A Sound of Thunder (2005) (part 12 of 13)
Since their SUV was wrecked by the big bats and the last time wave, Ryer and crew decide to get to “the university” by following the subway tracks on foot. When they get down into the tunnel, however, they find that it’s turned into a swamp.
Dr. Rand and Jenny rightly suggest they find another way, but Ryer will have none of this. He says this is the only way, and hops right down into the water. And if you know that the actress who plays Jenny, Jemima Rooper, is from London, you’ll probably notice that her American accent breaks down just a bit in this scene. That’s not really funny or anything, but since I seem to have something of a fixation here, I felt I should mention it.
They all hop into the rancid water and start to wade down the tracks. Good plan, Ryer! There’s no way there could possibly be anything dangerous lurking in the primordial swamp you’re walking through! I sure hope frozen liquid nitrogen guns, as well as time machine hard drives, are waterproof.
