Added DiffLines:

* Asspull: For many critics and viewers, Robbie's unexplained survival falls squarely under this.


Added DiffLines:

* WhatAnIdiot: Robbie for blindly charging into battle when he sees the US military already being slaughtered, and he's not just a civilian, he's a ''kid''. Nothing he was doing served any other purpose than ([[spoiler: almost]]) getting himself killed.
** Rachel to a lesser extent. She may be just a frightened child, but her ear-piercing screams and decision to run out of the house in a panic serve to very nearly cost her her life despite all of Ray's efforts.
** Manny, the mechanic who was too busy chewing out Ray for commandeering a van parked at his garage while there's a massive panic unfolding all around him as the tripod approaches ''right behind him''. Ray even says ''flat out'' he's gonna die if he doesn't shut up and get in. Sure enough, that's exactly what happens to him.

* BaseBreaker: Rachel is either an adorable [[TheWoobie woobie]] you can't help but feel sorry for, or just an annoying brat who screams too much.
** Others feel that the character as written might have been annoying, but Dakota Fanning's performance was good enough to redeem her.

Added DiffLines:

* SpecialEffectsFailure: While the quality may be up for debate, the quality of the effects is not. The heat-ray was straight out of a '90s video game, the tripods clattered along independently of the surfaces that they were standing on and the [[HollywoodNight nighttime]] was represented by superimposing starry night sky over ''some'' of the visible blue afternoon sky while being filmed in bright sunny daylight.

* JerksssWoobie: Ogilvy's more than a little unhinged, but he's a man who's just lost his entire family. That, combined with watching the world get taken over by aliens, would make anyone have problems.
