War of the Worlds: Goliath

Synopsis by Joe Pearson; "It's an R rated, retro-history, steam punk epic set in [the year] 1914, fourteen years after the first failed Martian invasion. Mankind has rebuilt her cities and military adapting a lot of the abandoned Martian technology. They've created an international defense force, A.R.E.S., based on the lower end of Manhattan and under the command of Theaodore Roosevelt. They've built a formidable force centered around giant, steam powered battle tripods. Think of "Band of Brothers" meets "Star Wars", meets World WO. It will be cool-steam powered battle tripods, doomed Cossack cavalry charges, victorian decco, steam punk Manhattan, 1500 foot long armored battle zeppelins, Teddy Roosevelt, souped up Tri-planes, blood on steaming metal, sex in the cockpit. The usual." This 3D movie has a budget of over $5 million, and is being produced by Tripod Entertainment Sdn Bhd (joint venture between Elemental Ventures Sdn Bhd and Epoch Ink Corp). This story is not directly based on Heavy Metal, but it is a sequel to the classic The War Of The Worlds novel by H.G. Wells. It is uncertain how connected this movie is to Heavy Metal. It was originally intended on being part of a series of Heavy Metal Videos. And there are War Of The Worlds: Goliath short stories in the magazine"

I'm not to sure if I like the style (it's sort of that dc animated style). The idea and the mechs are cool. I love the beautiful 2d effects animation (the 3d effects not so much) and that voice acting is a bit weak.

What do you peeps think?

It did remind me a bit of this GI Joe intro to the movie that I think is super boss because it is so effin crazy

haha man that is amazing!


  1. You mean like mindless crap- nobody will remember a month later?

  2. Gregg, you mean like the mindless troll that attacks a movie it hasn't actually seen. That's pathetic. :)
