Movie Reviews

If you love happy endings, you'll love this DVD
Judi Rayner | Kissimmee, FL USA | 10/30/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The topic of time travel and one's ability to use it to change the past (and, therefore, the future) is always fascinating. I personally like the idea that, as they say in The Terminator series, "the future is not set." While Corbin Bersen's acting may not be top of the line, he's actually not the main character and does a reasonable job as a father whose son has been kidnapped. I can't say much more about the storyline without giving it away except, of course, that it has a happy ending. This movie is in no ways hard SF, and those looking for it will not like the movie. But for those looking for an interesting thought and a "feel-good" movie, this it is."

"THE TOMORROW MAN breaks all the preconceived notions on time travel, the continuum, etc. In this movie, we find an agency that plans to use time travel to change crucial mistakes of the past, (e.g., Hitler, Watergate, etc.), without any resulting changes in what those alterations could bring. One of the characters even says so, that all that time travel bullcrap is just that.
Anyway, with this clarified, I found TOMORROW MAN a wonderfully entertaining and involving movie. Corbin Bernsen stars as Max Klein, a typical macho father, who believes his young son should be raised just as he was. In other words, spare the rod and you have a wimpy child. Bernsen is thrown into the maelstrom of time travel when his son from thirty years in the future, returns and kidnaps himself to save himself from his father's future abuse. Cop Beth Kennedy in a wonderfully self-parodying performance enlists Bernsen's help to catch his son, as he is now a kidnaper, murderer, bank robber, etc. Morgan Rusler plays the Brian of the future, and he is one of the strangest looking actors I've seen, and not altogether a good actor, but his unique physical appearance (kind of a human Dopey) does manage to evoke a little sympathy, although his actions in the end of the film justify the need to get rid of him. Jeanne Cooper (Bernsen's real-life mama) plays his wife in the future, and she does an admirable job in conveying the hurt she experienced while dealing with the abusive Bernsen. What makes the movie work is Bernsen's duplicity; Kennedy's off color remarks; Cooper's ability to play a role her own age, unglamorous, and the writer's desire to give Bernsen's character a second chance.
It's low budget all the way, but it also has a heart, and I was pleasantly surprised at how good it made me feel.
Not a classic, but worth the time."
Sci fi with a heart

"A must-see. If you liked the heartfelt episodes of the original "The Twilight Zone," you'll love "The Tomorrow Man." The story grabs you from the first minute, cast is terrific, and the direction is first rate. Highly recommended!"
Many facets to this superb film

"The Tomorrow Man is much more than just a simple Sci-Fi Time Travel movie. It is a study of gross human sin (Man's inhumanity toward man) and ultimately one man's repentance via the use of Time Travel.

Corbin Bernsen does an outstanding job of portraying a rock solid man of integrity with a heart of gold but lacking the ability to relate to and understand others. I ended up both loving and hating this character, as well as thoroughly identifying with him, which is why I loved this movie. Excellent job Mr. Corbin Bernsen, that's why you're one of my favorite actors, and a darn fine Q if I do say so. The movie ends in such a way as to spread love and joy to the entire world.

I stand up and applaud this fine film while thanking God for such a finely made movie. Thanks God! (Spoken while pointing both index fingers toward the Heavens!)"
