  • Timeline

    A team of archeological students travel through a time machine/worm-hole-creator thingy in order to save their professor who traveled there only to get stuck. What they don’t know is that they’re traveling to a time that is one of the most tumultuous days in history.

    ClearPlay in Action!

    An arm load of expletives are neatly trimmed out of this one but with medium filters you’re going to still see some medieval (non-gory) fighting and battle tactics of flaming canons being shot and flaming arrows etc. There is no sex and only two kissing scenes left in which were pretty clean. I’m going to say you could watch this one with teens older than 14.

    Is Timeline a Waste of Yours?...

    There are only 2 reasons one would voluntarily choose to go out of one’s way to rent this movie. Reason #1 You’re a crazy avid Gerard Butler fan and want see everything he’s ever done, props to him on nearly succeeding in carrying this one along on his own. Reason #2 is that you can find entertainment within entertainment in watching bad actors desperately try to act like good ones. I was in a particularly forgiving mood when I watched this and had a marvelous time chuckling at Francis O’Connor’s over the top reactions over everything (she almost made Paul Walker look like an actor). Plus it was hilarious to watch the faces the actors made when going through the time machine. Are they traveling through time or posing for a roller coaster camera? Who can tell? So while I gave this movie one star I’m adding another star to it just because, if you feel so inclined, there is still some entertainment to be had in making fun of it.
