      Based on the novel by H. G. Wells, this remake directed by Steven Spielberg and starring Tom Cruise, Dakota Fanning, Miranda Otto and Tim Robbins is a science-fiction/fantasy movie.

      It’s the story of one family fighting to survive the invasion of the Earth by aliens in the form of towering three-legged war machines. Ray Ferrier (Tom Cruise) is a divorced dad of two


      who finds himself in the company of his two kids Robbie (Justin Chatwin) and Rachel (Dakota Fanning) after his ex-wife and her husband drops them off for a weekend visit.

      A powerful lightning storm suddenly occurs. Near his house, Ray witnesses a towering three-legged war machine emerge from the ground and incinerate everything it sees.

      Ray and his children scramble to get away ...


      • from the aliens and decide to go to the countryside where they along with hundreds of refugees try to flee from the extraterrestrials. Ray has to do everything in his power to protect his children even if he dies protecting them.

        This is one visually stunning movie. The special effects are awesome, too awesome that it’s really scary (imagine creatures emerging from the

        ground near your house).

        Once again, Steven Spielberg shows us why he’s one of the greatest directors in Hollywood. I liked the gripping action scenes and blowing up scenes.

        Tom Cruise and Dakota Fanning played their roles well (but Dakota was better). One thing I didn’t like though, is the predictable ending.

        But overall, War of the Worlds is still one movie not to be missed.
