Flashback Friday- Timeline (2003)

Time travel has been a major component of science fiction since the beginning of the genre. But, like anything else, there is drawback.

In the 2003 film, Timeline, a team of archaeologists and military experts travel back in time from the 21st century to the 14th century. Their goal is to rescue Chris Johnston’s (the late Paul Walker) father. The issues they face are equally thorny: a time crunch to return to the present in one piece and the knowledge that Britain is going to invade France.

Can they accomplish their mission and return home in the same condition that they left and can they retrieve Chris’s father without affecting history?

This film is interesting. It is not completely science fiction, but it has elements of the genre. It is not a historical film, but a large portion of the film is set in 14th century France.

While Timeline is not the best film I’ve ever seen, it’s not the worst film that I’ve ever seen.

Do I recommend it? I say maybe, but someone else might say yes.
