Jack Deth is a kind of cop/bounty hunter in the bleak Los Angeles of the future. He's become obssessed with chasing Whistler - an evil criminal who uses powerful hypnotic powers to convert people into zombie like creatures known as trancers. Whistler has managed to escape through time travel and is loose in 1980s L.A. but Deth is on his trail.

The first film in the cult science fiction franchise (a total of six "Trancers" films have been released to date) has a high fun factor for fans of B movies. The ideally cast Tim Thomerson, in a definitive role, plays Jack Deth, a "trooper" from the 23rd century who is sent back 300 years to inhabit the body of his ancestor, and therefore be able to stop his nemesis Whistler (a nicely intense Michael Stefani), who preceded him in the trip back to the 20th century to take over *his* ancestor's (a police detective) body. Joining Deth on his mission is feisty love interest Lena (Helen Hunt, sexy and appealing in an early role); Deth needs to locate Hap Ashby (Biff Manard), a washed up ballplayer turned skid row bum, whose offspring will in time produce one of the leaders of the future world.

The screenplay, by Danny Bilson and Paul De Meo, may indulge in some standard fish-out-of-water humor as Deth adjusts to 20th century life, but it's still rather witty and contains some gems of dialogue along the way. Particularly impressive is the look lent to the future world on a meager budget, with one good idea of the "Lost Angeles" of the future existing only as an underwater locale. As a matter of fact, this little film *always* has a great look going for it, and it's just so damn snappy and zippy that it races along and ends up running only about 76 minutes long. And it's so much fun that one may very well wish it were longer.
