    You'll be checking your watch a lot during Timeline. Though most of the cast is strong and the movie has moments of suspense, ultimately the mystery in this action thriller is so far-fetched it's ludicrous. show more

    Timeline has negative energy to burn. There's even less of it by the end than at the beginning. show more

    Jack Mathews New York Daily News

    An instant contender for cult status on the midnight-movie circuit, where lines like "Do we look like quantum wormhole specialists?" will be given the respect they deserve. show more

    There's something light and insubstantial about this movie. It almost floats away as you watch it. show more

    Roger Ebert Chicago Sun-Times

    I felt too much of the movie consisted of groups of characters I didn't care about, running down passageways and fighting off enemies and trying to get back to the present before the window of time slams shut. show more

    Liam Lacey The Globe and Mail (Toronto)

    Plays out like a 1950s B-movie with a fat special-effects budget. Brain-numbing dialogue, incoherent action and glaring improbabilities aside, it's a bearable combination of sci-fi paranoia and historical fantasy that drags modern viewers, and the robotic hero of "The Fast and the Furious" movies, Paul Walker, back to the centre of the Hundred Years War. show more
