If you need to see this more than once a year (free on TV every year on ... Independence Day ... 01 July or around that date) ... cause Americans really like boasting.
is truly amusing. Will Smith did a great job. Looks like he had a lot of fun making this film.

The movie itself had great CGI and as a popcorn movie, I think it's just amazing. I'm not sure why it had so many negative reviews or got nominated for Razzies (never won though). I saw this in the theaters in 3D when it was out, and re-watched it on Netflix today (they are taking it off Netflix tomorrow so I put the movie on the shelf here just in case). I'd have to say this movie holds my attention and is a fun-watch. The third act was just roller-coaster amazing, while the previous acts were okay. The only fault I would say it is didn't have a convincing sense of urgency the first film, and suspense of the intentions of the aliens before the first attack. It was a bit too "popcorn" for the caliber of movie established by the first one, and perhaps that is what let allot of people down after waiting for a 20 year sequel.

This is the worst sci-fi. movie I have ever had the experience of watching. Everyone connected to this blockbuster misfire should be summarily executed. It is the worst written, worst directed, worst acted, worst graphics, worst everything movie ever made. I give it no stars and that is being generous.

This may be the worst Big-Budget movie I've ever seen.
It's like it was written by a child.
Horrible, cornball acting with a terrible script, and more plot-holes than you got energy to count.
Bad from start to finish.
Absolutely painful to watch!

Goofy? Yes. Silly? Yes. Weird? Yes. At the same time, the film has a nice sense of fun that's pretty appealing. Even if the 'aliens invade the planet so we're all doomed' premise is totally stale by now, the movie is still worth watching.

First one was better. Anyway, Aliens comeback only to get outwitted by a bunch of millennials in jet fighters. Don't worry Jeff Goldblum, Jud Hirsch, Bill Pullman, and Brett Spiner come out of mothballs to help come up with more solutions to kick the aliens asses.

MST3K come and get this one its so bad its good, and for a big plus you get to see all the things that the aliens missed the first time go bye-bye. A guilty pleasure film for sure.

This just came in from Hubble. There's some kind of force pulling in Saturn's rings.
-Holy Christ. What about our defense base there?
It's gone. It's not just the base, it's like the whole moon just vanished.

Good morning, Brakish. How are we today? I brought you a new one. Dactylorhiza maculata, or the spotted orchid. And when it fully blooms, the lavender... is going to take your breath away.
===
You know the last thing I said to my parents was I hated them. The only reason I'm still alive is they dropped me off at that stupid camp.
-Well, I'm glad they did. Because you're the only family I got.

20 years ago, when we destroyed the mother ship, we detected a burst in an X-band frequency directed towards deep space.
-Oh. The distress call.
Looks like someone picked up the phone and answered.

To all aircraft within the sound of my voice, we expect the devastation to the east coast to be beyond imagination. The rally point for all remaining aircraft is Area 51.

What are you idiots doing?
-The world's going to an end. Even worse, we lost the gold.
===
I think they're after our molten core. Which means no magnetic fields. Our atmosphere evaporate basically
the end of life on this planet.
-Oh, so you are saying we're already finished.
Not necessarily. Back in '96, the drilling in Africa stops when we blew up their mother ship. There must be a queen up there that we didn't know about. Assuming this hive theory holds true.
===
No one has ever killed a harvester queen.
-That's encouraging.
But as a hive, her fighters will fall and her ship will leave your planet, recalled by other harvester queens.

We always knew they were coming back. But look how far we've come. In the last 20 years, this planet has been unified in a way that's unprecedented in human history. That's sacred. That's worth fighting for. We convinced an entire generation that this is a battle we could win. And they believed us. We can't let them down. It wasn't luck last time. It was our resolve. We all have to fight till our last breath. And that is going to
lead us to victory.
===
Make no mistake, this is humanity's last stand. What we do in the next 12 minutes will either define the human race or finish it. To those of you listening: No matter your nationality, color, or creed, ... we are all one people. Whatever happens, succeed or fail, we will face it together, standing as one.

A harvester ship conquered our planet and extracted it's molten core. They used them to refuel their ships and grow their technology. They've done this to countless civilizations.

We're not even married yet, and you're already trying to shoot me?
-Maybe we should try that.
===
I got the controls back. And our weapons are working. Yeah, but our engines are fried.
-Alright. Well, it's got to be a controlled dive then.

What are you doing? You're not going to follow her! Stay behind the yellow line, please Dad.
-There's no yellow line.
Imagine one.

You saved the world once before, Dad.
-I'm not saving the world, Patty. I'm saving you.

My dad says your son never went to space and it's just a conspiracy.
-Oh yeah? You father's a butt.
