I liked it
I wish it would have been longer and 1 and 1/2 hours didnt do it justice but i really liked that it was based on old HGWells Novel and so it was more
of a classic. Acting was great and sound effects let me amagine I was there in the past in England.
This is an all-around wonderful adaptation of Wells's masterpiece. The script is crisp and true to the time period (1898). The acting is top-notch, and you genuinely believe the narrator IS in 1898 England fleeing Martians. An amazing piece of work. I highly, highly, highly recommend it.
