War of the worlds Goliath (2012) – By Jason S. Lockard

I love H.G. Wells stories and with "War of the Worlds" in the title I think we all know from the get go we are in for a H.G. Wells type story. We all know the classic story! We have no doubt all seen the classic 1950s movie. Maybe even the multiple remakes, but where does ‘Goliath’ come in at? What is Goliath?! Let’s find out!

The film takes place in a parallel universe in the year 1915! It has been 15 years since the original Martian invasion those Martians have long since expired. Now the Martians have solved the bacterial problem that killed the first wave and now their back for revenge! But the world has prepared themselves by creating the Allied Resistance Earth Squadrons, A.R.E.S. for short. Lead by a Russian general and Teddy Roosevelt himself! This rematch finds the A.R.E.S. battle tripod GOLIATH on the frontlines. Can A.R.E.S. and Goliath defeat the Martians once and for all! You’ll have to watch the film to find out!

While I like the idea of the story; but I felt as though the story was abandoned in favor of video game type action! While the animation is really awesome and the score is really nice; explosions and a haunting score does not make a good film. This film is not a fail by any means. Teens will love the action, but for the small kids there is a pretty fair amount of adult language and violence. But for adults sci-fi violence is just not enough! If your interested in checking this film out here is the info.

The Blu-ray and Blu-ray 3D combo pack is filled with awesome bonus features. Including a trailer, making of feature, storyboards, motion comic stories before the war and more. This is an awesome Blu-ray!

So if you love the shoot’em up type animation, this is a must have. For more info head over to www.wotw-goliath.com or your local Blu-Ray DVD provider and pick up your copy today!
