Hey Look, Aliens, in America, how different....

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...

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.

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

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

Hanging over it all is the question of why the film was worth making at all, except as a pure bid for profit.

Any further sequel (which this clearly hints at) would be ill advised.

A derivative mash-up of bigger, better franchises.

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

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.
