The word "remake" is taken to a whole new level as everything from Back to the Future to Planet of the Apes and Waterworld is reflected in this illogical adaptation of H.G. Wells' classic sci-fi novel. Guy Pearce plays a love struck 19th-century absent-minded science professor out to avenge the wrongful death of his fiancée, but instead saves a canyon colony 800,000 years into the future from murderous sand monsters that are controlled by an albino version of the sychlos from Battlefield Earth. Elements such as a holographic compendium of all human knowledge and futuristic New Yorkers skilled in bamboo-scaffold construction are included in a meek attempt to explain the many incoherencies. However, it all just boils down to the fact that writer-director Simon Wells has developed no work of his own here, but rather a twisted mish-mash of everyone else's work before him.
