Goofs

The aliens state that they want to extract Earth's molten core. Yet when they start drilling, they start in the middle of the ocean. Shouldn't they have started at the Dead Sea (the lowest point on earth)? It's 423m below sea level, and therefor much closer to Earth's core then any part of the ocean. See more »

I cannot find ONE redeeming quality for this movie
28 June 2016 | by Lothar_grSee all my reviews

It is true that when you are young, you see movies like the original "ID4" from a different perspective, most often you judge them better than what they really are, and this undeniably is a fact of life. It holds true for most people. Yet, the original movie, even when judged by my 41 years old brain now, without considering the nostalgia factor, and even in all its cheesiness ... still manages to be far far superior from this absolute garbage!

This sequel really is a let down of epic proportions, and I felt like I wasted my money. It manages to be what the first movie totally wasn't ...and that can be summed up in one word: BORING. The bad guys ( the aliens ) are laughably stupid - even more than the first time ... the main characters could all be replaced by cardboard cutouts of people and it wouldn't make any difference. Even the CGI is bad... Avoid it at all costs.
