Trivia

The sounds coming from Alex's hand-held video game are from the classic arcade game "Defender," in which the player fights aliens attempting to kidnap humans, which mirrors the basic plot of "War of the Worlds." See more »

Goofs

Gorman and Victoria show George Herbert a 3 legged "Squid" walker with a brain controller from the first invasion. However walkers from the first invasion had 6 legs and aliens controlled them manually. See more »

Quotes

Disgraceful to the "War of the Worlds" name
2 June 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Oh goodness, why do people make this crap?! Are these filmmakers literally trying to kill us by demolishing our brain cells? First of all, I'm not going take long on reviewing a film that's not worth it, so let's make this quick and start off by calling out the bad stuff. (Which is basically everything about the film.)

  • The acting was horrendous. The worst you could possibly get.




  • The special effects were complete trash. Everything that had to deal


with any special effects whatsoever was horrible.

  • The walkers were also disappointing, and they weren't cool or edgy at


all, nor were they new or awesome in anyway possible.

  • The constant, unnecessary, background music got on my last nerve. It


didn't go two seconds without playing some sort of irritating, repetitive music!

  • The twist at the end was incredibly stupid and predictable.




There was nothing good about this film, except for the fact that it made me breathe relief when the end credits showed, because the agony of watching this movie was finally over.

If you're a big fan of the story, I beg of you to not to watch this film, or even consider watching it. If you don't, you will be doing yourself a tremendous deed.
