Earth. Take a good look. It might be your last.
On July 2, a giant alien mothership enters orbit around Earth and deploys several dozen saucer-shaped "destroyer" spacecraft that quickly lay waste to major cities around the planet. On July 3, the United States conducts a coordinated counterattack that fails. On July 4 the a plan is devised to gain access to the interior of the alien mothership in space in order to plant a nuclear missile.
From the director who once stated that he is "a filmmaker, not a scientist" as his defense to the plethora of historical & scientific inaccuracies present in his movies, Independence Day remains Roland Emmerich's most enjoyable & unabashedly entertaining work to date and is the picture that introduced me to this weirdo. And although it offers the same ridiculousness as his other features, it still succeeds as a solid popcorn flick that was once at the forefront of large-scale disaster films.
The story concerns an alien invasion against which the entire mankind unite together to fight for its freedom. It begins on July 2 when an alien mothership enters the Earth's orbit & deploys several spaceships which take over the major cities of…
Sci-fi Action combined with gangbuster special effects made this the kind of film that'll pop your corn like it's going out of style!
An all-star cast that adds depth and a likability factor to their respective characters! Spectacularly cheesy with a side order of funky aliens on a mission to invade earth makes this an irresistible film!
If this film had been made back when I was a kid I would have gone totally apeshit over this!
"Kick the tires and light the fires, big daddy!"
I just watched Independence Day three times in one sitting. Almost literally, I only really stood up to use the restroom. My father-in-law just left it on all day, and I just kept on watching it. I couldn't help but wonder what healthy, ambitious people were doing today. Probably healthy, ambitious activities. Suckers.
I had flashbacks to when I was a little turd kid and watched Empire Strikes Back on repeat, only that is one of the greatest films ever made and this is Roland Emmerich.
Not afraid to admit it though, it was a pretty great day.
Good morning. In less than an hour, aircraft from here will join others from around the world. And you will be launching the largest aerial battle in the history of mankind. "Mankind." That word should have new meaning for all of us today. We can't be consumed by our petty differences anymore. We will be united in our common interests. Perhaps it's fate that today is the Fourth of July, and you will once again be fighting for our freedom... Not from tyranny, oppression, or persecution... but from annihilation. We are fighting for our right to live. To exist. And should we win the day, the Fourth of July will no longer be known as an American holiday, but as…
Happy 4th of July, Americans!
Independence Day is a pretty good blockbuster action movie. The plot was really interesting in the first hour or so, but then it turned into your standard action flick, with huge explosions and the plot disappeared. Still, it's a pretty fun action flick to pass the time.
Will Smith's kid plays with a King Ghidorah toy for about three seconds total screen time.
I wholeheartedly embrace a ridiculous cartoon of a movie like Pacific Rim, but that's because it avoids ever being, you know, offensive. Independence Day is amazingly tonedeaf, hamfisting every subject it even slightly broaches. Scientists and optimists are all filthy hippies and helpless cretins (except for Jeff Goldblum, who is so handsome and charismatic that I suppose he alone is immune to the idiot nerd disease), while the President and our American heroes stand tall.
The weird thing about it, really, is how cool and imaginative some of the alien design is. Small humanoid forms with large heads that rely on organic exo-suits to…
Technically I haven't watched this movie all the way through. I fall asleep every time.
"Let's kick the tires and light the fires, big daddy!"
I could spend countless hours going through this film's flaws, faults of logic and downright idiocies, and believe me there are more than a few, yet somehow, someway I will never, ever tire of Independence Day. Maybe it's the nostalgia, maybe it's the sometimes hilarious and sometimes hilariously bad wisecracks, or maybe it's just that Bill Pullman is the most badass President of all time, but ID4 will always be entertaining as fuck, and in my opinion, the best turn-your-brain-off blockbuster of all time.
Nem tudom pontozni.
Viszont ezt a filmet mindig is bírni fogom, függetlenül attól, hogy mennyi hülyeséggel van tele.
Egyszerűen egy jó kis nagyszabású nyári popcorn múví, ahol tényleg érződik, hogy tétje van a dolgoknak...
Independence Day is a fun action pack film that has the 90's written all over it.
UNINTENTIONAL HARRY CONNICK JR. TWO-FER...
Weird coincidence aside... this movie is the tits.
In this ripoff of War of the Worlds, Jeff Goldblum discovers that the Alien computers are somehow conveniently compatible with human viruses and Will Smith does things as well.
Gets an extra point for having Harry Connick Jnr die almost immediately whilst in pathetic retreat.
The Classic American film...
