All too often time travel can be a good way to leave an audience wishing it could go back to the past and choose another film, but director Hoblit makes this a worthy journey. Billed as a sci-fi caper, this one's more of an engaging whodunit in which Quaid tries to prevent a string of murders with the help of his grown-up kid, Caviezel. Due to some quirky solar formation, father and son are able to speak to one another 30 years apart via a ham radio, with each other's actions often leading to life-and-death consequences.
Braugher is back as a homicide detective--though his role here is not as juicy as his Homicide character--trying to sort the whole thing out. Set against the '69 Mets' World Series win, this is a first-rate, well-acted drama that will be worth watching again another 30 years from now.
