Trancers

Trancers works out of a central idea closely akin to The Terminator. That is where resemblances end. This film in no way can match the Arnold Schwarzenegger vehicle - in gritty action, wit and technical knowhow.

Trancers works out of a central idea closely akin to The Terminator. That is where resemblances end. This film in no way can match the Arnold Schwarzenegger vehicle – in gritty action, wit and technical knowhow.

Plot centers on Angel City 2247 AD. The ruins of LA, as it exists today, lie below the sea following a catastrophic earthquake. A sinister mystic, Martin Whistler (Michael Stefani), threatens the peace with his legion of controlled trancers.

Whistler retreats in time to LA 1985 with a plan to murder the ancestors of the rulers of Angel City, thus ensuring that the rulers cease to exist. Trooper Jack Deth (Tim Thomerson) is sent back to stop him. He is aided by Leena (Helen Hunt), his guide in the ‘strange world’ of today.

Only Hunt in the femme role breaks through a script that rarely rings new.
