His ex-wife, Mary Ann (Miranda Otto), later drops off  the children, 10-year old Rachel (Dakota Fanning) and teenager Robbie (Justin Chatwin), at Ray's house in Bayonne on her way to visiting her parents in Boston. Unexplained changes in the weather occur, emitting lightning that strikes multiple times in the middle of an intersection and disrupting all electrical technology in thearea.Ray finds where multiple lightning strikes have hit the ground, from which a massivethree-legged machine emerges and with alien weaponry, incinerates most of thewitnesses . Ray collects his children and drives to Mary Ann's home in suburban New Jersey to take refuge. The next morning Ray discovers a Boeing 747 hascrashed in the street outside the house. He finds a small news team who reveal that the aliens have also attacked major world cities including New YorkCity, Washington D.C andLondon and that the aliens entered the machines in capsules via the lightning. Ray decides to take the kids to Boston to be with their mother. Robbie, trying to join the fight against the aliens, tries to leave with the U.S. military, and the three are forced to leave their car after a mob takes it by force. They later survive a Tripod attack which causes a Hudson River  ferry to sink. During a desperate battle between the U.S. Marines and the aliens, Ray is forced to choosebetween being separated from Rachel and preventing Robbie from joining the fight; Ray lets him go with the soldiers and disappears. The Tripods are shown to beprotected by an energy shield that makes them invulnerable and the Marines are overwhelmed. While escaping, Ray and Rachel are offered shelter by Harlan Ogilvy(Tim Robbins), who presumes that the aliens had buried their technology on Earth eons ago and that he and Ray can deduce their weaknesses by observing them -their refuge is right in the middle of an alien camp.The three remain undetected for two days even as a probe and a group of the aliens themselves explore the basement. The next morning, Ogilvy suffers a mentalbreakdown while witnessing a Tripod harvesting human blood and tissue to fertilize a red weed. Concerned that the aliens may hear Ogilvy's madness, Ray kills Ogilvy to silence him. The basement hideout is exposed when a second probe catches them sleeping. Ray stops the probe with an axe, but Rachel runs outside, where thelandscape has been consumed by alien plants, and she is caught by the guarding Tripod. Ray finds a grenade and allows himself to be abducted, placed in the samebasket with Rachel and other prisoners. As the aliens select him for harvesting, Ray takes a belt of grenades into the machine which makes it explode and release thecages.Ray and Rachel arrive in a devastated Boston, where the red weed is dying and the Tripods are collapsing. Ray notices birds landing on a nearby Tripod, indicatingthat their shields are down. Ray alerts the soldiers escorting his refugee group and they defeat it. Ray and Rachel reach Mary Ann's parents' house, where they arereunited with Mary Ann and, to their surprise, Robbie. The closing narration reveals that the aliens had no immunity to the bacteria on Earth and humanity had earnedits ownership of the planet.
