“On the downside, like most adaptations of the book, the ending of War of the Worlds: The Attack feels abrupt and poorly integrated into the story as a whole. Even Spielberg’s mega-budget version couldn’t find a solution to that problem […] War of the Worlds: The Attack is an excellent example of sci-fi done on a tight budget.” 3.5 out of 5, Voices from the Balcony
