Just a kinetic illustration of the novel. But I am happy to settle for that. This faithful adaptation of the Wells is a film that will appeal to only a narrow audience.

I am as big a supporter of the little guy as possible, but these folks need to step back and learn how to tell a story.

If you're a fan of hilariously woeful filmmaking, you should immediately seek out a copy of this flick. A rental copy.

Audience Reviews for The War of the Worlds

Very true to the book but astonishingly badly made. This, to me, gives it zero value as a film - if I just want the story I'll read the book - and it's REALLY painful to watch.
