If your a fan of any other iteration you will hate this.
Hollywood destroyed everything good about this film.
There was a resounding creepiness that looms over the body snatcher remakes and the original. This film misses that on every mark. No pods... No siren screams... And the ending, well, is a slap in the face to the concept.
If your not a fan or have never seen any other versions you might think it is OK. But thats it, just OK. They screwed up one of the scariest concepts ever thought up. Permormences were OK. It had one or two bright points but overall it was crap.
Take the cgi out of war of the worlds and you have invasion... thats not a good thing.
