The Time Machine
The greatest adventure THROUGH all time!
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.
I wish I had a time machine so I could go back and not watch this film.
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.
H. G. Wells deserved better than this. And so do you.
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…
I saw this on television and naturally thought it was a made-for-tv movie. Everything about the film's script, production quality, and especially Orlando Jone's AI character seemed to fit in well with that idea. But after my viewing, I found out it had a pretty significant budget, so my appreciation for it dropped considerably. But back when I thought it was a tv-movie, I found it so inspiring! I was literally watching in awe, because I didn't expect so much awesome imagery and interesting plot turns to come out of this story. It really did have a cool idea. I don't know how much of it H.G. Wells, the author of the book this film adapted, was responsible for, but I do know the only person I have to thank for the lead's incredibly divine good-looks is Guy Pearce.
This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.
Stars off good, turns bad fast.
Guy Pearce is convincing enough as an obsessed mourning cliche man but the rest of it feels like a hybrid between a normal sci-fi movie and a really shitty B-movie.
FROM MOVIE STUB COLLECTION
This was a pretty forgettable movie. All I remember is Guy Pierce as the lead and I remember him being okay. I literally don't remember anything about the plot and I can't tell you who else is in the film. Looking at the other reviews, I guess I'm not in the minority.
Reminds one that Cloud Atlas is the best recent version of The Time Machine. As a straight forward sci-fi without worrying about the novel, it's not too bad. The main burden is the backstory which introduces an unwelcome element of time paradox. The original Time Traveller went into the future simply because he found it more interesting than going into the past. Nevertheless, it deploys successfully the most optimistic ending of any version.
Hologram Orlando Jones as record keeper is excellent.
The film is visually attractive, but is ultimately an abomination of the greatness of the original/book/potential etc.
Mostly a bad remake. The ten minutes with Jeremy Irons is good though.
I'm pretty sure I'm developing an allergy against pointless films.
A messy movie with a terrible plot.
At the prodding of a work associate of mine who actually owns The Time Machine dvd, I watched this film. I was impressed with some aspects of it, except the inconceivability of the extreme future (800,000+) years.
