War Of The Worlds
Most of this review deleted due to the fact that no words can describe just how bad this film is
The only thing that is left to say is that it lost me after roughly 15 words. The opening speech of the original is quite famous. Essentially saying that we were being watched by advanced intelligences and suspected nothing. That works, for the end of the 19th century.
2005 however, I'm pretty sure that a fairly large proportion of the planet could quite easily be persuaded that we were being watched, that there is more intelligent life out there, and that it may well be belligerent.
When a film manages to lose your suspension of disbelief that quickly, there's something wrong.
