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

½

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 ;)

There are words... and they're strung into sentences that are then spoken by the characters... but there seems to be a disconnect between the techno-babble spoken and what's actually being presented on screen. So War of the Worlds 2 leaves you to figure out the plot for yourself. I guess there's some nifty ideas present? They're just all squandered by the cheapness and slapdashery of it all.

Everything bad about the first movie is even worse in this one! One of the worst film's I've ever seen!
