Ray Ferrier (Tom Cruise) is a working class man living in New Jersey. He’s estranged from his family, his life isn’t in order, and he’s too caught up with himself. But the unthinkable and, ultimately, the unexpected happens to him in an extraordinary sense. His small town life is shaken violently by the arrival of destructive intruders: Aliens which have come en masse to destroy Earth.
Don’t care what people say about this movie, Cruise or Spielberg… This is one hell of a trip. I loved the book, I’m thrilled by the movie.
