I don't recall ever seeing this film. Huh. Don't know why I'd review it. I guess if I had, I might say that it was very bad. Jeremy Irons hams it up and Guy Pearce doesn't really... well, I don't know. Like I said before, I don't think I ever saw this movie. Have you?
information from IMDB that might be of interest to you. For example, it's said that Gore Verbinski (The Ring, Rango) came in to re-direct the film after H.G. Wells' great-grandson Simon Wells had trouble with "extreme exhaustion". Simon Wells then went on to make Mars Needs Moms, a movie I know I didn't see. Seriously this time. Working with computer actors is probably less exhausting, I guess. Also, Double Take's Orlando Jones is in this movie. Until 45 seconds ago I forgot that Double Take was a movie, let alone one I saw, enjoyed, and owned on DVD for a while. I guess I can thank The Time Machine for that.
Also, I kid you not: Jeremy Irons' character is identified as Über-Morlock. Yikes.
I can't recommend this movie because even if I did see it I honestly don't remember anything about it. That's probably because I didn't see it, but don't quote me on that. I see lots of things and forget about them.
Oh well, hopefully I can find something I watched last week. Maybe I'll try to remember Double Take. I honestly seem to remember liking it, but have scant memories of the film. I think there's a train.... wow, this is gonna be a rough stretch of Retro Reviews...
