FRI­DAY WAR OF THE WORLDS

Sunday Tasmanian - Tassie Living - - WEEK IN MOVIES -

8.30PM, SCT ★★★★

In time-shift­ing H.G. Wells’ clas­sic 1898 novel about an alien in­va­sion into the present day, mas­ter film­maker and con­sum­mate show­man Steven Spiel­berg spir­its us to the brink of a ter­ri­fy­ing apoc­a­lypse few would think pos­si­ble on the big screen. At the very height of its power – which only di­min­ishes at the iffy fi­nale – the over­whelm­ing ex­cite­ment, dan­ger and pal­pa­ble ner­vous en­ergy gen­er­ates a last­ing awe. Stars Tom Cruise.
