Independence Day: Resurgence (Roland Emmerich)
Two decades after the first Independence Day invasion, Earth is faced with a new extra-Solar threat. But will mankind's new space defences be enough?
Starring: Liam Hemsworth, Jeff Goldblum, Jessie T. Usher, Bill Pullman, Maika Monroe, Sela Ward, William Fichtner, Judd Hirsch, Brent Spiner, Vivica A. Fox, Nicolas Wright, Joey King
My thoughts on this film: To tell you the truth, I do not remember much of the first one, only that I saw it on TV later on.
But, seriously, no wonder Will Smith never returned. That just shows how bad this movie really is.
How stupid do the script writers think the viewing audience is?
Great first ten minutes or so, then we are expected to leave all logic behind...
The film made no sense whatsoever.
The sphere can set up a planet to teach all other civilisations how to defend against the bad aliens, since their planet was wiped out by said aliens, but even the lower intelligence earthlings, using replicated, imitated weapons ripped from the bad aliens can shoot it down over the moon... great teachers they will be...
The Queen can survive a fusion bomb blast but her shield falls under minor weapon fires.
And having all her fighters surround her... I guess to offer her protection... but they just keep flying round and round like an amusement park ride when the two rogue fighters decide to attack her FOR A VERY LONG TIME!
A former president's daughter who no longer flies can just commandeer a fighter in order to fly alongside her father, who could not walk properly in the beginning of the film but can still fly a new age jet.
It was overall stupid, and I lost myself after the first ten minutes.
