4.0 out of 5 stars A good remake of the book but could have been better, 9 April 2007
This review is from: The Tripods: Series 1 [DVD] [1984] (DVD)
"The Tripods" has been one of those stories that I have always read great symbolism into - the idea of a society where "the cap" takes away people's creativity and initiative at the coming of age. And although some of the acting isn't first class and the special effects are a little dated, this series was relatively faithful to the original book.

I guess the main disappointment is that for a majority of the series there isn't a sign of any tripods (or just the odd minor sighting) and when there are any encounters with them the lads seem to get away relatively easily and unscaithed. Having said that, the scene where they are trapped under a tripod and manage to trip it up and destroy it is good, and the number of ones then looking for them, including the first sightings of the red ones with guns, builds up some sense of excitement.
