Trivia

When Joe talks to his mom in the kitchen, it reads 'Eieren' (Eggs in Dutch) and 'Thee' (Tea in Dutch) on some labels in the kitchen. See more »

Goofs

Laura is pushed off the rooftop about 4 seconds after Joe, giving them an initial vertical separation of about 260 feet, which would rapidly increase until they both reached terminal velocity. However, on the way down we see they're only about 10 feet apart. See more »

Laura: What do we do now?
A.T.: Try not to die.

Prosaic, insufficiently-budgeted reworking of Heinlein's "Glory Road"
29 April 2009 | by insightstraightSee all my reviews

Other than the obviously older Rutger Hauer as a clue, I was astounded to find that this film was from 1996, it has such an 80s feel. And the uniformly egregious songs had a bad-80s feel as well.

The genesis of this film seems evident: someone wanted to make a film of Heinlein's "Glory Road", discovered the rights to that work were too expensive, and had a lackey write a screenplay with many similarities but which could be filmed in LA and environs.

Rutger Hauer plays it straight and generally classes things up, but the film tends to bog down when he is not around. Andrea Roth is decorative and tries hard, but she is no Empress of the Twenty Universes.

Even for a fantasy work, there are too many inconsistencies and plot conveniences for the film to be enjoyable for me. I am willing to suspend disbelief in order to be entertained, but not to have sloppy plot devices hang disbelief by the neck until dead.

If you want a good cross-dimensional story, go read "Glory Road". Then hope, as I do, that someone who understands the appeal of that story can get their hands on a budget sufficient to do a worthy film version of it.
