Well, I did not expect anything from the ID sequel. But. I wanted it at least to meet 2016 movie standards. And it did not. The first movie felt like a B movie with a huge budget (props to Nostalgia Critic) and this one feels exactly the same. However, the first movie had some good portion of scale and CGI for 1996, and this one fails to meet the same. Movie did nothing to make me care, none of the characters feel like they were real people, and there's also a lot of them, like really a lot. Some of them have less than 2 minutes of screen time and contribute nothing. Some of them died, and I had no reason to care about them, but it seems that no one does in this movie. Most of the time the biggest threat to human nation is not the alien race, but mostly stupid people. I really can't talk seriously about this movie, so I'll just sum it up fast. The story is worse than in a comic book movie, it really helps to stop caring. The characters are stereotypical, but they all share one thing - all their reactions are mostly comic or funny, like everything in this movie is a joke. As in the first movie, the coincidences were most implausible. The pacing was somewhat weird as well, beating down the aliens didn't really felt so hard. Did I enjoy it in the movie theater? No, however, the CGI was good and there was one really good chase scene. The audience in the theater didn't seen that entertained as well. Well, maybe it was targeted for a much younger audience. What can I say...Hollywood should stop making these type of movies for some time. It just doesn't work any more.
