The year's Oscar winner for special effects, this MACHINE is at least 802,701 miles ahead of 2002's Guy Pearce remake.

The quaint time machine and Oscar-winning special effects hold one's interest initially, but the overall effect is one of glossy emptiness. Full Review

His new opus is a disappointment by comparison, with ingenious trick photography but an awfully silly story... Full Review

Product Description:

Setting the temporal starting point of the classic H.G. Wells novel in the year 1960 (rather than 1900), this engrossing adaptation follows the Time Traveler as he passes through World Wars I, II, and III and finally stops in the year 802,701. There he finds an apathetic, placid people called the Eloi and falls in love with one of their number, the beauteous blonde Weena. To his horror, however, he learns that the Eloi's apathy is generated by a maniacal, cannibalistic underworld--and that the only way to help them is to incite a revolution. George Pal's version of THE TIME MACHINE is an exciting and faithful cinematic production of H.G. Wells's 1895 classic. Academy Awards: Best Special Effects.
