Come on Martians!,
This review is from: War Of The Worlds (2 Disc Special Edition)  [DVD] (DVD)
Should have been set in victorian Britain and followed the fabulous book. This version is awful. Tom Cruise is an awful Dad, with an irritating daughter and odious son. Many films are critised for not getting the viewer to care about the characters, I certainly cared, I was rooting for the martians all along!
It was good of Spielberg to give the aliens from Independence Day a job, it must be so hard for them to find work these days.
