Let me see if I got this straight: You want me to travel through a rip in time, find and repair a device that you lost and broke, all the while trying to avoid rampaging creatures from the future. That about sum it up?

A potentially good idea, as badly executed as possible
"Morlocks" are a race from H. G. Wells' "The Time Machine". When I see this in the TV listings, I'm thinking SyFy has come up with a fun new spin on the story. But other than the fact that time travel figures in to the story peripherally, there's no similarity at all. Even for SyFy, known for its dreadful production values, this is an all-time worst.
The CGI is so bad it would have been embarrassing in the 90s. Today, it's unforgivable. The director (if they actually had one) gave up even having the actors pretend to fire their guns and just animated muzzle flashes on them--even on the guns that weren't aimed at the enemy.
Things like breaking glass and tanks busting through walls look like they were animated by first-week film school students who just started learning CGI.
David Hewlett shows that he is perfectly capable of playing the exact same character in everything he does, as does Robert Picardo.
I have no idea how I managed to watch the whole thing. But at no point did I consider my time well spent.
