Ray Ferrier (Cruise) is a divorced dockworker and somewhat less-than-perfect
father. Soon after his ex-wife (Miranda Otto) and her new husband drop off his
teenage son Robbie (Justin Chatwin) and young daughter Rachel (Dakota Fanning)
for a rare weekend visit, a strange and powerful lightning storm touches down.
Moments later, Ray witnesses an extraordinary event that will change all their
lives forever. A towering three-legged war machine emerges from deep beneath the
earth; an ordinary day has suddenly become the most extraordinary event of their
lifetimes - the first strike in a cataclysmic alien attack on Earth.
Ray scrambles to get his children away from this merciless new enemy, embarking on a journey that will take them across the ravaged countryside, where they become caught in the desperate tide of refugees fleeing from an extraterrestrial army of Tripods. But no matter where they run, there is no safety, no refuge: only Ray's unconquerable will to protect the ones he loves...

Very watchable and amazing special effects but lacks something when compared to the 1953 original. Tom Cruise battles the aliens that we presume are from Mars.
