Based on the classic sci-fi novel by H.G. Wells, scientist and inventor, Alexander Hartdegen, is determined to prove that time travel is possible. His determination is turned to desperation by a personal tragedy that now drives him to want to change the past. Testing his theories with a time machine of his own invention, Hartdegen is hurtled 800,000 years into the future, where he discovers that mankind has divided into the hunter - and the hunted.

It is impossible for the moon to remain in scattered fragments after such a long time as 800,000 years. By that time, gravity would have caused the fragments to fall back together into one contiguous moon or to form a ring around the Earth. However, the later shot of the moon in the far-flung future shows that it is continuing to fracture, indicating that the detonation that cased it to fragment in the first place was much deeper than simply a few stray fragments, and the stretching between the two time periods shows that the pieces are becoming the aforementioned ring.

We all have our time machines, don't we. Those that take us back are memories... And those that carry us forward, are dreams.

We 4 hard critics actually liked this film! Great music, and more...
The four of us are in the 40 - 50 age range, and we are fairly tough what we like and do not like in films. It was Friday night and we wanted entertainment. We read the comments below - mostly, but not all negative - and decided to take a gamble. Arriving at the cinema, we were prepared for a bad movie but hoping for 'a good relaxing time'. Well, we *did* like this film! Not a top box office smash or even an 8 out of 10, but entertaining nevertheless. The MUSIC was superb. ACTING was fine. HISTORIC life portrayed in old Cambridge Massachusetts was realistic - even the snow and cold weather was real. The ROMANCE was acceptable. The STORY, while not closely following H G Well, was good enough. The SPECIAL EFFECTS were very good indeed. It is worth a gamble, to see this film. But go with a light heart and an acceptable frame of mind, and keep your expectations below that of a 10 out of 10 film.
