Yesterday, I went to watch Tom Cruise’s War of the Worlds. I wasn’t quite sure what I was expecting in terms of quality. One reviewer said that the movie was disappointing and that he couldn’t come to care for the main characters because in a time of crisis such as was being depicted, why should we as the viewers care about one man and his children when entire cities were being destroyed? Another reviewer said that the movie was a “must see” and was greatly entertaining.
I’m going to have to agree with the second reviewer.
