Independence Day : Resurgence review

919KOu6sEyL. SL1500 768x1024 Independence Day : Resurgence

This movie had a lot of issues, most of them stemming from the fact that 99% of the film was CGI, very very noticable CGI.  In scenes where you would think they could afford to just go on location and shoot, they choose CGI (the salt flats were CGI?).  All the jets, all the aliens, most of all the explosions…CGI. Couple that glaring situation with the plot that made a whole lot of zero sense at all.  A space ship comes from the dark, and the president only cares about a speech she’s going to give?

There was also a severe issue of pacing, lack of gravitas, and confusing narratives. There was only a single character that didn’t feel like they fell out of a horrible syfy box of horrible science fiction tropes, and that man’s name was Brent Spiner, who I know better as Data from Star Trek : The Next Generation.

I enjoyed the explosions, but this is a one time viewing movie, it hurts my brain too much to want to watch it again.
