Product Description

Product Description

Michael Harlan (John Stockwell, Top Gun) has procrastinated on his science project until the last minute, and his teacher (Dennis Hopper, Speed) issues him an ultimatum; turn in a science project or flunk. So Mike scavenges a military base's junk pile for a suitable gizmo to pass off as his project. He finds one...and unwittingly unleashes the awesome power and energy of the unknown. Twisted dimensions and time warps collide to create a whirling vortex that takes the class on a startling adventure back in time and into the future.

Amazon.ca

Faced with not graduating unless he completes his science project, a high school gear-head sneaks into a nearby Air Force base, looking for some gizmo he can pass off as his own invention. What he finds is an alien energy device that rips holes in both time and space, infesting the school with everything from dinosaurs to the Viet Cong. Writer-director Jonathan Betuel tries to mine some of the same veins as Weird Science and Real Genius (all three films were released in 1985) but with less success--mostly due to a slapdash script. The film veers from being The Breakfast Club to WarGames to Rambo, leaping over plot holes all the way. As the hero, John Stockwell is too low-key for his own good, but Danielle Von Zerneck is appealing as his emerging love interest, and Fisher Stevens and Raphael Sbarge do their best to inject some life into the material. Dennis Hopper (as a hippie-dippie science teacher) chews the scenary with gusto--and at one point shows up wearing the costume he wore in Easy Rider. --Geof Miller --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

I first saw this movie when I was four years old; not in the theater, unfortunately, but on video, in the summer of 1986. I used to watch this movie by the hour. It is great! I still watch it a lot nowadays because Anchor Bay Entertainment has now released a (long overdue) widescreen videocassette. Nowadays, the movie is so obscure, underrated, and unheard-of. Given this fact, I have lots of unanswered questions. Why did Disney give up the rights? How did it do at the box office? Was it a hit or a flop? Did Disney disown it because it did bad at the box office?
I highly doubt that we will ever see this movie in theaters again, which is a real shame. It deserves to be seen in theaters again; it is so dynamic, like STAR WARS. It is one of those movies that seems to have been made for viewing in movie theaters only. I can see all of the hard work put into the production: the optical effects, and especially the wonderful music score. This movie is such a classic and it has been overlooked one-too-many times.

The story is good and the cast is decent as well. Who would know that Dennis Hopper would add some comedy relieve. This is one of those sleeper movies like "Adventures in Babysitting" and "The Last Starfighter" that turns out worth your time.
If you like movies like "Explorers", "Goonies", and "Flight of the Navigator" you should enjoy it. This is a movie that can be enjoyed by the whole family. The sets, music, and directing is good. Even the special effects which are a bit dated now are still quite good.
A science project made from a hidden device in a secret military stockpile can lead to some unpredictable results. When the school starts to transform into periods of the Earths history including the dinosaur age, the students must keep on their toes to survive.
No extras with this DVD. Even if there aren't any this is a good price for couple hours of light comedy adventure.

The special effects are great.The character developement isjust so-so but i have to admit this movie has its moments ofhumour and the idea of a flyingsaucer being disassembled by thegovernment at hanger 54(which bythe way is a real location) doesnot seem that really farfetched.Dennis hopper et.al. do a finejob holding our interests andhis ex-hippie type persona(whichhe also used later in "flashback"helped hold together what reallycould only be described as adrive-in saturday night flick youmight have taken your best girlto see back in your high schooldays.If you looking for some simpleescapism his would be one youmight wish to check out.It has been on moratorium forquite a while and i was suprisedto see that Amazon has it-butpleasantly surprised.I ordered myself a copy-can'treally justify it -just missedthe movie.

It is down to the line and if you do nit come up with a good science project you can kiss you high school diploma good by. What luck a nearby abandoned military depot. You guessed it an alien engine is just waiting for the application of a little electricity.

This is what happened to a young lad, Michael Harlan (John Stockwell.) With the help of his friends he discovers new dimensions. There is time enough for adventure and time enough for love Ellie (Danielle von Zerneck.) A vortex sucks up the science teacher. And everyone is threatened. Only the original hand full of friends can curb the problem by fighting their way back in over numerous obstacles to remove the source of energy to the engine.

Can they curb the power before it is too late?
Will we ever see the science teacher again?

And this movie prooves that. I have this on Laserdisc.. and there was no way my collection could be without it. Definitely a comedy of all sorts- dark, light- romantic. You have to love Fisher Stevens catchphrases- I'd watch the movie just for his one-liners. I wish I could turn my high school into a timewarp- From dinosaurs to future invaders- this flick solves conflicts among all time periods. Ever see a dinosaur invade the gym before? If the team of Zucker and Abrahms ever got ahold of this movie watch out. I love this movie because it always makes me laugh- at the world around me- at scifi- or is it laugh with scifi- another classic 80's flick. And this fantastic exploit of adventure are enough to bring out the child in all of us.

It has been years since I have seen this movie. I still remember with fantasy nastalgia the excitement of high school revisited. Teachers that where far out (Dennis Hopper) and a car jock that was a sorry excuse for a student and a honor student that was a misfit groupie. Their combination gave me a feeling of hope and revenge and excitement all at the same time. This movie is a classic that will be one of my favorites for all time. I have been looking for the tape for many years and have ended up with a worn video store version. I am glad I can finally get a good copy.

There is just something about this movie, every time it is on, I have to watch it. It has an excellent plot but it could have been done much better.
A high school kid needs to get an A on his Science project to pass so he goes to an old air force junk yard to look for something to tinker with. He finds an underground storage facility no longer in use. an odd light catches his attention. Security is soon on his tale. He grabs the object and runs. Know one is quite sure with it is, but it is an engine from an alien space craft. when he starts to play with it, all hell breaks loose as time and space are unraveled.
