Audience Member The dog's name is Einstein! Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/27/23 Full Review Audience Member One of the best TV Films ever made. Great cast, a simple plot and definately a candidate for one of the greatest "What If" genre films. Time Travel to stop a major historic event (JFK's assassination) to prevent a future war (Vietnam). I cannot recommend this film enough and I hope one day it is redone for the big screen where it belonged in the first place. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/21/23 Full Review Audience Member Interesting concept for a movie although perhaps not the best executed. A professor in a university works out how to time travel and Robert Hayes goes back to Dallas in November 1962 to a certain book depository to stop the assasination of Kennedy. This is in the hope that he can prevent the Vietnam war and hence save his brother. Works on the assumption that there was only one gunman (highly debatable) and then Lee Harvey Oswald blames Robert Hayes for the killing. Enjoyable enough film but has a bit of a TV movie feel to it. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/22/23 Full Review Audience Member Un sympatique film sur le voyage dans le temps. Un frère veut empéchar la mort de son frère au Vietnam, en empéchant la mort de Kennedy... s'ensuivent plein de périple Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/17/23 Full Review Read all reviews
