Synopsis

HG Wells' pioneering sci-fi story about Earth being invaded by Martians is shifted from Victorian Surrey to 21st-century New Jersey for this big-budget movie version. It is, though, still the story of an ordinary man who becomes a refugee in his own country as the people panic when they realise that neither politicians nor the military have any answer to the massive alien tripods striding across the landscape. Tom Cruise stars and Steven Spielberg directs this unusually sombre action adventure movie.

What our educators say

"Some of them saw a clip from Wakolda (The German Doctor) on TV recently and really wanted to watch it. So I thought I’d take a chance, not expecting them to watch the whole film but the majority were absolutely gripped. "
