Mini-Review - "Time After Time" (1979)
H.G. Wells (played by Malcolm McDowell) invents an actual time machine, then gets it stolen by Jack The Ripper (David Warner), and now Wells has to chase him down in present-day San Francisco. Oh, and the film is written and directed by Nicholas Meyer, the same man who gave us "Star Trek II: The Wrath Of Khan."
If that is not enough incentive to go out and watch this unbelievably crazy, wacky yet hilarious story of two famous historical figures time traveling, then I don't know what is. It is worth watching just to see Malcolm McDowell playing the author of "War Of The Worlds" and "The Time Machine," attempting to understand how cars work.
How can you go wrong with that?
Final Grade: B+
