The Time Machine Guy Pearce roams around in both space and time looking totally lost, as if he's bored by this acting assignment. And if not for the visual effects (which actually stick out and get in the way), viewers would be pretty bored, too. The story barely resembles the H.G. Wells novel, and lacks the humor that made the original film sparkle. In the end, when villainous Jeremy Irons says to Pearce, "Now you have your answer," one can't do anything more than scratch one's head. What exactly was the question? (ES) RATED: PG-13
