When relaxing from the classes I have taken I saw Independence Day: Resurgence. Independence Day: Resurgence is the sequel to the iconic 1996 Independence Day. The film had basically the same storyline as the first. The difference to me was the second one went more into detail about the alien invaders then the first film did.

Independence Day: Resurgence was directed by Rolland Emmerich, and takes place twenty years after the first film takes place. Independence Day: Resurgence was an excellent movie in my opinion given the action scenes in the movie. The movie shows the United States in a futuristic time period compared to the first movie. Independence Day: Resurgence’s main theme is celebrating the win over the alien invaders in the first Independence Day. Jeff Goldblum’s character David Levinson, was put in charge of protecting earth from another invasion. The main difference was that it was clear why the aliens wanted to invade earth for a second time. There was a different cast of characters then in the first movie. The movie had many action scenes and comedy scenes to keep the audience interested.

The movie had a detailed plot-line that kept me entertained from beginning to end. The action scenes were good and the storyline made sense. I will not spoil the ending for anyone. If any readers are interested in sci-fi movies this is certainly one to watch.
