Weak big screen adaption of Michael Cricton's novel of the same name. Archaeologists travel back in time to medieval France to rescue a colleague. Features some of the most wooden performances since Pinnochio. While it's easy to blame the actors for their lackluster performance, a decent script would have helped them out a lot.

This movie is good but different. A group of archaeologists and combat experts led by Chris and use a "3-D fax machine" to time-travel back to France in 1357, in hopes of retrieving Chris's father and returning safely to the present. Fending for themselves against marauding hordes of medieval French warriors at war with the invading British, these semi-intrepid travelers find their body count rising, and the deadline for their return home is rapidly approaching.
