A plane and its inhabitants are caught in a cloud of gas and fire, where all are killed in the ensuing explosion.
Alien beams are fired at several helicopters, with their inhabitants onboard, and erupt into flames. The wreckage falls from the sky to the ground below in ruins.
The alien ships fire large beams of energy on several famous landmarks and cities (Los Angeles, New York City, and Washington D.C.) which shows massive destruction on a large scale. People are incinerated (not directly shown), vehicles are thrown through buildings and are heavily smashed and crushed by falling objects. Buildings are blown to pieces, including the ESB, the White House, the Congress Building, etc. Structures are ripped to shreds by clouds of gas and fire. Very intense and very disturbing
Two dead and bloodied corpses are shown lying on the ground, while a woman gasps at first sight the horror of one victim. Brief, but startling.
A large scale aerial battle occurs between the humans and aliens each with aircraft of their own kind, that are shot down, burned, damaged or blown up, (especially the human's defense). Many people die in this sequence. Very intense.
An alien creature awakens from unconsciousness while surgeons are performing autopsy on it, and apparently kills several of the surgeons. Very intense scene.
A dead human body is slammed against a window, while an alien creature makes it "talk".
Several guards open gunfire on an alien creature with several blows, including a couple to the head of the deity, which screams in pain.
An attempt is made to counterattack an alien ship by destroying it with a nuclear missile, eventually failing but detonates anyway, destroying everything in its path, though the city was said to have been evacuated so human casualties would have been at a minimum.
A second aerial battle occurs between the aliens and humans, with many resulting deaths of both sides' fighters, that are destroyed on a large scale, with endless explosions and beams fired upon opposing armies.
A man sacrifices himself to save the human race by flying into an alien ship's beam, which causes a massive explosion of the ship that kills many of the aliens dwelling aboard.
A chemical bomb/missile is implanted inside the alien mothership in space, that detonates and erupts in a fiery, destructive shockwave obliterating all alien life forms in the process. Later, debris falls from the sky to the earth.
