Everything about this film feels borrowed and recycled.
| Original Score: C
This new movie is an eye-candy spectacular but it's seriously lacking in the meaning department.
| Original Score: 4/10
A so-so film version of the great book that looks good, but just isn't very satisfying.
With one barnyard sound effect Orlando Jones sums up the whole Eloi/Morlock issue & was the most memorable moment in the film.
| Original Score: 3.5/5
The secrets of time travel will have been discovered, indulged in and rejected as boring before I see this piece of crap again.
| Original Score: 0.5/4
In the year 802,701, mankind has split into two races, animal life is nowhere to be found, the Earth has been pulverized by the accidental destruction of the moon and Cher is still undoubtedly enjoying a successful recording career.
Apesar de seus graves problemas, o filme consegue entreter.
| Original Score: 3/5
Wells' movie is more content to rip off Tomb Raider than remain faithful to his great-grandfather's book.
| Original Score: 2/5
"The Time Machine" is a movie that has no interest in itself. It doesn't believe in itself, it has no sense of humor...it's just plain bored.
| Original Score: 1.5/4
. It's a brilliant revision of the book and it offers a motivation for the invention that's lacking in the first film version.
| Original Score: 3.5/4
Pitiful entertainment, succeeding neither as spectacle, as action-adventure, or as love story.
| Original Score: D
The movie simply meanders along, making things up as it goes, and it shows.
This is a movie both efficient and vast, both ambitious and conventional, both funny and believable.
| Original Score: B+
While comparisons are inevitable, if you go into the 2002 film willing to look at it on its own merits, you will be rewarded.
| Original Score: B
All dressed up as some sort of popcorn blockbuster, but it has no idea how to go about getting its job done.
| Original Score: 2/4
Neglects the author's fundamental vision.
| Original Score: 6/10
It's passable big-budget trash, with a few diverting moments and a refreshing clarity in the design of the sets and special effects.
full of wondrous images and nothing coherent to say about them
The filmmakers needed more emphasis on the storytelling and less on the glamorous machine that thrusts the audience into a future they won't much care about.
I think The Time Machine will hold your interest. But I had the sense they were just whetting my appetite here-that the film could have been significantly more than it was.
| Original Score: B-
