Critic Consensus: No consensus yet.
In a parallel universe, World War One is imminent as we follow the gripping story of human resistance fighters who march to battle against the second invasion of the Martians. In 1899, the Earth was attacked by ruthless invaders from the planet Mars. The Martians' 80 ft tall, heat-ray spewing, Tripod battle machines laid waste to the planet, but the invaders ultimately fell prey to Earth's tiny bacteria. Fifteen years later, Man has rebuilt his shattered world, in large part by utilizing captured Martian technology. Equipped with giant, steam-powered Tripod battle machines, the international rapid reaction force, is Mankind's first line of defense against the return of the rapacious Martian invaders. And return the Martians do. The rematch finds the multinational battle squad tripod "Goliath" on the front-lines of a vicious interplanetary offensive. This time the Martians are using even more advanced alien technology. In the crucible of combat, the young crew helming the mighty Goliath will be tested to the limits of their endurance and courage as they fight for Mankind's very survival under the onslaught of an implacable enemy.

Critic Reviews for War of the Worlds: Goliath
"War of the Worlds: Goliath" is just a few cereal commercials shy of a pointlessly cartoon marathon - violent, messily drawn and lifelessly dragging.
Noisy battle scenes a la 'Transformers' and 'Starship Troopers' mar this pedestrian animated sequel to H.G. Wells' original story.
Considering that the fate of humankind is at stake, "War of the Worlds: Goliath" is remarkably uninvolving.
Like a feature-length Saturday morning cartoon with dashes of violence so graphic you'd swear you'd just stepped into Ralph Bakshi's Wizards.
