If you're looking for a story, look elsewhere. War of the Worlds is more like a two hour theme park ride putting you at the center of the biggest battle in Earth's history. You're in the middle of a war zone trying to stay alive. It's a roller coaster ride from hell, twisting and turning till the very end where the ride suddenly and abruptly comes to a stop and people hug and kiss. This may sound a bit cynical but I have to admit, I really did love this film. The last ten minutes not so much, but the majority of the film, yes.
