incomprehensible at times. Look out for Helen Hunt and Thomerson with dark hair! amazingly Thomerson acted in another four more of these with Helen Hunt. On the plus side the electro synth musical score is really good and quite haunting. It really adds a touch of emotion to the film even though there is no emotion to be had because its so low budget and cheesy. Love the films poster art too.

    An okay sci-fi action thriller, with an average cast, and a predictable ending. It has some good scenes, but it could have been a lot better.

    I can't decide which is the more craptastic Blade Runner knockoff; this or "Runaway" starring Tom Seleck and his mustache. And I'm also not sure what exactly it is that inspired so many sequels but I think there is something to be said about the swagger and conviction of Tim Thomerson's performance. Both he and Helen Hunt lend a certain lovable humanity to an otherwise ridiculous film, making this time capsule of all that was wrong with 80's sci-fi (and the 80's in general) seem almost bearable. Unlike similar futuristic action flicks, Trancers doesn't even bother going through the motions. It's so predictable and throwaway in nature that it almost laps itself and transforms into something unique...almost.
