Right so, saw it last night and I must say I thought it was fantastic. The whole thing was just executed perfectly. The ending was, as Nooptical said, pure Wells, anything else would have been “too Hollywood” and that would include any kind of Terminator 2 type scenario or I-Day 2 type ending. The special effects were used extremely well and the sounds were perfect aswell. The foghorn of the Tripods was especially chilling after a few extermination scenes.
Oh and I must say though. Dakota Fanning? First 20mins? PLEASE DIE A HORRIBLE, HORRIBLE DEATH! Her screaming was unbearable at times… :shock:
