* CrowningMusicofAwesome: "Eloi," "Stone Language," and "Godspeed" apply to this.
* HypeBacklash: Marketing for the film constantly remind us that Simon Wells is HG's great grandson. While Simon has proven himself to be a talented director, his work may be better suited to making [[WesternAnimation/ThePrinceOfEgypt Animated Feature Films]].
* MisaimedFandom: Of ''course'' the Morlocks are {{Magnificent Bastard}}s and the Eloi are {{Idiot Hero}}es!
* {{Narm}}: "The Uber-Morlock"? ''Really?''
** It could have been worse. They could have called him "Peak Morlock."
* OneSceneWonder: As with the Borg in ''Film/StarTrekFirstContact'', the Morlocks were given a leader that had not existed previously, in order to explain what was going on those unfamiliar with the source material. Played [[HamAndCheese with a side of cheese]] by Creator/JeremyIrons.
* TookTheBadFilmSeriously: The TropeNamer, specifically Guy Pearce, at least according to Creator/RogerEbert.
