Great Film overall
A story that's too fascinating to pass by...
Strong acting helps the film overcome an uncertain premise and create characters that hold our attention absolutely.
Keeps you on your toes and let's figure some stuff as well.
A futuristic sci-fi great premise. With no futuristic sci-fi imagery at all. Needs to meet in the middle with altered carbon.
A tv series about people travelling backwards in time from the future. It's been done... With varying levels of success. Continuum? Good. 12 Monkeys? Terrible.Fortunately for Travelers "the mission" isn't the entirety of the show. It also helps that it's not framed as a giant conspiracy by a shadow organisation the protagonists have to fight against. There's deeper character development and relationships that make you care about what happens to these people.Firstly I have to give props to Eric McCormack here. To be able to shake off Will Truman and be able to deliver a completely different, well-rounded character in McLaren is impressive..Secondly there's some pretty impressive young actors in this that aren't completely overshadowed by the gravitas that McCormack brings.And finally you can't go past a team like Brad Wright (creator), Matrtin Wood (director) and co. These are people that delivered 15 + plus years of great television with the Stargate franchise. It's clear they know what the hell they're doing.(It's also super fun to play "How Many Canadian Sci Fi TV Shows Has That Actor Been In".)Bottom line. Well worth you're time.
Travelers had me hooked from the first episode. It has a whole host of great characters, each portrayed by first class actors.The storyline is believable and doesn't contain too many holes. Unlike many similar programs the quality continues into the second series. Good direction and cinematography round this up to first class.If you like sci-fi this is one of the best things to watch on Netflix.
