Everybody's a critic; This week - 'The Time Machine'
Why can't we change the past? This is the question Alexander Hartdegen (Guy Pearce) asks in this remake of the H.G. Wells novel.
When his fiancé is killed, Hartdegen creates a time machine to save her. When he finds out he can't change the past, he goes to the future to find out why.
This film was very entertaining. It was exciting at points and thought-provoking at others. The performances were very good as well. Pearce was good as Hartdegen, but the movie-stealing performance was from Orlando Jones. Jones gives his best performance to date as a holographic computer Hartdegen meets in the future.
My only problem with the movie is it never said why the time machine worked. I just wanted one line that said, "It works because of (fill in the blank)." This didn't happen, and I thought about it constantly when I shouldn't have.
