Two decades after the freak alien invasion that nearly destroyed mankind a new threat emerges. This Alien mothership is more than twice the size as the last one and once again, the world's armies must band together to save the world. Do they have enough firepower or will this battle change and will aliens take over?

On the Air Force fighter helmets the USA flag on the right side is shown backwards (that is the blue field and white stars are located at the top left corner). This is a common mistake made by those who have not served in the US military. As a general rule the blue field of the US flag is always to be presented in the top left corner whenever the colors are flown. The one exception to this rule is when the flag is worn this on a military uniform. The colors will always present an advancing image. Imagine the flag being flown on a staff and carried by a US Army Cavalry trooper riding into battle, the blue field would be leading the flag and the stripes would be waving behind the trooper. This is the image invoked when the flag is worn on a uniform regardless of which side of the uniform the flag is worn. See more »
I was looking very much forward to it, since I'm a fan of the original (nostalgia based). 15 minutes into the movie I just knew it was going to be bad.
Made by the same director that made the movie 2012, it has the same terrible drama and completely transparent storyline. I'm not even sure if there even is a storyline to this movie.
The worst part, aside from all the crying scenes based upon long distance relationships, unresolved father issues and what not, was in fact that the aliens are more primitive than us.
You would think that a race with such insane technology have evolved beyond petty and shortsighted impulse driven emotions. It's when you realize that the Queen of the aliens suddenly gets a personal vendetta against a yellow school bus while fighter planes are bombarding her, that the manuscript was written in half an hour in a coffee shop.
I really went into this with open eyes and was completely set for loving it, but no. The movie is just pure garbage. I'm sorry...
