Editorial Reviews

Time Changer may be a little strident in its core message (i.e., ethics don't count unless they're backed by the force of Christ), but as an above-average feature for the Christian market, it's pretty agreeable. D. David Morin stars as a late-19th-century Bible professor named Carlisle, whose efforts to publish a book arguing that morals can be taught independent of Christ's teachings is denounced by one Dr. Anderson (Gavin Macleod), a board member at Carlisle's seminary. Anderson, who happens to be in possession of a time machine, sends Carlisle to the year 2001, where the latter quickly discovers the pitfalls of a secular world with relative morality and no absolute (i.e., Christian) standards. Time Changer's seasoned supporting cast, including Paul Rodriguez, Jennifer O'Neill, and Hal Linden, bring a professional gloss to the film that helps counter its thematic single-mindedness, while director Rich Christiano serves up some passable science fiction to go with all the preaching. --Tom Keogh

5.0 out of 5 stars An Important Message of Our Age from the Past September 13, 2003
Format:VHS Tape
In the history of film, few Christian movies have really made an impact with a profound message like 'Time Changer' has since it's release. It's a mixture in the genre of Christian, sci-fi and drama. In the year 1890 a Bible professor, Russell Carlisle (D. David Morin) has written a new manuscript, "The Changing Times." Carlisle's book is about to be unanimously endorsed from the Grace Bible Seminary board until his colleague Dr. Norris Anderson (Gavin MacLeod) raises an objection. If we remove Jesus' authority. There are no standard of living. Satan's goal is to remove Jesus Christ from human morality from all aspects of life. Dr. Anderson believes that what Carlisle has written could greatly affect the future of coming generations. Anderson persistance of a sceptical Carlisle journey into the future pays off. Using a secret time machine, Anderson transports Carlisle over 100 years into the future to the year 2002.
In the future, Carlisle is offered a glimpse of where his beliefs will lead. Once Carlisle enterd into our present time, he experiences things that shock and dismay him. He meets Eddie Martinez (Paul Rodriquez), a good guy who says it's all he needs to get by. Carlisle quickly learn the way of modern society. He visits a modern day church and witnesses it's new doctrine of teaching. Carlisle also visits the University Library on the advisory of Dr. Anderson to meet and tlak with Michelle Bain (Jennifer O'Neill). His meeting with her is an eye-opener. In the meantime he meets with some other interested parties while attending a movie at a local theater. During their conversation, Carlisle gives these two fellows some lead about his past and a clue that send them in an investigative trail about Carlisle's mysterious origins.

5.0 out of 5 stars That was surprisingly GOOD!... October 25, 2003
So how would YOU feel meeting a throw-forward from the 1890's? Or, how would you feel if you were transported forward 100 years into the future...
Time Changer, an amazing new film directed by Christian producer Rich Christiano, is finally on DVD and home video. This movie is a surprisingly well produced and well done film by Five & Two pictures, and boasts some surprisingly big actors featured in the film.
PLOT: Dr. Russell Carlisle (D. David Morin), a professor at Grace Bible Seminary, has just completed a new book entitled The Changing Times. He hopes to secure approval and endorsement from the board of directors at the Seminary. However, one board member, Dr. Norris Anderson (Gavin McLeod, of "Mary Tyler Moore" and "Love Boat" fame) disapproves of the work, on grounds of the book's premise that the teachings of Christ can be taught apart from the NAME of Christ. This disturbs Dr. Carlisle, and he resolves to fight the Unanimous rule the Seminary holds for any book endorsement. His efforts are rejected by the Dean of the college, played by Hal Linden (Of "Barney Miller" fame). Carlisle avoids Dr. Anderson for a while, despite Anderson's pleas for him to come to his home and discuss the matter. At last, Russell relents and goes to Norris's house, where Norris shows Russell his convenient time machine, located in his barn. (Those things DO come in handy from time to time) Norris rockets Russell more than a hundred years into the future to see the moral deprivation of the age. Russell is blown away by the absence of belief in Jesus in the world, let alone the culture shock of the 21st century. He realizes the terrible mistake he made in thinking God's moral law can be laid down without the authority of God's name behind it, when trying to law down this law and getting only "Says who?

4.0 out of 5 stars ED March 30, 2003
I personally enjoyed this movie. Some parts of it (as in most movies) were dry, others were very well done. The message this movie sends to people, or at least to me, is that if you're going to say that something is wrong then you must state the reason it is wrong. In this movie they tell children not to do certain things because they are wrong, but not why and the main character finally realizes that he must tell them that Jesus said not to do them; that they are wrong and that is why he must not do those things. Today's society (the future in the movies case) was well portrayed and although we do not always agree with everything that they said is wrong in the movie like PDA and "white lies" it was still over-all one of the best "Christian/preacher/message" movies that I've seen in a long time. This movie sends a positive message and even if you don't agree with it it is there. The times have changed, but can you change the times?

5.0 out of 5 stars A very good buy! April 13, 2004
A Kid's Review
This movie was very entertaining and true. It IS true that we are straying away from the church and all of the godly principles that we built this nation on. This is not a joke movie, and a movie that really everyone should see. It is a good movie, and has some funny moments. You see, the main character has traveled from 1890, and over 100 years later and he doesn't know what a remote control, computer, etc. etc. is. Whenever someone mentions one of those items, he will say, "Computer." "Remote control." It is a really good movie and a great buy! It is very true that we have fallen away from God, by not going to church, not reading the Bible, not going by the principles of the Bible. This movie is definitely a good flick, one that you will need to see more than one time and is a very good film. It is put together very well, and the special effects are very cool! The cast is great, the message is great, well...I think you get the picture...the movie is great! I definitely recommend this movie if you want a good movie without so much trash and junk blaring through the screen.
