“Things to Come is based on what is possibly, in our opinion, the worst scenario that has ever been written. It is so bad that it seems to be beyond discussion, and we are quite unable to understand how it got into production.”
"Intolerably prosy and grotesquely unconvincing. I was confirmed in a former suspicion, namely, that the fituture is the dullest subject on earth... The actors seemed to know this better than Mr Wells or Mr Korda, for thwey were unable to say their lines as if they meant them; they stared into the abominable blankness around them and said their pieces like children on parents' day."
(Mark van Doren, Nation)
