Reel 2 Reel Movie Reviews: War of the Worlds

War of the Worlds


With the recent negative publicity surrounding Tom Cruise, I'm thinking Amblin Entertainment and Steven Spielberg specifically, must be biting their nails with the potential spill over on to War of the Worlds. In my opinion, any movie-goer who misses this flick because of the personal pitfall position Cruise has put himself in, is denying themselves what will likely be THE movie of the summer of 2005.

War of the Worlds certainly has the star quality that you would expect in a blockbuster, with
Tom Cruise, Dakota Fanning, newcomer Canadian, Justin Chatwin and a short but stunning performance by Tim Robbins. It also has all of the special effects that we demand now from the likes of Spielberg and the Sci-fi genre.

Cruise plays the role of a divorcee, and somewhat deadbeat dad, who not only has to take his two kids for the weekend, but also protect them from the onslaught of a deadly alien race. Cruise does not disappoint in the least in this movie so whether you are a die hard fan of Cruise or Spielberg, or someone just looking for something fabulous on the big screen, this is the movie to see. Waiting for the DVD release is not recommended.

For those of the squeamish nature, be weary as there are some scenes in this movie that literally had my stomach doing flip flops.

The only thing in my mind that would prevent this movie from stealing this coveted title of "movie of the summer" would be if movie-goers saw
Batman Begins.

Enjoy this movie!

Huh! I couldn't stand the movie. If you'd like to see my opinion on it, you can read it at:

(I chopped the addy in two, because it sometimes gets cut off otherwise, in blogland.)

Thanks for the review, though! Always interesting to read another opinion.

NO!!! I have to say I was loving the movie RIGHT up until the last 15 minutes..

I know the original ending and was happy to see it, it was the sickly sweet too good to be true ending that has become the Bane of a Speilberg movie that ruined it for me.. The last 15 minutes for me ruined everything that went before it..
