"[T]here are some great touches -- like the fact that Swann never seems to realize he's in the 19th century." -- Grade: B+

"Ward is never less than believable as a gruff-but-plucky guy who could be plopped down anywhere and get the job done." -- Grade: B
Fred Ward stars in this early 1980s science fiction movie as Lyle Swann, a motorcross racer who, while traveling through Mexico on his bike, gets caught in a time warp and sent back to the 1870s. Unaware that anything has happened, Swann soon finds himself nearly out of gas and finds the nearest town. Though the locals express fear and confusion when he approaches them in his racing gear and asks where the nearest gas station is, he still doesn't realize that anything has happened. Unfortunately, he runs into a gang of criminals who not only rape and kill at will, but take him for a demon.
