Critic Reviews for The Man Who Could Work Miracles
He gets all the rulers of the world together and tells them to fix things up, and then H. G. Wells interferes. Nice performance by Roland Young.
One of the most effective and scandalously entertaining proposals when it comes to making the public think. Pure Wells. [Full Review in Spanish]
It's an exceptionally interesting screen experiment, and one that young and old will find equally entertaining.
The acting is competent but the casting imperfect, and the dialogue too often stilted and given to harangues.
Audience Reviews for The Man Who Could Work Miracles
Nice adaptation of H.G. Wells story about one of the ultimate dreams, as the recent spate of superhero epics underline: what if a soul had more, extra power than everyone else? Well, as Stan Lee has opined in SpiderMan, "with great power comes great responsibility" and so our comic everyman finds out here in this 1930's English production.
This H. G. Welles story is probably my favourite fantasy movie of the thirties. Young gives a good performance as a man who gets the power to perform miracles. The plot may seem familiar to us now, but this movie is still worth seeing, the ending is pretty cool, and the movie has a lot of humorous scenes, both intentional and unintentional humor. I enjoyed this movie, it makes me wonder what I would do with the power to work miracles. What would you do?
