    Major disappointment!

    This film has great special effects, but not much else. If you love the 1953 version, the story line here will drive you crazy. Whether or not you like Tom Cruise, this script was just plain weak and illogical. (And as much as I like Dakota Fanning, if she screamed one more time...) If you want a great alien invasion movie, pick "Independence Day" or "Signs".

    Lame!

    Don't get too excited about watching this movie because it will be a total letdown! This movie was completely ridiculous and filled with many holes. Such as, how come the lower class people were running for their lives while the rich were just hanging out at home munching on caviar, merely waiting for the aliens to get bored and go home? Blecch! The one highlight of the movie is Dakota Fanning who is such an incredible actress that you can't help but watch until the movie ends. In fact, she keeps the movie going. Otherwise, nada.

    A disappointment

    Despite Tom Cruise's recent craziness, we thought this movie would still be worthwhile because it was a Spielberg movie. We were very disappointed. While the special effects were terrific, the acting was terrible, the characters unbelievable and the human story undeveloped. The ending suggested that they pretty much wanted to wrap up the project and move onto the next one - glad we didn't waste $8.50 to see it on the big screen.
