In Steven Spielberg’s version of the H.G. Wells classic, aliens invade earth and one man gets thrust into the center of the battle. After strange lightning activity shuts down all electronic devices, Ray (Tom Cruise) learns that the aliens have been underground for perhaps centuries, waiting to rise. Rushing with his kids to their mother’s house in Boston, they contend with apocalyptic surroundings and people gone mad. They stop at a man’s house for safety but Ray must kill him when he becomes too much of a liability. When confronted with a giant human harvesting machine, Ray devises a plot to get a grenade inside of it without getting killed himself. In the end, Ray reunites the family while the aliens die from germs.
