A good movie based on H.G. Wells' classic novel.

A loud annoying movie with poor directing and plot holes galore...

The Time Machine is harmless, if ineffectual fun.

This remake of the 1960 sci-fi feature (based on Wells famous novel) fails to take advantage of the new technology to make the tale more effective.

If I had a time machine that could take me back only four hours, I'd take my nine dollars, find the original movie at a video store, and spend the rest on an In N'Out Burger.

...The computer-generated wizardry is certainly present and accounted for, even if the opportunity for social commentary or literary integrity has been left largely untapped.

Entertaining, but missing a suitable point.

While this remake of the H.G. Wells' classic novel and 1960 film is indeed a stunning achievement in special effects, his great- grandson and director Simon Wells really needs to go back a year and get the sadly lacking script rewritten.

I found myself glancing at my timepiece about every ten minutes of the interminable 96-minute running time of this latest tragic remake of a classic genre picture.

Modern take on H.G. Wells's sci-fi classic has great special effects but isn't especially affecting.

If H.G. Wells had a time machine and could take a look at his kin's reworked version, what would he say? 'It looks good, Sonny, but you missed the point.'

This is a film to look at, not to feel --or care much-- about. It comes down to little more than another s/f flic.

This film is more interested in the flash and dazzle that emits from imaging computers than the ideas that inspired the story in the first place.

A few pieces of the film buzz and whir; very little of it actually clicks. The thing just never gets off the ground.

A catatonic B-schlock-Indiana Jones-video game (trust me, the result is less interesting than it sounds).

After 30 minutes you'll pray for your own Time Machine so you go back to 5 minutes before you decided to see this movie.

I love the opening scenes of a wintry New York City in 1899. Cinematic poetry showcases the city's old-world charm before machines change nearly everything.

One of those staggeringly well-produced, joylessly extravagant pictures that keep whooshing you from one visual marvel to the next, hastily, emptily.
