Independence Day is the epitome of 1990's action sci-fi. Aliens target major cities across the United States and America leads the attack against them in order to save all of humanity. The star-studded cast brings to life fairly well-written characters and scenes that help push the movie along. The special effects and score certainly don't hurt either. But there are a large number of cheesy lines, awkward characters, and uninteresting moments to go around. It didn't help that there were subplots with almost every character that didn't really need to be there. But I can't help but adore this film. Cheesy and some-what needless, but still fun to watch. Good for most sci-fi/action movie fans.

Independence Day is a fun action pack film that has the 90's written all over it.

Run of the mill alien invasion (imagine that). Goldblum trademark "manic" is strained to breaking point. He has a very unlikely ex-wife in a very unlikely job. He has a comedy sidekick that is just plain tedious. He takes his Dad along to be horrified every couple of minutes by his son's actions. Explosions are loud and colourful. Will Smith is a badass that kicks a lot of alien butt with all the character depth of the sheet of A4 the plot must have come on.

Independence Day zips along at a fun pace with plenty of one-liners and some physical humor from the unlikely pairing of Smith and Goldblum. The effects are impressive, too, including the alien destruction sequences and a foray into an alien ship.

At one time, it was one of the biggest movies ever. Now it's just another alien invasion B-flick made on an A-level production. Piles on the cheese and the big effects.

I like this movie. Good for sci-fi and action fans. Terrific special effects. Earth invaded once again. Tall Will Smith and even taller Jeff Goldblum have a solution.

It very over-hyped when it came out. But, it's still an enjoyable movie.

Quite possibly one of the greatest alien invasion movie to have been made in the last 20 years.
