2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By FrKurt Messick HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWER on Jan. 31 2006
Format: DVD
I must confess that I march to a different drummer when it comes to this film. I enjoyed it for the most part, and find it very clever in many aspects. The major drawback comes from the plot - it is far too simplistic for the elaborate care that went into both the visual aspect of the film as well as the nice touches at almost every turn.
The plot is rather simple - Alexander Hartdegen, a mechanical physics professor in turn-of-the-century New York (turn of the nineteenth-into-the-twentieth century, that is), has his head in his equations, apart from one thing, his love for Emma. When she is killed in a botched mugging (yes, New York at that time even had muggings in Central Park), Hartdegen drops everything to invent the time machine he'd theorised, in order to prevent Emma's death. He soon makes the discovery that it isn't possible to undo the past (at least not that aspect of the past), but becomes obsessed with finding the reason why. He speculates this is more likely to be answered in the future than in the past or present, and thus goes forward in time. He makes a few stops along the way before arriving at a far-distant future (nearly a million years in the future), in which the human race has evolved into two distinct species - one on the surface, and one below the earth.
So far, so good - departure from H.G. Wells' original classic (a great piece of literature) and from the earlier film, but not beyond the pale. The effects here are truly stunning in many respects - the time machine itself is a marvel (the DVD has a feature on the making of the machine), and the time transformation scenes are very inspiring, up to and including the zoom-away shot from the machine into the air all the way to the city on the moon. The Eloi city along the river is also a remarkable scene.

I absolutely loved this version of The Time Machine. The temporal paradox thrown into the tale makes the story all that much better and the special effects were beautifully done. The time machine itself is an amazing prop, mixed with the right special effects and it looks great. One of my favourite scenes was watching the moon break up. Everything about this version was well done. I watched a little of the old 60's version and what a difference.

If you're a fan of Time Travel movies you won't be disappointed with this. I loved the ending of the movie, very touching. This is one of those movies that doesn't collect dust, at least not in my home.

Well worth buying.

J'ai aimé ce film, je suis tombé dessus par hasard. Un ami l'avait louer et l'avait trouvé moyen. Il me l'a décrit et j'ai réalisé qu'il s'agissait d'un remake. Comme sa location n'était pas terminé je l'ai vu gratuitement. J'ai toujours aimé la version original de ce film. C'est un grand classique pour moi.
J'ai été ravit par la manière dont le réalisateur a modifié les choses juste assez pour que ce ne soit pas une copie. Le chercheur avait un but différent et réalise des principes non abordés dans la version originale. La scène ou la lune se brise, wow. Inquiètudes à la sauce du jour.
La seul chose que j'aime moins c'est la destruction des méchants. Un peu tiré par les cheveux, mais que veux-tu, on ne peut pas tout avoir.

Where is the blueray extended version ??? Let's do it..Such memorable special effects. Great shots in filming. Suberb acting for this classical Wells story.

The director could have stayed closer to the book (on which the movie was based). I read it and must say that the original sticks a lot more to the book, although some small changes had to be made (Weena and the rest of the Eloi are child-like people, while they were adults in the movie). But on the other hand, if he had stayed closer to the book, it would have been just a copy (new and improved) of the original movie. So I'd say the movie was LOOSELY based on the book (the idea, at least, if anything else...)

I was impressed with the special effects and the changes to the screenplay from the original movie. The original is a sci-fi classic and in my opinion so is this 2002 version. Thinking about fact that the main character, Alexander, could not change the past makes the story realistic and adds depth to the concept of a time travel movie. Although, he could change the future since he was from the past adds thought and value; plus makes the story quite interesting.
