Historically accurate (partly due to the large number of veterans from both sides working as advisors on the film) and well paced, this movie takes you through the key events and nicely evokes the sense of a huge, sprawling, barely-controlled invasion. Huge cast of just about everyone who was around at the time, including the guy who wrote the theme music. Some of the script and performances are a little dated, but it's very watchable and has planty of impressive pre-CGI spectacle.
