The film you're about to pay for is a pale, wishy washy and rather confusing rehash... which I wish I'd saved money by not buying.
This 2021 remake is a low (zero) budget, unknown actors, rushed plot, laughably wooden acting, dodgy CGI, over use of stock footage of cities & military and the battle scenes look like a bad video game. It trades on the War of the Worlds name, but at best it is a very, very poor TV movie. One for the bin - I'd be too embarrassed to give it to a charity shop. Get the 1950s version or the one with little Tom Cruise instead.
