Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: The results are predictably predictable if rarely entertainingly risible, with swaths of exposition and dialogue that sounds like ads ("one people, one world").
Rotten: Disposable and shockingly inept.
Rotten: The only thing resurgent in this humorless alien mess is Hollywood's passion to charge us more and deliver less.
Rotten: You can forgive Independence Day: Resurgence for being ridiculous -- its predecessor was too. But you can't forgive it for being boring.
Great movie!!!! Must watch.
I enjoyed this movie from start to finish. It exceeded my expectation.😄 I can't wait for the next one.
A Worthy Sequel
This is a fun movie with plenty of time locks to move the story forward. The inclusion of a sixth sense adds more depth to the character complexity.
I watched this movie as a diversion from all the mess surrounding Brexit. I knew what I was buying, Independence Day isn't exactly brain food, but I was game. If it's about aliens blowing up the planet, I'm in. But there was no escaping the truly leaden, cringe-worthy dialogue. The plot meandered from one thread to another, at one point introducing a busload of schoolchildren for absolutely no reason, with a tearful subplot about a young teenager crying about her boyfriend. Again, it went nowhere. This is lazy movie-making at its worst. If you want to put a three hundred foot ticked off alien to wreak havoc in the Nevada desert, by all means do it. But you gotta make a decent effort at allowing us to play along, and not constantly interrupting the game with nonsesical stuff that can't pass even the most forgiving smell test.
