Forever Young uses a technique for traveling from one era to another via cryogenics. That is, freezing a person for a long period of time. It’s also called suspended animation and stasis. This is not a new technique in the science fiction genre. It was used in The Twilight Zone, Star Trek and comic books.
While viewing this film, I could get over the bad science of how much cell damage would actually occur during the thawing out process. I was already very familiar with this idea from Stan Lee’s story of Captain America coming back to modern times (Ha, 1964) from the 1940s in his story from The Avengers #4, Captain America Lives Again. But in Captain America’s defense, the serum that made him a super soldier, would have prevented him from developing cell damage. But Daniel had no such serum, so if you just let yourself go with this, it’s still a great movie.
