Did You Know?


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 »


Victoria: We have no fleet left, no army, no one way ship.
Gorman: That's right.
Victoria: [pause] Wanna get drunk?

One of the worst!
30 June 2008 | by sudic2See all my reviews

One of the worst, if not the worst movie, I have seen in my life! Ed Wood could not make anything this bad! His movies are at least a couple of levels above this piece of junk! I didn't think someone could make a movie this bad in the modern era.

Its an insult to the previous actors and writers of the other movie.

Mr. Wells would cry in his seat if he saw this crap.

Weak story line, amateurish graphics.

College and Highschool students make better movies for their midterm.

Please don't waste any money on this one cause they didn't.

TV shows like Doctor Who, Battlestar Gallatica, and Stargate are about 100 times more interesting, better made, and have better actors.

P.U. What a stinker!
