Independence Day 3D: Resurgence

Independence Day 3D: Resurgence


We had twenty years to prepare, so did they.

Roland Emmerich, director of the '90s sci-fi blockbuster original Independence Day, returns for another large-scale invasion. Takes place decades onward, where Earth has learned new tricks from the alien technology left behind after the first attack. Sequel sees the return of Jeff Goldblum and Bill Pullman, alongside Liam Hemsworth (The Hunger Games) and Maika Monroe (It Follows). Will Smith does not star, however - his character died in an accident.

Independence Day:Resurgence
Really, ha ha, I gotta laugh. It was good, but soo much like the original. More characters and anyone can die like ‘Game of Thrones’. Filmed in parts like ‘Cloverfield’ but not as shaken or stirred, mixed with ‘Explorers’ and ’The Day the Earth Stood Still’ splashes of ‘Alien’ (series). Easy to follow and good for a popcorn date or hanging with mates. Nothing huge to report here.
Genre : Action, Sci-Fi, Adventure, faith?
3/5 : Good film, but I... More felt it lacked enough to make it a great film. I found the 3D experience distracting rather than supporting, so my preference would be 2D standard film viewing.Hide

  • As spectacular as you'd hope from a sequel to the 1996 planet-toaster, and as amusingly cheesy. You'll enjoy yourself enough that you won't even miss Will Smith. Full Review

  • The most planet-smashingly boring sci-fi sequel in history. Full Review

  • An insanely OTT sequel to the already-ludicrous-enough alien invasion smash. Full Review

  • Delivers swiftly and generously when it comes to the goods most viewers will have come for - the time-honored joys of blowing stuff up, in set pieces that escalate dizzyingly in size and context. Full Review

  • The main thing consumers will be looking for from Resurgence is bang-for-buck entertainment, and that it delivers reasonably successfully. Full Review
