Back in 1996 the classic of Independence Day was released and we got to see humans kick some alien ass back to where they came from. And we thought that was the end of it. But little did we know – 20 years later. They wanted revenge.
It’s now 2016 and earth looks very different. Technology is more superior thanks to the tech the aliens left so we could evolve our tech. We get to see some familiar faces in the second film. The children are all grown up. Stripper became doctor. Daughter of 1996 President now works in White House for different President. Son to the pilot who kicked some alien ass is now a pilot too. We see David working for UN and so much more. Earth is now in peace and there’s no more war between countries. All countries stand as one. And thinking about it, doesn’t that sound like an amazing thing?
During the July 4th celebrations Earth is getting a signal. A larger ship is coming in. Larger than the Atlantic ocean. When they land alot of countries where destroyed and many lives lost. But as we all know, humans won’t take this and will fight back. Without result. The aliens have come back with stronger power and this time – with a Queen.
On the moon the military shoots down a ship that they think is unfriendly. They take it back to Earth to Area 51 to discover this orb or what it is, is a friendly one and a ally.
With massive ships, funny puns, love, betrayal and good old “You’re not welcome here” attitude Independence day 2 is a well done film and puts a lot of nostalgia back from the childhood when the first film was released. Script could have been a little better but all around, the film was incredible. And I wonder, will we be seeing a third one in the future?
You see actors like Liam Hemsworth, Jeff Goldblum, Jessie T Usher, Bill Pullman, Maika Monroe, William Fichtner, Judd Hirch, Brent Spiner and many more.
