The sequel to 1996's Independence Day was a lot of dumb fun!     To find out more about the original movie click here for the Wikipedia page.   My pros and cons with the film:


  • Fun movie, I laughed and enjoyed the movie.
  • Jeff Goldblum, Judd Hirsch, Maika Monroe (from 'It Follows'), Travis Tope (from Boardwalk Empire season 5) were the standouts in the film.
  • Amazing special effects, especially the look of the aliens.   I feel an improvement from the first film.   Also the combination of the new human/alien technology was very sleek.
  • Brent Spiner stole the movie for me.   Very entertaining and funny whenever he showed up on screen.
  • Tighter and better pace than the first film.


  • Bill Pullman death wish, he wanted to be die/be killed/sacrificed in almost every scene he was in.
  • Replaceable main characters.   Hiller's son, Liam Hemsworth, Angelababy, had no appeal or charisma and could've been played by anyone.
  • Revenge Yell!!!   Every time one of the main/side character's friend(s)/family was hurt or killed, they got their vengeance by yelling and shooting aplenty...and it worked!
  • The 'Floyd' character was brutal.    To go from this pencil necked geek to 'warrior' by the time the film is done wasn't a pleasant thing to sit through.
  • Characters emotional roller second their grieving a loved one's death the next their smiling and celebrating....yay!   We beat the aliens but my best friend is dead!
  • This movie is filled with ridiculousness that will make you groan and laugh.

But this is the exact reason why I enjoyed this movie.   My final score is a 7/10.   Popcorn-dumb movie to the fullest.

Shout out to my boys Jason G. and Gunnie for helping me out with this review.
