    Witty and Lovely Time Traveling Film

    Time After Time is one of the great, underrated films of the 1970s. The plot sounds ridiculous-H.G. Wells builds a time machine that is stolen by Jack the Ripper, and Wells must pursue him to 1970s San Francisco-but if you look more closely at the film, one can see the cleverness and creativity involved in its creation. Malcolm McDowell is excellent as H.G. Wells, and those who only know him as Caligula and Alex would be well served by checking out the gentle, elegant way in which he plays the character. David Warner brings an appropriate sense of menace to his portrayal of Jack the Ripper, and Mary Steenburgen is lovely and quirky as McDowell's love interest. The film reminds one of an old hollywood classic, with its sense of wonder at the idea of time travel intact. In short, I would reccomend this film to anyone who was looking for a lovely, witty, suspense film.

    A Pure Delight!

    Except for a bit of choppy editing at the climax, the is a perfectly wonderful movie. Sci-fi, romance, comedy, pathos. This film has it all. This was also the first time I'd seen Mary Steenburgen and instantly fell in love. (She did a second time travel a few years later in 'Back to the Future III') She and Malcom make a cute couple and Warner is believable as The Ripper. Of course it's ridiculous, but suspend belief and enjoy!

    Who's the Kook?

    I've never heard of Hal Erikson or the All Movie Guide, but to describe Steenburgen's character in Time After Time as ''kooky'' is to describe DeNiro's character in Taxi Driver as ''lovable''. Ignore all reviews bar this one and just get the movie.

    very enjoyable romantic/drama/sci-fi

    One of my all time favorite time travel movies. Funny, romantic, and yet still very exciting. H.G. Wells vs. Jack the Ripper? One of the few movies that McDowell plays a likeable character. He's usually reduced to a comic foe, but in this movie, he plays a charming romantic/heroic lead. You won't find alot of special effect/car chases, but for an older movie, it does the job quite well.

    Fun, Interesting and Sweet

    I agree -- I've never heard of this ''official'' reviewer and he doesn't have a clue. Rather than being disappointed, Jack the Ripper is DELIGHTED that Utopia has not come to pass -- there is a great confrontation between him and Wells where he describes 20th century society as ''catching up to me''. It is a wonderful movie -- McDowell, Warner and Steenburgen are all great in their roles and you will stand up and cheer at the end -- it even explains why the West End murders stopped so suddenly. A definite movie to buy and watch again and again.
