    "...Dynamic fantasy holocaust, the INDEPENDENCE DAY of its day." -- Rating: A-
    Entertainment Weekly

    "Paramount's Technicolor was the era's most vibrant, and Gordon Jennings' now-primitive Oscar-winning effects still look cool in this George Pal production."
    USA Today

    "...George Pal's primitive but Oscar winning special effects still look 'cool' in THE WAR OF THE WORLDS..."
    USA Today

    "Watching the march of the Martian machines across our country, you're taken in not by the dazzling reality of the visual tricks but by their resourcefulness and charming artificiality."
    Wall Street Journal
