Writer/Director/Producer Roland Emmerich’s Independence Day: Resurgence is the epitome of a summer popcorn thriller.
Together with Co-Writers Nicolas Wright, James A. Woods and Dean Devlin, Emmerich has crafted non-stop beginning to end action with several story lines that are easy to follow and all interesting. And, while some might criticize the convenient coincidences that draw some of the characters together, they just don’t appreciate the fun of a summer popcorn adventure.
A lot of the fun is seeing characters from the original Independence Day of 1996 back again, including Bill Pullman, Jeff Goldman, Judd Hirsch, Brent Spiner, Viveca A. Fox, Robert Loggia and James Storey.
Whether you see it in 2D or 3D, Independence Day: Resurgence is a fun ride for everyone in the family. I give it a 4.5 out of 5.
