In a parallel universe, World War I is interrupted by an invasion from the planet Mars a renewed attempt following the first failed attack fifteen years before. We follow the gripping story of human resistance fighters battling this second invasion of the martians. Earth was laid waste during the first attack in 1899, by 80 ft tall heat ray spewing martian battle tripods-but the invaders ultimately fell victim to Earths tiny bacteria. Now in 1914, humanity has rebuilt its shattered world by reverse engineering captured Martian technology. Equipped with giant, steam powered tripod battle machines, iron clad zeppelins and heat ray biplanes, the international planetary army, A..R.E.S. is humanity's first line of defense against the return of the rapacious Martian invaders. And return the Martians do, with even more advanced alien technology and immunity against Earth's microbes. The rematch finds the A.R.E.S. battle tripod goliath, on the frontlines of a vicious interplanetary offensive. In the crucible of combat, the young international crew helming the goliath will be tested to the limits of their endurance and courage as they fight for humanity's very survival against an implacable enemy.

This is a great movie! It picks up 15 years after the original Jules Verne war of the worlds. THERE'S ACTUALLY LIGITIMATE STRATEGY INVOLVED and lots of good guys get killed. There is no plot armour involved which is super refreshing in this kind of movie. The Alien force ACTUALLY has adapted and learned from round 1. Very underrated. Anybody who loves steampunk, alternative history and over the top historical characters will love this.

A curious idea for an alternate universe.
And there are some good backgrounds and interesting machines, for a while,.. but the mouths move stiffly and faces are too cardboard, and the characters feel gung ho 'plastic'.
Couldn't recommend it.
