John L : This movie is pretty underrated. Not saying it's the best movies ever, but 5.9 on IMDB and 29% on RT? Come on...

Striker Rokkuhato : When I was younger and first saw this scene, I was really terrified.

Aengus Fallon : August 26, 2037 is the day that the Moon breaks up, folks. Might want to mark it in our diaries.

Nightweaver20xx : That time lapse sequence is still one of the most amazing, breath taking and beautiful scenes ever. It doesn't make much geologic sense (water carving out a canyon would take millions of years), but it's a nice way to show just how far he's gone.

dawsonoo7 : good thing that time machine never runs out of juice... must be using DURACEL batteries

frisianmouve : You would need a whole lot more than the world's current nuclear stockpile to do that to the moon. Maybe this world has Piccolo in it?

Ruluaman : 2037 is gona be a wild year

Isaiaz Martin : I had a dream about the moon breaking apart. Which is what brought me here to re watch this scene after 10yrs from seeing this movie. My dream was a little different. A astroid was headed to Earth but missed us and crashed against the moon causing it to shatter in 4 large pieces. Ah was some scary stuff.

Clad Lexia : he picked the most comfortable position to faint.

Bzhang Bezhang : Police brutality in the future XD

Joseph Rotello : This was or is one of the best versions of the timeless H.G. Wells classic. Guess who produced or directed (not sure) the movie itself ?   A relative of H.G. Wells.

Ben Baxter : as usual humans have to ruin everything .


Mixey : Loved this movie De-evolution a theory that might actually happen.

Esperanza Tamayo : In this version, he stops on 16 July 802701. In the 1960 version, it's 12 October. Just a useless fact for everyone :)

Saint Babylon : So before this guy invented his persona as the Mandarin he was time travelling? Very impressive. I'm sure Tony Stark would have appriciated this invention a lot more than turning people into walking lava lamps melting shit. hehe

Moist Gnome : The moon gets destroyed? Thanks Obama!

VultureClone : I love this movie and I don't understand the hate for it to be  honest.

03bgood : If we don't change our ways, this could happen!

RandomVideoCircus : GREAT SCOTT!!

Intellectual property Inc : Just go back to a time before white people started coming out of Europe. Perfect!!!

Marryo Bakotin : So epic scene!

b3to91frca : August 20, 2037? That's only 22 years from now

『ᗰ』 : Wait, I thought the moon was just an egg..with a giant alien dragon inside!

kungfuman82 : One of my favorite scenes in the film. I can just imagine the "oh shit" moment the crew on the moon experienced when they realized they destroyed the moon.

davidpar2 : Not as good as the original, but still a very enjoyable movie

CosmicX1 : Now THAT'S a super moon!

damian lyman : I always knew man would be the one to destroy earth.

Eric Terry : This is what happens when you do too many experiments at CERN.

GameDjeenie : This movie is not on Itunes... it pisses me off. I only have it on VHS and I don't have a VCR anymore lol

ALEX : Woow Mr weyland

Greg Schroll : This definitely looks like America under Hillary. The moon breaking up and the world going to hell.

Jonathan Teodoro : Who's watching from 2019 anyone????? im from 2022.

valar : Sheldon in The Big Bang Theory had the dream where he travelled to 802,701 and was attacked by Morlocks. XD

Joel S : The irony is that they had it all. They were finally making their real first progress on the dream of everyday space travel, colonizing the solar system, and were probably not too far from inventing the first FTL drive, and colonizing outer space. But some idiot decided to use the cheapest, fastest method to make the Lunar dream a reality, and thought it would be a good idea to use a nuke to create subterranean caverns! What could possibly go wrong? How about the destruction of civilization as we know, a mass extinction, a permanent split in humanity, and cutting off what was left from the stars, dooming our species to eventually die out when our sun expands into a red giant? Quoting one of the best lines in science fiction cinema history: "YOU MANIACS! YOU BLEW IT UP! GOD DAMN YOU! GOD DAMN YOU ALL TO HELL!!!" I hope that the moron who authorized the detonation of that 20 megaton nuke wasn't allowed in what few shelters were built, so he or she could reap what he or she sowed.

Cecilia Martinez : Everyone here complaining the film doesn't follow "real science". It's almost like this film fiction...I just wish they would have stuck a bit more with the way the Eloi were portrayed in the novel. The idea of human being reduced to cattle is frightening.

Ä. R S. : Talk about Rip van Winkle.

MrAlexOrex : So, in 2037 humanity blew up the Moon trying to construct a moon city, and the civilisation ended. But they have send some heroes to the past to prevent this disaster. These brave people were named "flat earthers" and "moon hoaxers". 19 years left, Moon still gets safer :)

Frdkrgr1771 : That's dumb screw explosions on the moon that's a risky chance

bjorn joseph : Never understood why he stayed. Why not go back and warn them

Fantomas : I once had a nightmare about the moon hitting the earth. You wouldn't believe how real it felt. I specifically remember being in a spherical shaped hotel while waiting for the impact. And when it hit, that falling feeling you get in dreams hit me. The hotel I was in eventually rolled into Lake Michigan and we were submerged underwater. Quite possibly the most frigtneing nightmare I've ever had. It's one of the few I can distinctly remember in detail.

BrianS317 : Too bad he didn't stop in 1970 and picked up a seatbelt

Miangel02 : How much time did it took the Earth to recover from the Lunar catastrophe?

Ellie Barnfield : Love this film. 

Raymour Morales : Crazy, I wonder how Buffalo, Ny turned from a Continental climate to desert, then grassland, then, artic, then finally tropical?!

bookworm : Jeremy irons character says colonies so does that mean there are more morlocs,so it has'nt really ended,so not such a happy ending,and why were all the eloi dark skinned did'nt any other races survive,no genetic variations,must be a very limited breeding choice for future generations.

Pokemon Champion Cynthia : ''Origin: Spirit of the Past'' Similar situation, only moon was devastated by dragon plants that bombarded the Earth. 

IamKingOfHearts : Why couldn't he just tell one of the officers about his time machine, take him back in time, and warn everyone about the moon breaking?

Whatnoticus : I have nbever seen this movie but I had a dream of the moon doing this a year before my partents got divorced in 2006, this is freaky as hell. (granted I always have a dream that something horrible happened to the moon right before bad stuff happens)

Jānis Ležņins : Film is a medium, but there are some very good scenes, this is one of them
