This is indeed a bug that came with 8.2.1. Seems someone did not test the code they have committed.
I have overwritten concrete/attributes/date_time.php by in the application folder and replaced line 2 with:
$form = Core::make('helper/form');

But even with that fix it will trow another error if what you type is not according the format of the date time field. For example, if you put in "January 1st" it will trow an error. End users do not understand this.
Call to a member function setTimezone() on boolean
\attributes\date_time\controller.php 205

I guess no one bothered to fill out a form and while using "Text Input Field" option on the Date/Time attribute. Because I'm pretty sure the developer who has written the code would have noticed this otherwise.
When you fix it could you also please fix the indentation on concrete/attributes/date_time/form.php.
