I think the Time Machine's biggest
mistake is there is too many long, overly boring scenes to fall
By the time the plot returns--who cares?
They changed the flavor of the original
in favor of a love story. They lost the adventure and mystery
of the 1960 version.
Let's blame it all on timing.
Half the fun is getting there.
Those of you looking for a modern remake
of the H.G. Wells novel will be disappointed, as this is a new
Time Machine, complete with up-to-date special effects,
brilliant art direction, and a brand-new script.
However, the movie does degenerate into
the typical man vs. monster genre, making for a strange but predictable
Not a great film, but well above average.
The Time Machine doesn't
seem to know where to go.
The two main time-travel sequences have
great special effects and are amazing to watch, but the emotional
buildup is wasted without a script to do them justice.
The film deviates from the H.G. Wells classic
novel, and (in my view) that's a mistake.
The conclusion is anticlimactic and not
satisfying. The movie makes no sense and falls apart in the end.
