Academy Awards 1960 - Best Special Effects
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
Rating: 4/5 -- Still the best.
Rating: 7/10 -- The effects work throughout the film is truly special (the film won an especially well-earned Oscar for them). Full Review
Antagony & Ecstasy
Rating: B -- A colorful special effects film. Full Review
Ozus' World Movie Reviews
Pal's movie is a brightly colored sweetmeat with all the indicting political ideology of a buttered scone. Full Review

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.
