Please don't spend money on this.
Absolutely the worst movie.
what a terribly boring film. I'm sorry but this is absolutely not deserving of best picture and will be forgotten quickly. Entertaining and engaging cinema? No. Nothing performances with flat faces and mistaking silence for subtlety.
Independence Day, one of the biggest blockbusters of the 90s, is one of those "love it or hate it" kind of movies. There are those that defend it and those that despite it. Somehow, I don't think there are very many people defending this one. It brings in the big-budget CGI and destruction scenes like the first one does. Here, however, there is more effort put toward the world built after the events of the first movie, which is pointless given that it all gets destroyed here. The destruction scene in this movie, what the first is most famous for, is really short, and extremely ridiculous. It does, however, look spectacular. Even if the visuals can't make the movie good, you gotta appreciate the effort that went into making the movie look as good as it does. The characters are bland and forgettable. I don't even remember them. I know one of the guys is named Jake, but I don't remember which one. I also remember that there's a girl named Rey, but only because of Star Wars. They're action movie characters. This is the type of movie you go to just to watch aliens blow stuff up, and nothing else. Therefore, there's one thing this movie shouldn't be: boring. But it is. When there's no fighting or blowing up, it's just dull. Fun to look at, yes, but not at all interesting. It doesn't even have comic relief or anything like that. Worst of all, the ending was just a massive slap in the face. Without giving too much away, it's supposed to set up Independence Day 3, something I'm not really looking forward to at all.
This movie is total and Complete Garbage And it's sad because the First movie was So good. Cliche Dailogue, Cheesy and Ridiculous. Seriously Stop make this Crap Sequels
Incredible garbage. What a shame that the epic movie of 1996 has such a desastrous 2nd part - simply don't waste your time on watching it...

Loved the original "Independence Day", bit the follow up. 20 years later, is a weak copy. Not least is Will Smith missing. something I never thought I would be writing, but his 'son' (played by Jessie T. Usher) is so much a weaker actor.
Liam Helmsworth is so much better, in every way, than Usher, who is more like a shadow, sadly.The story is OK, not brilliant, but OK, while the original also crams out a better story, better action from Judd Hirsh, and Jeff Goldblum (why isn't Will Smith part of the cast - too costly?).As I wrote, why isn't Will apart of the story?!Without, it is a lame update.
