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

During the first alien attack scene, we see a group of people on the street running to escape the vaporizing rays. The camera cuts away for a few seconds, then we return to that same (repeated) scene again, with the same group of people running from the rays. See more »

Quotes

Victoria: We have no fleet left, no army, no one way ship.
Gorman: That's right.

Absolutely awful!
30 March 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I felt like watching a 1969 Sci-fi movie through out the whole time... The computer generated portion of this movie is absurd and out-dated.

The actors and actress mostly seemed like they are unprofessionally trained especially their voice acting. It felt like they are trying to act like they are acting, which is the most disastrous phenomena you can have in a movie.

I couldn't stand finishing the movie after seeing the laboratory and the scientists that totally disgusted me with their fake acting. Compared with Independence Day, Matrix or any other Sci-Fi movies, this is the absolutely WORST! Do not waste your time and money on this!
