The two men must now work together, 30 years apart, to find the murderer before he strikes so that they can change history—again. —IMDb

A feel-good movie that is tense, heartwarming, imaginative, and thrilling. I have never met a person who didn't like this movie - it's rough enough to stay realistic, but never cheap or exploitative. It's not artsy, but it's well cast, solidly written, and refreshingly unpretentious.
