More Info:
  • Rene Rodriguez

    Contains all of the hallmarks of classic genre Spielberg: It shows you things you've never seen before, instills an accompanying sense of awestruck wonder, and delivers long stretches of heightened, delirious excitement that remind you why people started going to the movies in the first place.

    Miami Herald Full Review
  • Mick LaSalle

    It is, simply, the alienation-invasion movie to beat all alien-invasion movies: meticulously detailed and expertly paced and photographed, with sights so spectacular and terrible that viewers will have to consciously remind themselves to close their mouths when their jaws drop open.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Ken Tucker

    Steven Spielberg's War of the Worlds is huge and scary, moving and funny--another capper to a career that seems like an unending succession of captivations.

    New York Magazine (Vulture) Full Review
  • Kenneth Turan

    Working in the spirit of his predecessors but with the kind of uncanny special effects they could barely dream of, Spielberg has come up with an impressive production that is disturbing in the way only provocative science fiction can be.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Owen Gleiberman

    An attack-of-the-aliens disaster film crafted with sinister technological grandeur -- a true popcorn apocalypse.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • David Edelstein

    It's the human struggle that makes this a sci-fi masterpiece.

    Slate Full Review
  • Todd McCarthy

    A gritty, intense and supremely accomplished sci-fier.

    Variety Full Review
  • Michael Wilmington

    Rivets and amazes, even if it falls just frustratingly short of the mind-expanding grandeur it could have had.

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • William Arnold

    It's impossible to praise too highly the verve, skill and authenticity with which Spielberg brings off his alien invasion.

    Seattle Post-Intelligencer Full Review
  • Kirk Honeycutt

    Might be too realistic for its own good: The film takes perhaps a little too much glee in its abilities to manufacture mayhem. That being said, the ride is extraordinary.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Colin Kennedy

    Dark and stormy, even gloomy, this is a distinctly autumnal blockbuster from the man who invented summer.

    Empire Full Review
  • Scott Foundas

    The imagery is startling not just for its symbolic resonances, but for the breathless intensity with which it sears the screen.

    L.A. Weekly Full Review
  • Robert Wilonsky

    The filmmaker who once aimed to enchant his audiences with cheerful stories of beatific visitors from outer space now wants only to scare the hell out of us. E.T., as it turns out, is a mass murderer after all, and we are his Reese's Pieces.

    Dallas Observer Full Review
  • Stephen Hunter

    The audience is treated to one extraordinary vision after another; the sense of a world literally being destroyed around the principal actors, the sense of their flight through panic and destruction, the sense of concussion, collapse, rubble and ruin.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Stanley Kauffmann

    Kaminski, who is as good as any cinematographer working today, matches the chromatic tones of shots to their content in ways that can only be called exciting.

    The New Republic Full Review
  • Marc Savlov

    Certainly one of the most lovingly crafted, end-of-the-world, cinematic feasts ever made, a spectacle of destruction and survival not even C.B DeMille could have envisioned.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Peter Travers

    It's those dark visions of destruction that stick, even when Spielberg pushes the script to an unlikely happy ending. Great foreplay, failed orgasm.

    Rolling Stone Full Review
  • David Sterritt

    The film isn't quite excellent, though, since it sags in the middle and starts to seem repetitive.

    Christian Science Monitor Full Review
  • Carrie Rickey

    For the first 100 minutes of his 117-minute film Spielberg holds the audience in a grip of fear. When Ray and Rachel take refuge in the storm cellar of a survivalist (a miscast Tim Robbins), the director's grip relaxes only a bit, but the film never recovers from this excursion into the Gothic.

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • Claudia Puig

    But expect a logical plot, and you'll walk out of the theater with a host of questions, mostly concerning procedural points of the alien attack.

    USA Today Full Review
  • James Berardinelli

    War of the Worlds is not vintage Spielberg, and it's on the grim side for a summer action blockbuster, but it's worth the time and money invested.

    ReelViews Full Review
  • Liam Lacey

    This is B-movie material all the way, yet it's not only watchable, it's engrossing. That's because the material is in the hands of an A-talent director, who knows, as few of his contemporaries do, how to manipulate the plastic qualities of a film: the lighting, editing, composition, camera movement and production values.

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • Shawn Levy

    Alas, Robbins is far more interesting than Cruise, and you wonder what the film would have been like if their roles were reversed -- if Robbins were the loser in search of redemption and Cruise the agitated freak in the basement.

    Portland Oregonian Full Review
  • Pete Vonder Haar

    I thoroughly enjoyed the street level perspective of the world being destroyed, it just would've been nice if they hadn't crapped out at the end.

    Film Threat Full Review
  • Scott Tobias

    In an unfortunate case of star casting, Cruise strains credibility as a hard-edged Jersey dockworker.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Michael Atkinson

    Although it's thoroughly retooled, H.G. Wells's scenario doesn't allow for many soft landings, and the extreme respect for havoc on view quite properly keeps the Spielbergian cutesies to a minimum.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Dana Stevens

    Acting is not really the point of this movie, which seems to arise above all from Mr. Spielberg's desire to reaffirm that he is, along with everything else, a master of pure action filmmaking.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Michael O'Sullivan

    As is his wont, Spielberg can't resist stuffing the ending of the movie with a bit too much cheese and baloney. Despite those quibbles, War of the Worlds is taut, gripping and surprisingly dark filmmaking.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Lou Lumenick

    Now that this technically impressive - but seriously flawed and self-referential - remake is finally in theaters to swell the July 4 weekend box office, conversation will doubtless shift to the lamest ending yet to a Steven Spielberg movie.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Ty Burr

    War of the Worlds pushes some of the right buttons and enough of the wrong ones to make you wish that Spielberg would move on from aliens already and use his unparalleled talents to focus once more on earth.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Aaron Hillis

    Has masterfully polished mechanics, some of the most seamless CGI effects in recent memory, and the Wells veneration is admirable. However, the film takes far too many creative shortcuts, like bookended narration and aliens that make strategically humanlike mistakes, completely incongruous to their technological superiority.

    Premiere Full Review
  • Michael Sragow

    Forget what Tom Cruise does outside his movies: What he does inside his movies is more than enough to wreck them.

    Baltimore Sun Full Review
  • Maitland McDonagh

    It unfolds in the angst-haunted shadow of the 9'11 terror attacks and teeters on a thin edge of sheer panic.

    TV Guide Full Review
  • David Denby

    It’s the right role for Cruise, but the movie is so devoted to him, so star-driven, that it begins to seem a little demented.

    The New Yorker Full Review
  • Roger Ebert

    A big, clunky movie containing some sensational sights but lacking the zest and joyous energy we expect from Steven Spielberg.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • Jami Bernard

    Go for the extraordinary special effects, by all means, but not if you want to feel good about yourself or humanity. And heed the PG-13 rating, because this movie takes no prisoners.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Richard Corliss

    The new film is a toss-up with George Pal's very watchable 1953 version: the special effects are even better here, the drama even lamer.

    Time Full Review
  • Jonathan Rosenbaum

    Newly updated but shamelessly hokey, Steven Spielberg's version of the 1898 H.G. Wells yarn about murderous invaders from outer space starts off as a nimble scare show like "Jaws."

    Chicago Reader Full Review
  • Stephanie Zacharek

    Extravagant in movie terms but stingy in emotional ones, it embodies all of Spielberg's bad impulses and almost none of his good ones: It's a grand display of how well he knows how to work us over, and yet the desperation with which he tries to get to us is repulsive. Full Review
  • Joe Morgenstern

    With this genuinely big entertainment, powered by a beating heart, Steven Spielberg has put the summer back in summer movies.
