Tibor Takacs is the guy who once directed the fun, cheesy kid's horror flick THE GATE back in the 1980s. Ever since he's seemed to pride himself in churning out one cheesy B-movie after another, and NOSTRADAMUS is a case in point. It's an entirely ridiculous sci-fi thriller in which a homicide detective and his colleagues find themselves battling time-travelling killer French monks who are hell-bent on bringing Nostradamus into the modern era.

With shades of TERMINATOR 2, THE X-FILES, and even THE MATRIX, NOSTRADAMUS is a very silly film that has little to do with the prophet of legend. Instead it's an entirely ordinary B-movie, with poor CGI effects and some very cheesy action. The plot is very slight, which means the narrative is padded out with boring romantic sub-plots and the like; plus there are no interesting cast members. Generally this film is a dud and one best forgotten.
