Skip to comments.FraudFactor.com Movie Review: War of the Worlds or Snore of the Worlds?
Posted on 07/15/2005 6:43:51 AM PDT by FraudFactor.com
By producing a re-make of the War of the Worlds movie, the pacifist anti-war Hollywood elitists have contributed yet another cure for insomnia, as well as a "war" movie where the Americans fight but cannot kill the enemy. Instead, the Americans suffer heavy civilian casualties and significant property damage. Then, in an anti-climax ending, the alien enemy is killed off by an acceptable "nonviolent" means - disease due to lack of immunity to the common bacteria on earth for which humans had developed immunity over time. Thus, Mother Nature killed off the aliens for the people, and the people did not need to fight or have military weapons after all. Changes made to the plot and characters from the original 1953 movie to conform to inserted political propaganda and rhetoric damaged the movie. The special effects are not all special and do not rescue the movie. Save your time and money on this one, and listen to the original Orson Welles radio broadcast or see the original 1953 movie.
War of the Worlds suffers from numerous logical holes and contradictions and wasted filler footage.
