An earth-shattering adventure that both rivets and amazes, War of the Worlds reunites superstar Tom Cruise and Academy Award-winning director Steven Spielberg for one of the most awe-inspiring cinematic experiences of all time!

A contemporary retelling of H.G. Wells' classic, the sci-fi thriller reveals the extraordinary battle for the future of humankind through the eyes of one American family. Fleeing from an extraterrestrial army of killer Tripods that annihilate everything in their path, Ray Ferrier (Cruise) races to keep his family safe. War of the Worlds is an action-packed adventure that explodes with spectacular special effects!

 Excellent Steelbook, Amazing Soundtrack, Good Family Film.

The steelbook is beautiful and maybe on par with the recent release of the Iron man steelbook (I think all Paramount steelbooks should be like this).
This may not be one of the best films out there but it is a good family film with some decent acting. I see people ain't to happy with the grain effect on this blu-ray but the picture does enjoy a strong film-like look thanks to a thick layer of grain that's maybe even a bit heavier than that seen in Minority Report and Saving Private Ryan. War of the Worlds does not offer high definition "eye candy" in the traditional sense, but it is reflective of the way the film is supposed to look, which is the ultimate compliment to any Blu-ray, no matter how rough around the edges it may be. The thing thats makes this blu-ray one to own is the soundtrack that devastates sound systems with a reference-quality DTS-HD MA 5.1 lossless soundtrack.

A must own for any blu-ray/steelbook/audiophile.

 Beautiful Steelbook

This is a beautiful Steelbook. It's embossed/debossed, just like the recent Mission Impoosible Ghost Protocol, and has a nice glossy finish. The inside art is black and white concept art.

The contents of the disc are the same as the previous release.

Highly recommended, especially at this price.

 Poor Transfer

Very poor and grainy transfer, is this a fault. I was really looking forward to having this in HD, but this transfer is no better than the DVD I have.

I purchased the Jaws Blu Ray, WOW what an excellent transfer, so why is this Blu Ray so poor, does not make sense.

Without doubt, I feel this is one of the finest steelbooks Play.com has released (in my opinion). In fact, it's extremely similar to the super desirable Iron Man steelbook in terms of design and feel.

The title on the front is embossed, complimented by a slightly debossed border. The back cover has no embossing or anything fancy, but the images used on both the front and back cover are of a very high quality and very striking. Theres a black and white print on the inside that runs the length of the steebook and the disc's are completely standard (no artwork).

The quality of the Blu ray transfer is fine, yet grainy (as in keeping with the film). There are a few extras included, but nothing special - just the usual. Given the design, I feel this is one steelbook to watch. Grab it while you can.

 another Spielberg masterpiece.

Great looking steelbook. I cannot understand why this film did not get great reviews. In my opinion this is one of the best films i have ever seen.
