During Prof. Hartdegen's first talk with the VOX unit in the city, he clearly asks the unit for more info on temporal causality and temporal paradox. Both these phenomena are what the uber' Morlock explains to him towards the end of the film when he tells the professor that he cannot save Emma because it would create a temporal paradox. So, if the professor even had a passing knowledge of what those terms meant, he would already know why he cannot change the past and would have never required to go anywhere. See more »
I enjoyed The Time Machine and its focus on simplicity and special effect instead of heavy time travel contradictions and fancy plots. This movie was straight backwards and forwards dealing with materialism and love - straight and simple. This was a feel good movie in a time (our time) of confusion, fear, and war. Too many critics looked for something really deep, tried to tear it apart because of its apparent lack of scientific continuity. But really the essence of this movie was human relationships and I thought the movie it made its point even though it took 800,000 years to do it. I felt with the characters. The only real problem I had was how a language could be kept so pure after so many years - of course they may have had help from a local library.
