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?
The movie had been given a 165 million dollar budget, 90 million more than its predecessor, Independence Day (1996), which had a 75 million dollar budget, and had a worldwide box-office take of 817.4 million dollars, making it the highest grossing movie of 1996. See more »
It seems highly improbable that if someone is in a coma for 20 years, their glasses would be kept right by their hospital bed the entire time, without the glasses ever being damaged. Dr. Okun doesn't even polish them before putting them on. 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...
