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.
