Like an extended episode if the Outer Limits
Reviewed in the United States on June 26, 2017
I had seen this movie when it came out in 1980 and it was one of the motivators to encourage me to join the U.S. NAVY. Lo and behold I wound up working on F-14s just like the ones in the movie. I had gotten the special edition two DVD set 10 years ago and after getting the bluray version I was blown away. I thought it would be slightly better but this remastered version is just as it had come out a few months ago. Picture quality and sound are superb, and thus disc includes the extra features as in the DVD set. Even the story stands up well even if the technology depicted in the movie is from the 80s. As with most time travel stories, it brings thoughts of 'what if' and the changes you could make, or if you should, if you could go back in time. The closing scene, along with the soundtrack, makes you think back of the curve ball twist endings of TV shows like the Twilight Zone or The Outer Limits. If you've never seen this film, you owe it to yourself to undertake this fun, and thought provoking, thrill ride.
