Looking to compete with the sci-fi blockbusters of the 1980s, "Biggles: Adventures in Time" perverts its source material to transform itself into a high-flying, year-hopping adventure. The 1986 picture doesn't truly adapt the series of novels it's based on, which details the heroism of an ace WWI British pilot. Instead, the production merges the character of Biggles with a time-travel plot that allows the feature a chance to appeal to younger audiences who might pass on the idea of spending time with a stuffy character. It's a strange creative reach that doesn't make much sense as the movie unfolds, but small pockets of spirit remain in "Biggles," which takes time to find its groove, but eventually secures some thrills and spills once the screenplay focuses on wartime suspense. Read the rest at Blu-ray.com
