IMO audiences today are just spoiled. They need to be pampered with 100+ million dollar budgets in order to think a movie is good. I loved this movie, because it was fun, told a story, and didn’t try and pamper me with over-priced effects. Truthjfully, I would rather watch this version of War of the Worlds than the over-priced Tom Cruise version. Despite what some may say, the acting was not bad, in fact it was every bit as good as any current A-list actor. Most of the key roles were filled with actors who at one time would have been considered A-list. Just because they are less well known today, doesn’t mean their acting is bad. My hat is off to the producers of this film who understand, that not all of us have to be surprised, pampered, and emotionally stimulated when we watch a movie. Some of us just want to have fun, and that is what this movie is, 90+ minutes of good solid fun. If you are the type person who enjoys a movie like Tremors, then you will love this version of War of the Worlds.
