War of the Worlds Movie Review

War of the Worlds is a classic sci-fi story by H.G. Wells that's all about martians invading and wiping out the whole planet. This new War of the Worlds movie is bringing the alien invasion to a theater near you with Tom Cruise, Dakota Fanning and tons of eye candy. Is the invasion from Mars awesome, awful or just plain weird? Get the 411 from our movie review!

War of the Worlds - Alien Invaders and Special Effects

Brace yourself for an eye and ear invasion! The thundering booms of the alien war machines and incredible explosions and special effects in the War of the Worlds are gonna knock your socks off and nail 'em to the wall. On top of the alien invaders, there's also a solid family story going on with Roy (Tom Cruise), Rachel (Dakota Fanning) and Robbie who have to run from the aliens and deal with the whole world getting blown up at the same time. Dakota Fanning is especially awesome, even though she spends most of the time screaming in fear - but wouldn't you too?

War of the Worlds - Saving the World?

A word of warning - this movie can really freak out younger brothers and sisters. It's PG-13 for a gruesome spot or two, plus some totally nerve-wracking stuff and a constant barrage of special effects and alien monsters. Other than that, the biggest bummer is how sudden the ending is. It ends the same way as the original War of the Worlds, but this movie is different and the ending doesn't work as well.

War of the Worlds - DVD Features

The basic War of the Worlds DVD doesn't include too many extras, so if you're looking for a lot of behind-the-scenes secrets you'll want to pick up a copy of the 2-Disc Limited Edition DVD. It's a little bit more expensive, but it's jam-packed with commentary from Spielberg himself, featurettes about how to create alien life forms and much more!

War of the Worlds - Bottom Line

If you're looking for a popcorn-fest of a sci-fi movie, then War of the Worlds is a home run hit. It has freaky aliens, awesome effects, good acting and a whole lot of destruction. The ending is weak, but it's worth checking this movie out even if it's just to chill and watch the aliens stomp around.

    I think this is great because its being more realistic. Times have changed and it's time to accept changes.
