The key to these type of movies, for me, is to succeed in achieving fear in the viewer. This movie accomplished that and allowed me to overcome having to watch Tom Cruise and Dakota Fanning for 2 hours (not a fan of either). I never heard the original broadcast, so I do not know how much of that played into the film. This is worth the watch for Sci-Fi and apacolypse type movie fans.

Some nice visual effects but otherwise Spielberg's weakest film in an age as it's infested with Devlin/Emmerich style cheese.

I liked it OK. Would have liked it more with someone else doing the Tom Cruise character.

One of Spielberg's weaker films. The best stuff doesn't even involve the aliens, sadly.

There's a grim lifelessness to this movie that sucks the energy out of it. I get that it's a realistic take on an alien invasion, but the whole ordeal feels hopeless from the start. The ending feels hurried and caps what is an often muddy and poorly-handled plot. Not a fun film to watch.
