Goofs

When Jake is on the Moon, conversing with Patricia on Earth, there is no time lag in their responses; it is as if they are in the same room. However, the Moon is so far away that the wait time for a response is about 2.5 seconds.

Considering the many other advances made by reverse engineering the aliens' technology, it is however possible they are not using conventional radio for communication. See more »

Quotes

President Whitmore: [archive footage shown on TV, of President Whitmore's speech during the previous alien invasion] Today, you will once again be fighting for our freedom... Not from tyranny, oppression, or persecution... but from annihilation. And should we win the day, the Fourth of July will no longer be known as an American holiday, but as the day when the world declared in one voice: "We will not go quietly into the night!" We will not vanish without a fight! We're going to live on! We're going to survive! ...

Don't go to watch this at the cinema

It has two good CGI scenes, which you can watch at home some months from now. The rest is garbage. The movie was cut in pieces that do not make any sense. But the complete edition is probably not better. It is BORING, and eminently stupid. Characters explain to the audience the basic plot five minutes after exposition time. It is an indictment of what film executives think about people. It is terrible. This movie needs to bomb, it needs to crash, it must be the point where the madness of the vapid blockbuster ends. Watch again any episode of "Game of Thrones" instead. Again, I repeat this point: it is not even fun in a dumb way. It treats you as a very slow person. You can feel the people responsible for this laughing at you. Make it stop. Don't go to the cinema.
