    Tim Thomerson is terrific as the returning Jack Deth, yet he is surrounded by Shakespearean rejects who wouldn't even last five minutes in a Dumas novel. The pains of carrying this film way heavy on the character of Deth as he must talk in this film with characters like Prospero and Caliban. Caliban is the lead villain in this film where his kind of Trancers are vampiric who suck the lifeforce from the humans on the planet(when the humans turn white they're in the "safe zone", but if the color reaches blue then red during an uncontrollable feeding it's "uh oh"). Jack Deth had become a time cop, traveling through the boundaries of time and space, working for Stephen Macht who finds "rifts" and anomalies in certain times. So Deth goes where he is needed because if there's a mess needing cleaning, Jack's the man for the job. On route for another job, this creature who manifests itself on board Jack's time ship causes an accidental crash onto this medieval planet which looks like a small patch of area with a castle. Caliban is shown here by Clabe Hartley to be a towering presence who strikes fear in everyone under his rule. Humans can not stop him and his great power outmatches anyone who dares face him. Yep, Jack Deth winds up in this place and now poses a threat to Caliban. That's about as easy as the convoluted, confusing film gets. There's this old wizard whose prophesies spelled out Deth's arrival to the planet not to mention his artistic rendering was put on paper by the old timer hooded as if just coming from "Star Wars:Episode 1". Deth seems to represented in this film as a savior for the people, but if anyone saw how he handled a sword against Caliban might try thinking twice. It's hard to watch really. To be honest, Deth is perfectly suited for the urban sci-fi waters of LA, but in a sword and sorcery adventure, he looks out of place. Thomerson still makes this nonsense fun to watch and his face down with whomever comes at him is always thrilling. The dialog is really horrendous{I believe one character in the castle says finding Jack Deth will be like "looking for a needle in a haystack"..I kid you not},especially when Deth and Stacie Randal's "first" Lyra have a spat about how they act to each other. I'm pretty sure Thomerson would probably enjoy starring in a couple of higher quality pictures, but is seemingly stuck in poopers like this film where his charisma has to take up the slack.
