Timeline

An archaeologist (Billy Connolly) is recruited by a vaguely sinister corporation to cross through a time portal to 14th-century France, and after something goes amiss, his son (Paul Walker) and his devoted students must track him down without disrupting the course of history. This big-budget adventure is based on a recent Michael Crichton thriller, though its premise is too stale to instill the sense of wonder critical to great sci-fi. Director Richard Donner (Lethal Weapon) keeps the action pumping, and production designer Dan Dorrance optimizes the movie's Renaissance Faire cred with an impressive re-creation of a medieval castle in the Dordogne. With Frances O'Connor and Gerard Butler. PG-13, 116 min.
