Independence Day: Resurgence (2016)
Genre: Action, Adventure, Sci-Fi
This is a film that is great if you liked the original or simply looking for a decent enough Sci-fi movie 🙂 . However, it is not as good as the first one. The first film had a unique story line and memorable scenes but this one won’t be as memorable. Though, I was interested enough 🙂 . I liked the new characters introduced (Dikembe Umbutu by Deobia Oparei and Charlie Miller by Travis Tope), and seeing the children older (like Dylan Hiller played by Jessie T. Usher) 😛 . I liked the CGI as it is pretty impressive and the beginning starts well. It has all that nostalgic reminder of the first film, draws you in, introduced characters well and when the aliens attack it is entertaining 😀 . I loved the back-story of Dikembe Umbutu and I really liked the water attack scene (plus loved that crew 😛 ). The build up to the fight was good and the “queen” was scary! This film worked because the reason the aliens are here is more explained than the first film 🙂 . However, the cheesy lines are not so good and the end half of the story starts to falter. It tries and the fight scenes are impressive enough. Actually most of this movie is pretty great and has some surprising deaths. However, parts are predicable, cheesy and the ending just isn’t as good as the beginning 😛 . Enjoy 🙂
I give this film 3.5 Stars out of 5!
