It's the 20th century and, to the unsuspecting human population, Martians are appearing on Earth with destruction on their mind. While everyone panics, Dr. Clayton Forrester and Sylvia Van Buren join together in hiding out away from all the mayhem.
A small town in California is attacked by Martians, beginning a worldwide invasion.
When Mars invades Earth with lethal war machines, neither the army nor the scientists are able to stop the invaders. However, the influenza virus succeeds where even the most powerful weapon developed by men, the atomic bomb, fails.
A couple of days ago I went to the movie theater to see the 2005 version of "The War of the Worlds". I am not fan of remakes, but I really expected a great movie, with Steven Spielberg updating this fantastic classic. What a waste of time and money: the Spielberg's version is awful when comparing with this naive classic. The state-of-art special effects of this 1953 movie may seem cheesy in 2005, but they are spectacular indeed. The story is very scary, with the indestructible Martians invaders destroying everything and everybody; the heroine screams in danger situations and looks for the arms of the hero, as usual in the movies of those years; and my only restriction refers to the religious connotation of the end of the film. "The War of the Worlds" is a fantastic classic of the sci-fi genre, better and better than the recent version. My vote is nine.
Title (Brazil): "Guerra dos Mundos" ("War of the Worlds")
Note: On 16 April 2002 I saw this film.
On 05 November 2015 I saw this film again. *Possible Spoilers Ahead!*
Just remember this - It was our bacteria not our atomic weapons that literally saved all of us Earthlings from certain annihilation in this somewhat cheesy, alien invasion flick from 1953.
I certainly think that the deadliness of our bacteria is definitely something to keep in mind if ever we find ourselves actually under attack by any mean-minded, marauding Martians, or whoever - Yeah. Just give 'em a good, hearty blast of some of our vilest bacterium. That'll sure show 'em that they can't mess with the likes of us Earthlings (and our germs) and expect to get away with it!
Even though War Of The Worlds contained some mighty striking visuals that were really quite impressive for their time (though now severely dated), I thought that this rather disappointing Alien Invasion/Thriller seriously lacked the essential spark and overall vitality that's clearly required in the better-made Sci-Fi flicks from the 1950s, such as Forbidden Planet, The Monolith Monsters and The Incredible Shrinking Man.
With its story loosely based on the H.G. Wells' novel of the same name, I found this original screen adaptation of War Of The Worlds to be downright dull, sluggish and basically uninspired for the most part.
And what put the biggest damper on the overall drama and terror of the story was the terrible, out-of-place romantic ordeal that unfortunately transpired between Dr. Clayton Forrester and Sylvia Van Buren. Yeah. These 2 were, without question, the dreariest pair of boobs ever thrown together in any Sci-Fi picture for the sake of some unnecessary romantic intrigue.
Anyways - If I were to actually go ahead and compare the 2005 remake of War Of The Worlds (from director Steven Spielberg) to this original version, I'd confidently say that, apart from its greatly pumped-up visual effects, Spielberg didn't do any better when it came to improving on the entertainment value of the story or on making its principle characters more interesting and/or likable. Corona, California, about 50 miles south-southeast of Los Angeles proper. Corona is in Riverside County near where Interstate 15 and route 91 now interesect. Neither highway was there at the time: just the old US 395. Corona was mainly ranches, farms, and woods at the time. It is now a relatively modern, bustling city near where two major Southern California highways and two large California counties (Orange and Riverside) meet. a5c7b9f00b
