War of The Worlds Review

Watched War of the Worlds yesterday. Impressions just after watching the movie:

What crap!!!

Impressions after sleeping over it:

  • I expected more good, mindless fighting.
  • The “human” touches were often incongruous.
  • The ending scene was improbable, illogical, AND sucked.
  • Some scenes wont make sense unless you’ve read the book.

    Ok, so I’m being very critical here; but this is a Spielberg movie with Tom Cruise and Dakota Fanning in it, so it’s perfectly alright for me to have very high expectations, which Spielberg met in only in a few scenes (for example the one involving the car).

Final verdict: Go watch the movie, but leave your expectations outside the theatre please.
