On one hand the movie is a game, a conscious display... of Spielberg's technical mastery; on the other it reaches toward what might be prophecy, or passionate allegory, or exhortation to mindfulness of real human suffering. Full Review
The New York Review of Books
Aug 21, 2018
Spielberg's calculations turn out to be more prominent than any effects they could possibly produce, and the less pretentious 1953 version by producer George Pal emerges as more likable. Full Review

Rating: B+ -- The story is affecting, the action scenes are thrilling, the issues are resonant. Full Review
Aug 15, 2013
Overall, the film is too lacking in feeling to provide a recognizably human experience.
Jul 14, 2005
Rating: 2.5/4 -- Moves from one action set piece to another, seeing everything only through the eyes of its main characters, and in doing so avoids many sci-fi clichés. Full Review

The film succeeds as pure sensation, an exacting distillation of fear. Full Review
Time Out

There likely won't be a more gripping film this year than Spielberg's War Of The Worlds, which at its best glides along like choreography with a camera, slowly parsing out information while shrouding the rest in shadow and suggestion.

Product Description:

Definitely not to be confused with the Spielberg film of the same name and year, David Michael Latt's spirited low-budget adaptation of Wells's timeless novel--updated to modern times--is dark and entertaining, with game and engaging performances from stars C. Thomas Howell, Jake Busey, and Rhett Giles.
