War of the worlds ending was shit[/quote:9ef76713c4]
The ending is pure Wells. If you haven’t read them then its understandable that you would be put off by the ending(especially being used to films like Independence Day etc). But what did you expect or want? Maybe they could have somehow hacked into the tripods, inserted a trojan horse, disabled the shields and the good old US of A could have launched an airstrike!! Yeehaa!! Go Team America!!
Point is, it’s Wells’ story, and to feck around by adding an ending differant to his style would have been a travesty.
I actually really liked the basement scenes. Tim Robbins was fantastic in them, plus the aliens looked really cool. The scenes added an elemet of horror to the film, and I enjoyed them alot.
