It was exciting and intense and then it ended and I was like damn, where's the climactic ending? But I knew what I was getting into and anyone who remembers anything about Wells will know how this sucker is going to end but I had just hoped that Steve would have brought something new to the finish.
Either way I walked out and I couldn't stop talking, not just about this movie but about movies in general. and even if once out of the theather I realized about a dozen parts of that movie that are purely ridiculous (even if you do believe in aliens and tripod killer robots) even though the ending was a bit of a let down, even though Tim Robbins is just weird, if anything this movie just made me excited about movies. Spielberg hasn't made a masterpiece but he has made a truly exciting movie and in this day and age, a movie that continues to excite even after the credits have rolled is rare indeed.
