A gentleman of the late Victorian era would not have hair as long as shown in the film. See more »
A professor from Columbia University should not be corresponding with a crazy German book keeper.
He's a patent clerk, not a book keeper, and I think Mister Einstein needs all the support I can give him.

You have to stop and wonder how a film that was made 42 years before this one, based on the same book and with less dazzling special effects can be better than this one! The secrets of time travel will have been discovered, indulged in and rejected as boring before I see this spectacular disappointment and colossal waste of...time again. It's a listless, plodding, mumble of a film that gets so bogged down in special effects that it never comes close to capturing the adventurous spirit of the classic H.G. Wells story. The good news is that this journey might span 800,000 years, but it will only suck 90 minutes out of your life.
