this film is not bad it's one of those "saturday afternoon or late night" Films you see on TV. stars the guy from "Tremors"
this one is kinda like the one about the navy ship that goes into a time hole only smaller. IMO
Liked this as a kid, but it's probably been 25+ years since I've seen it. I wonder if I'd still like it. Fred Ward is one of my favorite character actors. I liked him in "The Right Stuff," which is another movie that deserves a blu-ray, and "Remo Williams" was always a favorite of mine.
