It's not often you find a well-done romance featuring Jack the Ripper. A young Herbert George Wells in 1893 London invites a few close friends to his home for a meal and a look at his latest invention. It's a time machine, and he intends to use to it visit the future, which because of science and man's intelligence he is sure will be a utopia. The police interrupt his evening gathering because Jack the Ripper has struck again and they know he is in the neighborhood. But when his guests leave, one is unaccounted for, and the time machine is missing. It returns empty, having gone to November 5, 1979, where Herbert's friend, Dr. John Leslie Stevenson now known to be Jack, got off. Herbert gathers what money he has, packs a travellling bag, and sets off in pursuit. He cannot let the madman who was his friend infect utopia.

Wells winds up in San Francisco. He meets Amy Robbins (Mary Steenburgen), a bank teller who helps him with some of his strange money, rather likes his curiously old-fashioned suit, and then helps him just get around. The future turns out to be a difficult and confusing place. He and Mary develop feelings for each other and he tracks down Jack, who is in his element. As Jack tells him, "Ninety years ago I was a freak. Now I'm an amateur." The resolution of the plot is final for Jack, but is just a beginning for Herbert and Mary. But Wells is determined to return to his time, just as Mary is reluctant to leave her time. His disallusionment with the future is understandable. In a museum he finds an exhibit about himself with copies of his books he hasn't written yet. "I have to go back," he tells Mary. "I have to destroy this machine. I have all those books to write, whatever they are. Fiction, I hope."

This is a charming movie which is hard to catagorize.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Ripping Yarn 7 Oct 2010
When H.G Wells(Malcolm Mcdowell) is showing his amazing new invention to his closest friends, little does he know that one of his companions, physician John Leslie Stevenson(David Warner), is in fact notorious serial killer Jack The Ripper. Wells inadvertently gives Stevenson access to time travel, and when the police come round in pursuit of The Ripper, he has travelled forward in time, using Well's time machine. Wells sets off in pursuit, and finds himself in 1970's San Fransisco. What he finds there shatters his dreams of a Utopian future, but on the other hand Jack The Ripper finds the modern world very much to his liking, moving around unnoticed like a venomous Chameleon. Wells is going to have to use all his ingenuity to stop the monster he has unleashed in the 20th century.
This is a marvellous film. Director Nicholas Meyer pitches the tone perfectly, as it merges fantasy and reality seamlessly. It also is a genre busting film, being a romantic comedy, a fantasy and science fiction all in one. The three central performances are beyond criticism, Mcdowell terrific as the Victorian gentleman who is both awed and frightened as to what the world has become, Warner is perfect as The Ripper, a mixture of mannered threats and sly cunning. Last but not least, Mary Steenburgen is terrific as Wells' feisty love interest Amy Robbins.
Despite the gruesome theme running through the film, there is a great sense of humour running through the film, with Wells struggling to come to terms with Twentieth century America. There's a great joke involving Mcdonalds, and there's a very funny scene where Wells' who thinks he's quite the ladies man, suddenly becomes rather shy when Amy comes onto him.
Nice extras on the disc too, including a commentary by director Meyer and Mcdowell.

5.0 out of 5 stars Quite a gem 15 Jun 2008
By simonpeggfan VINE VOICE
My interest was sparked by McDowell rating this highly in the Guardian - in part doubtless influenced by him meeting his future wife on the movie.

He's right to be proud of it - an excellent film, a great cast, great looking design, a fine score, excellent direction, a witty sense of humour and with a warm embracing of the 1960 Time Machine and Jack the Ripper mythology. I always find Mcdowell to be excellent, be it in a Lindsay Anderson film or an episode of Monk and he doesn't disappoint here. With David warner as the other lead it's a fantastic cast.

Highly recommended, my only disappointment was not watching it on a cinema screen where the time travel sequence must have looked magnificent.

By Spike Owen TOP 500 REVIEWER
Time After Time is directed by Nicholas Meyer who also adapts the screenplay from a story written by Karl Alexander and Steve Hayes. It stars Malcolm McDowell, David Warner and Mary Steenburgen. Music is by Miklos Rozsa and cinematography is by Paul Lohmann.

How delightful, a wonderful idea is given an equally wonderful presentation. The makers have come up with the idea of pitching Jack the Ripper against H.G. Wells, in the present day of 1979. This after the Ripper (Warner) used Wells’ (McDowell) time machine to escape the Whitechapel police back in 1891, thus forcing Wells to track the infamous killer to San Francisco in the future.

There have been so many fish-out-of-water based movies over the years, it’s so refreshing to find one that has a genuinely original premise to work from. In the Ripper’s case he sees all the violence around the streets of San Fran and believes it’s his calling to be in this company. On the flip-side, Wells is perturbed to find that this is not the Utopia he had envisaged, but yet the science lover in him is fascinated by what he finds. Helps, too, that he has caught the attention of a very horny Amy Robbins (Steenburgen), who is equally fascinated by his genteel mannerisms.

Naturally the fun has to stop at some point to let the suspense and darker aspects of the story come to the surface. Meyer gets the blend right, dropping in little snippets of evil as Jolly Jack, resplendent with waistcoat and money belt, goes about his bloody business, and then switching to the Wells/Amy axis as they try to build a relationship whilst trying to convince the authorities that a nutter is very much in their midst.
