A good film to pass the time.,
This review is from: The Time Machine [DVD]  (DVD)
This is a most enjoyable remake of H G Wells classic story. His great-grandson has done his story justice in this in this well acted, well filmed story.
The action bowls merrily along and Guy Pearce makes a good job of portraying the hero Alexander and an intelligent script, explaining the reason why he wished to travel in time, enhances the story. It would have been easy to make this film a load of hokum but that trap has been neatly avoided.
Jeremy Irons role as the Uber Morlock whilst not being that big is excellently played, he portrays intelligent menace with great elan and is totally convincing. Where the film falls down slightly is in not explaining enough about why the Morlocks live as they do. They are shown carrying out various tasks in their underground home but we never find out what these all mean, the most passing of references would have done this and filled out their place in the storyline.
That small quibble apart this is a film well worth seeing and I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
