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 »
When Dr. Herbert runs out of fuel, he locates a "gas" station and uses his food coupons for by 3 gallons of gas. The Dodge pick up he is driving is a diesel (as can be seen obviously in a later scene, right after his son is taken). Gas wouldn't do him much good. See more »
When I first saw this, I couldn't believe it! War of the Worlds, from the book, the radio drama and the original '53 movie is classic, in every respect of the word. I'm not a huge fan of the Spielberg remake, to be honest, it would have been so much better setting it in the 'Victorian' era, but I digress.
WOTW 2 is terrible, I mean, truly awful. The acting is some of the worst I have seen. The directing isn't that bad, but it's nothing special. The SFX are terrible...I've see TV adverts with better effects! The story seemed to be from a junior school competition.
This really is an insult to H G Wells...he would be rolling in his grave over this. Avoid it at all costs.
