a film entitled War of the worlds and directed by Steven spelberg introduces tom cruise as a hero who defended his children and rescued her daughter.

the film with a budget USD 135 million is taken from a novel written by H.G Wells with John Friedman and David Koepp as the screenwriters.  war of the worlds is a big, clunky movie with some sensational sights, but not with the expected zest and joyous energy from steven.

the film focuses on the one-show-man character of tom cruise, an immature father. the film develops into a story about catching a dream. walking in an illusion, crawling in an open land, lurking in the shadow, and struggling to win a war.

the film also features Dakota Fanning, a missing daughter, who was ultimately saved in a hysteria situation. there is a better scene than jurassic park’s. the scene is about an alien roaming in the run of a basement.

i think it is an amazing war film that will be one of the top box office films in the world, such as jurassic park, the avenger of the earth, thor, and captain america.
