Product Description

Product Description

An earth-shattering adventure that both "rivets and amazes" (Michael Wilmington, Chicago Tribune), War of the Worlds reunites superstar Tom Cruise and Academy Award winning director Steven Spielberg for one of the most awe-inspiring cinematic experiences of all time! Direction: Steven Spielberg Actors: Dakota Fanning, Justin Chatwin, Lenny Venito, Lisa Ann Walter, Rick Gonzalez, Special Features: 1.85:1, Anamorphic 16x9, Widescreen format. Language: English / Add. French / Sub. English, French Year: 2005 Runtime: 116 minutes.

Amazon.com

Despite super effects, a huge budget, and the cinematic pedigree of alien-happy Steven Spielberg, this take on H.G. Wells's novel is basically a horror film packaged as a sci-fi thrill ride. Instead of a mad slasher, however, Spielberg (along with writers Josh Friedman & David Koepp) utilizes aliens hell-bent on quickly destroying humanity, and the terrifying results that prey upon adult fears, especially in the post-9/11 world. The realistic results could be a new genre, the grim popcorn thriller; often you feel like you're watching Schindler's List more than Spielberg's other thrill-machine movies (Jaws, Jurassic Park). The film centers on Ray Ferrier, a divorced father (Tom Cruise, oh so comfortable) who witnesses one giant craft destroy his New Jersey town and soon is on the road with his teen son (Justin Chatwin) and preteen daughter (Dakota Fanning) in tow, trying to keep ahead of the invasion. The film is, of course, impeccably designed and produced by Spielberg's usual crew of A-class talent. The aliens are genuinely scary, even when the film--like the novel--spends a good chunk of time in a basement. Readers of the book (or viewers of the deft 1953 adaptation) will note the variation of whom and how the aliens come to Earth, which poses some logistical problems. The film opens and closes with narration from the novel read by Morgan Freeman, but Spielberg could have adapted Orson Welles's words from the famous Halloween Eve 1938 radio broadcast: "We couldn't soap all your windows and steal all your garden gates by tomorrow night, so we did the best next thing: we annihilated the world." --Doug Thomas

Reviewed in the United Kingdom 🇬🇧 on March 3, 2016
Just a fantastic film... grew up watching the 1953 black & white film for many years so was glad to see it
come alive in a new light and updated version fantastic out of this world.....
One film you will want to see on a large screen with surround sound... it will blow you away
best for me to say nothing about it so you can enjoy it better....
Nothing worst than knowing what is going to happen
Hope you get to buy a copy and enjoy it as I do
