DVD Review: TIMELINE

by David Blackwell

PLOT:   A Group of college students are faxed through a wormhole back to 1357 France to rescue their colleg professor on the big day of a castle siege.

VIDEO/AUDIO: The movie is presented in 2.35:1 anamorphic widescreen. The colors and blacks are good. The picture is clean and sharp. Not a bad transfer at all. The audio is presented in English and French 5.1 Dolby Digital with the option of English subtitles. The audio is very easy to hear and the music really roars.

SPECIAL FEATURES: There are two documentaries. One is a three part documentary called JOURNEY THROUGH TIMELINE (Setting Time, The Nights of La Roque, and Making Their Own History). The Nights of La Roque shows a member of the production crew looking over photos taken of the castle location to determine how scenes can be shot, how many extras are needed, and how to light it. Also you see footage of a safety meeting and behind-the-scenes footage of the castle siege. Making Their Own History has the highlight of the director making fun of Paul Walker.

THE TEXTURES OF TIMELINE goes into the weapons, clothes, and sets that were built and designed for the movie. The production team created models of the sets before they were constructed. Also included are two theatrical trailers for TIMELINE and forced previews for other PARAMOUNT releases (including a trailer for the upcoming CAPTAIN SKY AND THE WORLD OF TOMORROW).

FINAL ANALYSIS: TIMELINE is an entertaining adventure movie. It is at least worth a rental if you missed this movie in the theaters.
