Good film
Enjoyed this, certainly deserves better than 5.4/10. so i'll give it a 7.3/10, maimly for the special effects, still don't see why Cruise is so big, must be The Church looking after him.

A Reasonable Effort
Most of the comments here are by people who are incapable of assessing a Tom Cruise performance or film objectively, disregarding his views about religion. This is far better than the atrocious 1953 version because it stays fairly close to the story (well, Tripods for a start)in spite of the inevitable Americanising. The Tim Robbins character is a blend of the minister and the soldier. He was never going to fight back; that was the whole point.

Spielberg's Worst ever Film
Spielberg is a great director, but he really messed up here. Terrible film around, but that girl, I mean, you just wished she'd get swashed right from the start.

Screaming and out of tune singing
The whole film is ruined by Dakota Fannings high pitched hysterical screaming, and Tom Cruise attempting to sing the US National Anthem, is a cringing joke,which tries to link to 'Born on the 4th of July' - Just Horrible. Great Film otherwise. I really enjoyed it. The Tripods are fantastic.
