Hoping to alter the events of the past, a 19th century inventor instead travels 800,000 years into the future, where he finds humankind divided into two warring races.
Crucially missing a hot tub.
The Time Machine (2002) is actually a pretty decent remake, until the final 15 minutes completely derail and become something different entirely. Honestly, the action in the climax was so boring, It could be used as a sleep remedy.
Guy Pierce is awesome though.
Stars off good, turns bad fast, just when I think guy Pearce makes a lot of great choices with what films he stars in he goes and does something like lockout and the time machine though the film the time machine was made before all these films like iron man 3, LA confidential, memento and lawless it still counts its just not guy Pearce's is number one performance obviously so its boring characters and rubbish costume design also have something in common with its special effects but giuy Pearce though its not his best performance he is still good in this film and that earns the film at least one full star but definitely not a performance worth five full stars.
H. G. Wells deserved better than this. And so do you.
The themes of responsibility/fate are feeble. The dialogue is rubbish. Guy Pearce is bland as the Time-Traveller, and Jeremy Irons is preposterous as Jareth the Goblin King. There are thousands of plotholes (how can you learn spoken English from written signs?). And the problematic racial coding of the future society has been sidestepped by making the Eloi nebulously pan-afro-asiatic, so the Time-Traveller can turn up to be their saviour, which - I'm sure you'll agree - fixes everything.
In spite of these obvious moronities, I still kinda like this version. It's pretty short, and rattles along crazily without ever seeming embarrassed (even when it should be). It also serves up lashings of post-apocalyptic pathos: a decaying hologram, the shattering of…
Film full of potential, but is an awful train wreck, The Time Machine is one of those films that has an ambitious idea, but wastes it due to the fact that the script is lazily written, the cast though impressive just don’t deliver anything great, and the film feels tiresome, strained and unimpressive. I really wanted to enjoy the film, and though the idea was good, the execution was poor. I really hated the finished film, and this a forgettable affair that is a pure waste of time. Don’t go in expecting a wonderful film, everything here is over the top, poorly constructed and just doesn’t have that spark to really make the story take off. As it is, it’s…
The movie was a great adaptation of the novel. Considering source material was quite thin. The use of different cameras and cinematography to convey different eras of time was quite clever. Was a awesome movie? Eh. Just alright.
This version of the H.G.Wells story wanders much more from the original than the previous one does. It could be argued it's a different story altogether that just happens to follow a similar theme. That in no way diminishes this film which is very much its own interpretation. Special effects are nicely balanced and impressive. Visually enchanting with plenty of eye candy. A likeable enough romp through time.

Springende Orks. Vergiftete Pfeile, die überhaupt keinen Schaden anrichten. Eine Moral. New York mit britischem Akzent?! Bitte?!
Yeah it's not very good. No surprise there.
Danes With Wolves + time travel = The Time Machine. I like the concept of going 800,000 years into the future, and the desire to change the past and not being able to is something very relatable, but it all feels so blah and second rate. The special effects are properly dodgy, and for some reason humans have not evolved in that 800,000 years. What's the deal with that?
Edit: I of course meant Dances With Wolves, but Imma leave that in because the idea of a film called Danes With Wolves is making me laugh.
Heed this warning of self-destruction on a species and individual level. Mwah ha ha!
Not finished yet. Highly underappreciated. Samaria Mumba stuns
Watchable, if you have spare hour or so, watch it,but i can think of a lot more films i would recommend before this.
Every film that has ever been nominated for an Academy Award in any category. Enjoy!
For my dissertation. I'm going for a more metaphysical rather than sci-fi genre approach to time travel, hence the inclusion…
