JEEZES! SOUNDS LIKE COMPLETE GARBAGE - LIKE RICHARD DONNER OF THE SUPERMAN SERIES GOT INTO IT! I ABSOLUTELY WOULDN'T PAY A DIME TO SEE THIS VERSION! OUTSIDE OF THE EFFECTS, WHICH I'M SURE WOULD BE MIND-BLOWING, THE NEW STORY & SECONDARY CHARACTERS RING 100% FALSE & REEK OF CLICHE. OVER-ALL, IT'S HACK-WORK. BUT REALLY DREADFUL HACKWORK OF A CLASSIC.

Lawrence,
Couldn't agree more! Going by the review, it sounds like Logan has opted to aim his film squarely at the Playstation generation, to whom the idea of being all alone in a bizzare environment, with only a bunch of inarticulate "children" to show you around while cannibals lurk in the darkness, is not a dangerous situation! They need exploding X-men and Super-powered Droid men to titillate their danger reflexes, otherwise they get bored! I just hope someone steps in and puts a stop to this project before it gets going. If anyone is going to remake The Time Machine, surely it should be George Lucas. THAT would be a film!!!

After reading many articles of time travel and a few books on 4th dimensional geometry I now realize that travel into the 4th dimension is entirely feasible!..and you don't have to accelerate at the speed of light to do it, has alot to do with dimensional geometry and math, probably will construct a prototype in a month or so.
I would say the machine would be about the size of a volkswagen beetle or something.
Of course it looks and behaves nothing like any time machine I've seen in any movie.

I personally feel that the Time Machine... remake will be a big success for those who have never taken the time to see Pal's Classic... I am upset about it... but I know that Pal's and Well's orginal vision should always be the norm... Not what has happened with this new approach.. of Morlocks that can see in light... That in itself contradicts everything old H.G. Wells, himself wrote.

Shame on Simon Wells... For doing this.
