In the future, time travel is possible--and lucrative--especially for Charles Hatton (Sir Ben Kingsley), the owner of Time Safari Inc., a travel agency escorting wealthy clients to the Prehistoric Era. Under the seasoned leadership of Dr. Travis Ryer (Edward Burns), clients may hunt dinosaurs if they follow guidelines intended to protect the time line. But when the rules are broken, the hunters return to a markedly different future than the one they left. Now, as "time waves" ripple from the Prehistoric past, through the present and into an uncharted future, Ryer teams up with Sonia Rand (Catherine McCormack), the inventor of time travel technology, to unravel the mystery behind the catastrophic changes that are threatening the very existence of humanity.

Ridiculous at every level. Save your money.
What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this movie is dismally inept: the special effects are laughably bad and the plot is incoherent. What's more, it features violence in various forms: Time travelers shoot and kill dinosaurs, and they're menaced by variously mutated creatures (half primate/half reptile, flying batlike monsters, large roach-like insects). These scenes -- in the dark among trees, in a dark and flooded subway tunnel -- might be frightening for younger viewers. A couple's one-night stand is indicated by his emergence from the bedroom in his boxers, while she appears only partly covered. One character shoots himself in the head (not graphically, but obviously), and another sacrifices himself to a herd of creatures in order to save his friends.
