Spielberg's calculations turn out to be more prominent than any effects they could possibly produce, and the less pretentious 1953 version by producer George Pal emerges as more likable. Full Review

Rating: 2.5/4 -- Moves from one action set piece to another, seeing everything only through the eyes of its main characters, and in doing so avoids many sci-fi clichés. Full Review

Overall, the film is too lacking in feeling to provide a recognizably human experience.

Rating: B+ -- The story is affecting, the action scenes are thrilling, the issues are resonant. Full Review

Rating: 9/10 -- War of the Worlds is that most rare of screen adaptations - a film that is faithful to its origins and at the same time, its own separate creature. The first half is better than the second, but what a first half. Full Review

Product Description:

Definitely not to be confused with the Spielberg film of the same name and year, David Michael Latt's spirited low-budget adaptation of Wells's timeless novel--updated to modern times--is dark and entertaining, with game and engaging performances from stars C. Thomas Howell, Jake Busey, and Rhett Giles.
