I like it. I didn't realize he played the brother too until I saw it again.

I'd watch it just for that bit!

Without a shaddow of doubt, the star of the Pendragon movie was Marvin. Marvin is the moustache on Piana's face. Marvin has had a successful movie career and appeared with many famous onscreen stars over the decades.

Definitely one of life's guilty pleasures, this film.

The effects are so mind-bogglingly awful that they looked like they were cooked up on someone's Atari ST, and the acting would shame any half-decent Am-Dram society. Although, it has to be said, Piana does actually start to really act in the last ten minutes of the film - too little, too late, though.

Pendragon have apparently recently released a Director's Cut which, contrary to other films of the type, is actually shorter and contains less material than the original!

It's bad, is what it is.

It has SOOOO many unnecessary reaction shots, HORRIBLE special effects (except the Flying Machine was SEMI-cool.), horrible acting, and a paper car!

Why are the bottoms of the feet of the Fighting Machines glowing green? It makes NO sense.

UPDATE:

I have purchased the Director's cut!

It's on it's way. My mother bought it for me, actually.

But I also saw the original 3-hour cut. It was so bad it was good.
And I have now seen EVERY War of the Worlds film EVER MADE!
Also, researched Tony Piana. Had never worked before, hasn't worked since.

You know, despite the film being... well, you know... I actually liked Anthony Piana's performance. I couldn't help myself.

He was a bit cheeky, lewd and hammy by turn and was certainly entertaining.

And that killer line...

'What neeeeeeeews today?'

Some of the others weren't so good.

I have got the Director's Cut as well but haven't watched it yet. I will at some point.

If you want bad movies, try Clash of the Titans with Harry Hamlin or maybe Flash Gordon - If a Queen soundtrack can't save a movie nothing can! There is also a great Jason and the Argonaughts around some where, from the late seventies I think.

I want the original 3-hour cut.

I think his best line was "I have anxiety for my wife", saying it with dead eyes.

It's sad, though, how poorly the Tripods were implemented, they were decent-looking models.
Just badly animated and superimposed.
