In the movie The Time Machine, released in 2002, the old Morlock guy says, "I am the inescapable result of you."

Was he saying he was Dr. Alexander Hartdege? Or that he was a result of the evolution of humans after the moon event?

    I don't know if there's any way to answer this definitively, but I think he was using "you" to refer to the human race of Hartdegen's time, saying that the Morlocks were part of their inevitable future evolution. – Hypnosifl Jul 26 '16 at 4:40

He was talking about Evolution. As you may remember he is identifying with the silverfish in the lake being a product of adaption. Hence the Morlock is the inevitable conclusion of the evolution (should that be de-volution) of the human race. Of course what is not mentioned is that the Eloi are also a product of the same Evolution chain.
