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.Written by
When Hartdegen starts to travel to the future, he watches three mannequins in a shop window and as their clothes change across the time. In The Time Machine (1960), George watches the change of clothes of a mannequin during his time travel. See more »
Actress Myndy Crist, who is the friendly New Yorker who thinks Alexander Hartdegen's Time Machine is a Cappuccino maker, is listed in the movie credits as "Jogger", but in the entire scene she is unlocking her bicycle from a bike rack, thus her credit should be "Bicyclist", since she isn't jogging anywhere in the film.

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.
