The experience being far better than the plot could ever be, Independance Day: Resurgence is exactly what you think it is.
Thirty years after the human race triumphed, winning back the Earth in a grand battle with an invading force of highly advanced alien species, the gang is back at it again! Featuring only a handful of the original cast, we follow the triumphs of – who else? The KIDS of the original cast of characters! This time, it’s personal. The aliens are back with bigger ships, similar weapons, less scary screen-time, and super predictable and tired romantic subplots.
Let’s face it. This movie is a ridiculous spectacle. You want to see U.F.O.’s get blown up and aliens get their ass kicked. That is exactly what you’ll get. I saw it on a $5 Tuesday ticket special, and the fun of going to the movies alone was worth it. Brent Spiner is literally the best part of this film, see it for him.
