The Time Machine


A remake of H.G. Wells' classic novel, this version kicks off about 100 years ago in New York. Our hero is an inventor, engaged to be married. Then his lady is killed, and he decides to build a time machine to go back into the past and change things. Unfortunately he eventually ends up 800 000 years into the future, when life on earth has evolved into two species: gentle people living above the earth, and vicious monsters below the earth. After a cute young woman helps him, he decides to help them deal with the monsters underground. Critics have slated the script and acting while praising the special effects.
