H.G. Wells and Jack the Ripper were both transported from 18 century London to 20th century San Francisco, with one trying to stop the other from committing gruesome crimes. So you get to see modern day Frisco throughout the film. I find at places the film is a tad slow. But overall it is a good spin on the time-travel theme. It was also done before the era of CGI, so the special effect was very limited.

Watched it a few weeks ago and forgot to comment. Anyway, a good movie to watch. Drama with a touch of romance and comedy. Well performed by all characters. For an entertaining watch, check it out.

Very well done "time-travel" movie. Engaging through and through.

'Time after Time' is a clever battle of wits between H.G Wells and Jack the Ripper, who has used Wells' time machine to escape to the future while eluding the London police in 1893. Wells pursues him feeling morally responsible for his escape and also to see the utopia that he imagines the future to be. It is ironical that while a serial killer finds himself completely at home in the modern era, a scholar and a gentleman is completely out of place in our 'utopia'. If you liked 'Back to the Future' you will like 'Time after Time'.

I think david warner is my favorite screen jack. unlike other films where the ripper is portrayed as a demented madman, in this film warner gives a droll, cynical and intelligent performance--and manages to steal every scene he's in. he works very well with malcolm mcdowell's understated h g wells.

Quite a decent little film. Accepting the premise that "The Time Machine" is real, everything is quite reasonable. There are a number of very cute touches in odd areas, such as the eyeglasses. The "fish-out-of-water comedy aspects are overplayed in some respects, but not too badly.

An excellent film. A little dated now, seeing as the early 1980's was a futuristic society to the experimenting Herbert Wells, but still very well done and gripping.
