War of the Worlds

The special effects are superb. Tom Cruise, for all his medical knowledge (or lack thereof), is good in his role as the not-so-good parent. Dakota Fanning, as Cruise’s daughter, probably could’ve mailed this performance in–it wasn’t much of a challenge for her. The story is gripping and you keep wondering what’s going to happen and suddenly at the end, the movie ends.

I’ve not read the book War of the Worlds, so I don’t know what the exact story is and the deviation from the book but I was disappointed in the end.

Maybe I expect more from Steven Spielberg.
