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

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 »

Quotes

One of the worst movies ever...
6 April 2008 | by See all my reviews

Well I didn't like the first movie to this series but now they have outdone themselves in the worst possible way. A really stupid story, which I could still overlook, if there wasn't really really horrible bad acting!! I wont really comment on the computer effects, which were not good ones, because that shouldn't be what a movie is about anyway... The only thing that really bothered me is that especially in the flight scenes they showed the same sequence over and over and over and over again? Do they think i am stupid and my attention span is less than 45 seconds? This movie can only be regarded as a very bad joke gone really wrong...
