A.O. Scott
The New York Times
This uninviting and pallid version, starring Guy Pearce, is intent on grinding all the sharp edges off the original story, in effect making the movie childproof, so no one can get hurt touching it. Full Review
David Edelstein
The film has no spirit of inquiry -- no spirit at all, really. Full Review
Desson Thomson
Washington Post
Amazingly stilted before accelerating into its exciting finish. Full Review
James Berardinelli
The Time Machine is stupid -- too stupid for the impressive special effects or the competently directed action sequences to wash away the bitter taste. Full Review
Jay Carr
Boston Globe
The best thing about the new film of H.G. Wells's The Time Machine is the machine. Full Review
