Jack Deth no tranza con nadie


Hoy en dia decir el nombre de Charles Band es como decir Roger Corman, ya que Charles Band se ha ganado con el paso del tiempo, el estar a la altura de aquél; ejerció y ejerce como: director, productor, productor ejecutivo, escritor, inclusive hasta actuó. Alla, por el año 1985, dirigiria una pelicula, que con el paso del tiempo se convertiria en un clasico de la ciencia ficción de la clase B, escrita por Danny Bilson y Paul De Meo, y dirigida por Charles Band, Trancers es, sin duda, una entretenida y buena pelicula de ciencia ficción, repleta de buenas dosis de accion, buenos dialogos, asi como tambien buenos y inolvidables momentos, como cuando el personaje de Jack Deth, interpretado por Tim Thomerson, bucea por una sumergida ciudad de Los Angeles, en busca de antigüedades . A proposito, el nombre de dicha ciudad pasa a ser: Lost Angeles.
Jack Deth es enviado desde el S. XXIII al S. XX, para proteger a los lideres de su tiempo de los trancers, unos zombies controlados mentalmente, ya que los mismos tienen la clara intención de hacer desaparecer a dichos lideres, mediante la destrucción de sus antepasados. Con solo su ingenio y un par de chiches a lo Bond, Jack Deth tendra que ingeniarselas para detener a sus enemigos.
¿ Podra ? Pero por supuesto, sino no seria Jack Deth.
La historia de Bilson y De Meo, esta llena de giros imaginativos, los cuales incluyen toda clase de elementos que otorgan a la pelicula un halo de atmosfera ensoñadora, como por ejemplo el suero que permite viajar a Deth por el tiempo, el cual regresa la mente del sujeto al cuerpo de un antepasado. Tim Thomerson, sin tomarse muy en serio a su personaje, es quién logra darle el ingrediente justo que necesita la pelicula; por su parte, la actriz Helen Hunt esta muy bien en su papel.
Entre muchas cosas, al actor Tim Thomerson se le pudo ver en las siguientes peliculas y capitulos para television:
