Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
Steven Spielberg teaming with Tom Cruise in an adaptation of a classic sci-fi text had a lot of promise. And for the most part it delivers. The film especially excels in the opening hour when the aliens first invade, leaving a path of destruction and death in their wake. The film drifts towards the end and the very Spielberg conclusion robs the story of its power but this remains a really strong entry into the directors considerable cannon.
