Audience Reviews for War of the Worlds 2: The Next Wave


Straight to DVD flick which to be honest pretty much looks like it and can't really boast anything worth while in the visual effects stakes. Following from the original film and the Wells novel the plot carries on with the next wave of alien walker attacks, its not really that interesting to be honest as the cast is poor with very basic performances and pretty much all sets and location work are very obvious.

Thing is you just feel your watching the same plot and film from the original all over again, there isn't much new or exciting happening here and it just seems rather pointless. The only plus point I can recall is a reasonable looking sequence where US fighters fight martian spaceships which skips rather close to a certain film called 'Independence Day' but its the only sequence which looks OK. My suggestion? stick with the classic 1953 version ;)

Words can't fully express how horrible this was, Direct to DVD and it shows in a major way. If you want to see a crappy homemade version of Independence Day starring one of the guys from Kid N' Play, this is for you.

Now for those who thought part one was hella' stupid...Forget even watching this one. This one is so far in left field, I think they all were doing crack. Crack kills folks and rots ya' brains..."
