Steven Spielberg’s big budget, special effects laden, reinterpretation of H.G. Well’s classic novel finds Ray Ferrier (a divorced father) trying to get his kids Rachel and Robbie back to their mom’s home. However, the trip isn’t easy during an alien invasion but perhaps it takes a tragedy for Ray to realize how much he loves and cares for his kids. I loved this movie because it isn’t just about the aliens but it really shows the love and affection that families can bring. It’s not a remake but rather another story based off of the possibility of an alien attack. It’s a touching tale of love, compassion and determination.
