#123movies #fmovies #putlocker #gomovies #solarmovie #soap2day Watch Full Movie Online Free – In this case, a group of archaeologists and combat experts led by Paul Walker and Frances O’Connor use a “3-D fax machine” (so much for technobabble!) to time-travel back to France in 1357, in hopes of retrieving Walker’s father and returning safely to the present. No such luck! 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.
Plot: A group of archaeological students become trapped in the past when they go there to retrieve their professor. The group must survive in 14th century France long enough to be rescued.

a lot of fun when taken in perspective
I must admit, Paul Walker being listed as a lead did rather turn me off from this movie. As far as I can tell, he’s almost Keanu Reeves caliber in terms of being chosen solely for looks and not for any ability whatsoever. However, my intense respect for Gerard Butler’s little recognized talent, and having nothing to do, led me to renting this movie tonight. I must say, I had a good time. The plot wasn’t really followed through in many points, and there were a few really glaringly off moments. But it was fun. And that’s what it was meant to be, fun. So as long as you keep in mind that this movie is not up there to win any academy award’s and just relax in the entertainment potential in has, you’ll have a great time. However, Paul Walker is still nothing more than an attractive face.
The movie is fine, but treat yourself and read the book too
Based on some of the other comments I was expecting to hate this movie. I didn’t, but I see why the reviews seem so negative. There are so many things to pick at, and no real bright spots to talk up.
It really wasn’t that bad. It wasn’t great, but it’s worth a rental. I’m not sure I would have felt I got my money’s worth in the theater.
I’m sure it was a tough chore to convert the original story to a 2-hour movie script. They had to take several liberties and condense quite a bit to do so. Unfortunately, that affected the flow and the movie ends up being a little choppy. How and why they go back in time is pretty well cut out of the movie and without any detail the believability is nil. The story boils down to a pretty standard chase and explosion thriller set in the middle ages.
Definitely treat yourself to a read of the book the movie is based on. Like any book, the depth of characterization is so much more rich and interesting than what comes through in the movie. Once you get past the introductory technical jargon to set up the story it is a real page turner.
