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?
Titles such as "Independence Day Rises", "Independence Day Returns", "Independence Day: Requiem", and "Independence Day: Retaliation" were all movie names considered to have title suffixes (all words beginning with the letter "R") which had been overused until the title of Independence Day: Resurgence was finalized and settled upon.

The Earth is larger than the alien vessel and would thus exert a greater gravitational force. The tidal surges created by the ship entering into the planet's gravitational field would be so great that would have torn the ship into pieces.
The ship could not land on the planet's surface as it would not make it intact into the Earth's upper atmosphere. 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...
