Follow War of the Worlds: The True Story (2012) WAR OF THE WORLDS THE TRUE STORY is based on the most beloved alien invasion story of all time by Father of Science Fiction, H.G. Wells. Like Wells' classic book that was presented as a news reporter's first hand memoirs, and the famous 1938 Orson Welles radio broadcast that caused Americans to believe an actual invasion was in progress, WAR OF THE WORLDS THE TRUE STORY assumes the world knows there was a war between Earth and Mars in the year 1900 and is presented as the eyewitness account of Bertie Wells, the last living survivor of the Earth/Mars War as he struggles to find his wife amidst the destruction of humankind at the hands of terrifying alien invaders. 6.8 Average User Rating 2 votes Rate This Item Your Rating: 0 Submit User Reviews (0) Write A Review Release Year:2012Genre:Alien, Alien Invasion, Alien/UFO, Mocumentary, Sci-Fi, UFOTagline:There was a war between Earth and Mars - The Last Survivor's Eyewitness Account.Plot Setting:TBD (Pending Review)Camera Type:Film CameraFilming Reason:Document Event, Mocumentary, News FootageCamera Mode:DaytimeDirector:Timothy HinesWriter:H.G.

It’s not even found footage, not even close. More like a mockumentary. All I can say is that all the glowing reviews you see everywhere are most likely fake. FoundFootageCritic Mockumentaries fall under our definition of found footage. In the case of WAR OF THE WORLDS: THE TRUE STORY (2012), the film is a composite of found footage, interviews, voice over narratives of photos/articles, and reenactments. As for the other ratings you refer to, we have not reviewed the film internally (within our site) yet and reserve judgement until we’ve fully scrutinized the film. reddalek555 I think you’re confusing this with a found footage POV film. Seeing as the old interview and war footage was supposed to have been discovered, that technically counts as found footage. No, this is not a POV film. But as a longtime avid dedicated fan of HG Wells The War of the Worlds and anything related to the story, this is a solid attempt at retelling the narrative in a compelling and fresh manner. This film has a long and complicated history. Considering the efforts made by the director in the past, this is definitely a much better result.
