Product Description


Time-hoppers from the future, led by Cheryl Ladd, are abducting airline passengers about to crash, and transporting them a millennium hence in order to reseed a future blighted by environmental disaster. This is a dangerous business, plagued by the specter of accidentally creating time paradoxes, which could throw the future out of whack. Unfortunately, they've lost a couple of the stunners they use to subdue troublesome passengers, and these fall into the hands of a curious physicist (Daniel J. Travanti) and an investigator for the National Transportation Safety Board (Kris Kristofferson). Cheryl Ladd must retrieve these devices before a time paradox wipes out her world, but manages to complicate things by developing a romance with Kristofferson. All of which is very intriguing, having come from the short story, "Air Raid," by science fiction luminary John Varley, who also is credited with the screenplay. The part about airline abductions to save the disastrous future is straight from the original story, and the rest is expanded (you wouldn't say extrapolated) from it. The results are not very happy. About a third of the film is maddeningly wasted by repeating action from a different point of view. Seems natural when there are disparate timelines to deal with, but here nothing is added by the conceit. Only Travanti turns in a creditable performance as the physicist, bent on proving his theories about the future. He seems hungry for discovery, which is one of the things you want from a science fiction story, that sense of awe. But here it's just, "Aw, shucks!" --Jim Gay

I would have never seen this movie had my girlfriend not have picked it out of the cheapie bin, 'cause she saw it years ago, and was surprised I'd never heard of it.

The plot is about a cop (Kris Kristoperson) who is investigating a plane crash & finds some weird things from the crash site. Time travelers from the future come back to rescue people, but during one of their procedures, something goes wrong and one of them is killed and accidentally drops a futuristic device. Once they return to their future, a paradox shift in the universe rumbles through them and they realize they must send someone back to retrieve the device before someone works out how to use it and 'causes more ripples in the universe. (Creating more paradox's) One of the time travelers is Cheryl Ladd (Charlies Angels) she is sent back to retrieve the device and also try to stop Kris from investigating the plane wreck on a certain day. However when she thinks she failed, she then returns to the future, but if she had of stayed 10 more seconds she would have succeeded, so more ripples occur and so on.

I thought it was interesting to question what would happen if time travel was actually possible. Then depending on WHAT you change in the past, how does that affect the future? I must say it's not as funny as when Homer Simpson traveled through time with his toaster and kept changing things, but on a more serious level I thought it was interesting where this movie went with it's approach.

The special effects aren't too bad, considering it is a late 80's movie. A few people criticize the future scenes as being ugly.... They're supposed to be! The future in this movie is a dirty place, polluted so badly that smoking cigarettes is a breath of fresh air. (Now do you get it?).

This movie is actually better than what others might think. But it requires your complete attention, and for a generation of people who are used to in-your-face MTV type short-attention span stuff, then skip this flick. However, I have shown this DVD on several occasions to groups of friends, and everyone enjoyed trying to figure out what was going on, and were surprised as I was, when time - travel was implicated. Cheryl Ladd was quite good as a cynical flight attendant, and Kris Kristofferson was believable as a man burned out on his job. I only wish Travanti had more to do in this movie. Still, I highly recommend this flick to people who like to think when they watch a scifi flick.

Format: DVD
This movie grabs you from the very first scene, you're in a plane, everything is silent save for the sound of the engines and chatter from the cockpit. It almost seems too quiet, as if everyone on the plane were inexplicably asleep. A frantic air traffic controller tries to warn the crew of the plane that they're on a collision course with another aircraft but it's too late, they've been clipped by this other plane and the crew does their best to get out of this alive.
It turns out there was a reason the passengers were so unusally silent and still... and it's a fascinating ride as you flow through the movie, you feel as though you're a part of the investigation.
There's something strangely satisfying about that, watching a movie about an air disaster and a subsequent investigation from the safety of your couch. I especially like the scene where they are listening to the cockpit recording.
I must've rented this movie enough times to pay for 5 copies before I finally bought it on DVD. My only complaint is that the soundtrack for this movie is not Dolby Digital.

First, let me say that I've been a science fiction aficionado for decades. However, my main interest has been book science fiction because the vast majority of so-called science fiction movies and TV shows have been very light (or nonexistent) on the science and over the top on the fiction (or rather fantasy).

I do give the makers of the movie "Millennium" credit for at least trying to explain such an arcane subject as time travel. Of course, I wouldn't have expected the movie to be as detailed as was the book and it wasn't. The sets depicting the future world were supposed to give a sense of decadence, and they did. I applaud the production designer(s) for not opting for the usual shiny, glitzy "future" - especially in 1989. I don't think they were imaginative enough, but that's a highly subjective appraisal and they were probably on a budget.

Many reviewers have complained about the so-called "flashbacks" showing the same scene from different points of view. That wasn't the director being "artistic." The different points of view were necessary to show that the different characters (primarily Bill Smith and Louise Baltimore) were each at different points on their personal time-lines even though they were in the same room together. For example, After Bill Smith and Louise Baltimore have spent the night together, Bill finds the lost stunner in the wreckage of the airliner that has been deposited in a hangar. He fiddles with it and is paralyzed by it, but he can still breathe and see. After Bill has been lying on the floor for a while, Louise appears from the future with her snatch team. Bill recognizes her immediately, but she does NOT recognize him. This is because their shack-up in the hotel room is in his past, but is in Louise's future - they are at different points in their personal time-lines. And Louise's personal time-line will become even more tangled. As I said in the title to this review, it's a credible attempt.
