Movie Review: War of the Worlds


My Rating: 3Stars

Tonight I went to see the movie “War of the Worlds” at Broadway Theater, Olympian City.

This is a remake of the original movie in 1953, which was in itself an adaptation of H. G. Well’s novel.

Although, I have not read H. G. Well’s novel or seen the whole of the 1953 version of the movie, but only bits and pieces of the 1953 movie. Steven Spielberg had accurately reproduced the 1953 movie with today’s technologies in his version of the movie. The only thing I wonder is… WHY?

At the moment this movie is very successful at the box office, but it may be the results of publicity and the names of Steven Spielberg and Tom Cruise.

Hollywood had made many movies in the past with similiar story line, but this version is really not as good as movies like “Independence Day“.
