Independence Day (1996)
Genre: Action, Adventure, Sci-Fi
This is one of those classic Science Fiction movies you love to watch simply because it is a good alien/disaster movie 😛 . This film has an almost nostalgic feel to it as it screams 90’s 😛 . The characters may be stereotypical but they work for this film and my favourites are President Thomas J. Whitmore (Bill Pullman), David Levinson (Jeff Goldblum) and Julius Levinson (Judd Hirsch). The best section of this film is the beginning 😀 . The way the aliens arrive is awesome and hints to the “destruction” that will soon follow 😛 . Also the iconic destruction of certain buildings in America is awesome! I loved that scene and how the characters tried to escape. Even the aftermath was pretty cool too. The CGI in this film (on explosions and the aliens) actually isn’t that bad and doesn’t affect the film. The second half of the film is slower and doesn’t captivate as much as it could do. Though the story is captivating enough plus the reactions between characters are charming like the relationship between David and Julius. Plus the scene with Captain Steven Hiller (Will Smith) and the alien is cool and the speech from the President is awesome!! 😀 . This is a great film that any Sci-Fi Fan will happily appreciate! Enjoy 🙂
I give this film 4 Stars out of 5!
