War of the Worlds – Review

Written By: Gary on July 2, 2005 2 Comments

WaroftheworldsaniWow!!! I was highly entertained. I did walk in with low expectations but still it was non-stop action and the effects were incredible!!! The plot was a little a lot thin: bad weekend Dad trying to outrun the destruction to save and bond with his kids at the same time. You can see the trailers at the Quicktime site. There’s an official web site but it’s way too busy (slow) with flash animations to be of any use.

As I said the effects were incredible. I can’t think of one complaint about them. Mostly non-stop action. And the aliens were very bad aliens (scary/gory for kids, IMHO). I got really confused with Tom’s character I wasn’t sure if he was supposed to be not so smart, street smart or secretly smart; it wasn’t very consistent at all. I love Dakota Fanning but she didn’t have many lines (past the first 10 minutes, no one had many lines). We sat really close too so it was right there in the action.

Please note: I said it was great entertainment, had great special effects, lots of action and a weak plot. You decide if this makes it a great movie or not…
