Allan C (it) wrote: H.G. Wells, played wonderfully by Malcolm McDowell, uses his time machine to pursue Jack the Ripper, a wonderfully creepy David Warner, into modern day San Francisco. Written and directed by Nicholas Meyer, the fun set up offers lots of opportunities for funny fish-out-of-water comedy and for plenty of interesting verbal debates between Wells and the Ripper about whether this modern world is the idealized world Wells predicted for the future or if it's a twisted and demented world better suited to the homicidal likes of Jack the Ripper. But perhaps the most likable part of the film is the unexpected romance between Wells and the very modern and liberated bank teller, Mary Steenburgen. Steenburgen has always had a unique charm that I've always like and that she's still able to pull off nearly 40 years later on FOX's "Last Man on Earth." Steenburgen's charm is really something special in the film and I think it's my favorite of all her film roles. She alone makes this film worth watching. Also of note is the nicely old fashioned score by old Hollywood composter Mikls Rzsa in one of his final film compositions. The film also features Patti D'Arbanville, Shelley Hackj and Corey Feldman as "Boy at Museum."
