As rotten tomatoes put it “It’s undeniably visually impressive, but like its predecessor, Independence Day: Resurgencelacks enough emotional heft to support its end-of-the-world narrative stakes.” My brother Kai saw the movie this weekend and he more or less agrees. He says it is almost the same movie as its predecessor, the story is even worse.

The story is simple: We always knew they were coming back. After INDEPENDENCE DAY redefined the event movie genre, the next epic chapter delivers global catastrophe on an unimaginable scale. Using recovered alien technology, the nations of Earth have collaborated on an immense defense program to protect the planet. But nothing can prepare us for the aliens’ advanced and unprecedented force. Only the ingenuity of a few brave men and women can bring our world back from the brink of extinction. (C) Fox

Well, I haven’t seen it, yet, but I will also watch it at the movie theater, since it’s just one of these blockbuster classics you HAVE to see. But now I already managed my expectations. :-)

What are your thoughts? Have you seen it, yet?
