London Bridge, London, 1888: Jack the Ripper (Paul Rossilli) is shot and killed and falls into River Thames.

1985: The London Bridge has since moved to Lake Havasu, Arizona, as part of a tourist attraction, and when the last (original) stone is added to the bridge ... a terrible murder happens. Then another one. Then yet another, the local librarian (Adrienne Barbeau), and she was said to have a date with an Englishman that evening. And when an Englishman is actually tracked down who has been seen at the scene of the crime whose profile might fit that of a serialkiller, he's promptly arrested. The audience of course knows better already ...

Don (David Hasselhoff) has been transfered from Chicago to Lake Havasu after he shot dead a kid he wrongly thought attacked him, also for the relative calm of working in the countryside - but of course, a murder was not what the doctors ordered, let alone more than one. When he's not investigating crime himself though, he's interested in true crime stories, and thus is an expert on Jack the Ripper ... and he can't help but seeing the many parallels between the recent killings and the Jack the Ripper killing spree, which is only corroborated by the fact that the knife used and the wardrobe of the killer seem to be about a century old, according to lab reports. His first theory is of course it's a copycat killer - but once the guy above is arrested, Don's no longer so sure and thinks the real Jack the Ripper has somehow returned - even his girlfirend (Stepfanie Kramer) doesn't believe him, yet he and Don's partner (Randolph Mantooth) help Don set up a trap for who actually is the real Jack the Ripper, a trap so fool-proof it almost springs on themselves, as the Ripper manages to overcome Don's partner and take the girlfriend hostage - but just in time, Don overcomes his aversion against shooting people (he had since that incident in Chicago) and shoots Jack the Ripper dead (again) ...


Bridge Across Time is one of those made-for-TV movies that really hasn't all that much going for it: Sure, it's based on an interesting premise, but the script as such is less interested in making anyting out of that premise than to establish a few standard TV characters with standard issues, and tone down whatever promise the concept may hold to TV-typical situations, and not only fails to give a (within genre limitations) believable explanations for what's going on, but also fails to follow its main character's conclusions to at least make this a good supernatural murder mystery. Instead it treats us to a few too many soap opera mainstays to keep this interesting, and to a positively disappointing finale.

Not really worth one's while, really.
