Independance Day: Resurgence Srt Sub Subtitle Download

If this sequel had appeared in 1997 or 98, it would have been averagely interesting. But in the past twenty years hence, the audience has had the delight to savor so many other much more superior movies of its genre (which were ironically spawned by the first Independence Day’s success) – something which the direction of this movie did not bother to account for, hence we are in for a very badly dated why-bother sci-fi flick. The original was passably good for its time, and this sequel is but almost a poor spoof of itself.

Everything from the plot to the mundane cheesy dialogue, un-laughable jokes, and empty characters, and OK-ish CGI … all cookie-cutter mishmash from other passé movies. Situations make no sense, neither do the illogical reaction of the characters, including our supposedly ‘super-intelligent’ big mother-monster chasing after a school bus for no real reason apart from the fact its there, like a playful kitten after a spot of light on the floor. And of course the ‘saviour’ alienship with all its bombastic intellect and scientific pizazz comes right up face-on to be blown to smithereens without doing the obvious thing of announcing the altruistic reason for its presence … when apparently it does speak English at that too! Anyway, so so so many nonsensical senseless situations here, don’t even bother to care two hoots after a while.

None of the characters nor actors have any lasting impression nor charisma … and the two ‘romantic’ couples …. totally plastic with inert chemistry. I can almost hear Jeff Goldblum whispering to Judd Hirsch, “Geez, this movie is just so bad we need to wind-up our exaggerated gestures and jaw-drops to save it!”

The original TV Star Trek would be more interesting.
Alongside Battleship and Godzilla, this movie is among the worst SF movies of all times. Some of the actors can actually act, but not even they can save anything because of the unbelievably bad script. You have to see it, to believe it, true, but it is not worth your time.

First, it is very hard for the audience to emotionally relate to any character or event. It is so blatantly clear that actors speak for the audience to “get it” that their dialogue has no meaning other than to document facts we have not seen. And even so, the interesting questions you might have will remain unanswered. The CGI is OK, but its use completely overshadows any meaningful emotion the viewer might have in relation to the events on the screen. It’s simply too much and the attachment is impossible.

Secondly, the script is bad. I mean really bad. I know I said this before, but there really are no words to describe it. You know it when complete sections of dialogue are lifted from Independence Day (1996) and paced in this one. As they don’t fit the characters anymore – or they completely mess up any evolution that might have taken place meanwhile – the “magic” is ruined.

Simply… stay home, choose another movie, watch Independence Day (1996) again… Anything but this!

P.S. Watching it I was constantly reminded of low budget movies from the 50’s and 60’s. Why? Because every cliché imaginable about aliens or relationships is featured in this film.

Independance Day: Resurgence Srt Sub Download

I recently re-watched the first film and was surprised at how robust its shelf life is. Again, it is undeniably cheesy and jingoistic, but done suitably well, I can have a ball with any material. In “Independence Day: Resurgence”, set and finally released 20 years after the events of the first film, the aliens get medieval on us with an even bigger mothership.

There’s a lot of heroics here by many a character who do their equal part to stop this new alien menace, having already made a stuffed calzone of the Earth’s crust comprising from London all the way to Singapore. There’s also a refreshingly silly undertone which sets it apart from the grim and serious blockbusters of today, and with added Jeff Goldblum and Judd Hirsch who return as the Levinsons, and “Star Trek” alumnus Brent Spiner as the eccentric Dr. Okun, Emmerich and his co-writers, including returning scribe Dean Devlin, certainly did not skimp out on the comic silliness.

Unfortunately, that is where the similarities end. The sins of sequelitis has been bestowed upon this sequel to his 1996 smash hit, and Emmerich is to blame, either for his laziness to phone it in out of frustration to fulfill the fans; or bucking in to studio demand to condense the film into a mere 2 hours. Sure, lots of things happen in the film, including stuff and cities going kablooey in high style, and high-tech aerial dogfights to give “Star Wars” a run for its money. Even Liam Hemsworth as the new hero Jake Morrison did not annoy me as much as I expected, though Hemsworth is still a far cry from Will Smith’s “Elvis has left the building!” persona.

However, as slick as the modern CGI is, giving a sleeker look to the tech shown in the original film, it never quite gels together as a cohesive film – no momentum, no suspense, no catharsis when it does end. Bill Pullman’s returning ex-President Thomas Whitmore is utterly wasted, as per his daughter Patricia (Maika Monroe, not doing her rep from “It Follows” any favours). It is not their fault; I feel that there is a lot of footage Emmerich was forced to excise by the Fox bigwigs to get more butts into cinema seats. Perhaps an extra half- hour of more cataclysmic destruction and character motives, but I may be asking for a bit too much at this point.

Things are very rushed indeed, with no payoff even when there’s lots of characters doing their fair share to save the day. Goldblum and Hirsch, however, are still naturals, and they steal every scene they’re in, and lift the movie up from near tediousness. Nevertheless, the special effects are fantastic, and are most certainly worth the price of admission alone.

It’s kind of sad. This new one promotes global equality, with a female U.S. President (Sela Ward) celebrating world peace, and with everyone from across the globe giving it their all to kick E.T.’s ass. The action is fine and dandy without any of those annoying shaky-cam and quick-cut edits. And yet, the film suffers from awkward pacing, rushed dynamics, and especially a lack of cities exploding into fireballs. It even has sequel-teasing in the laziest manner possible in its final moments.

To quote Marvin the Martian, “Where’s the kaboom? There’s supposed to be an Earth-Shattering Kaboom!”
Twenty years ago, the summer blockbuster movie season was changed forever. Independence Day’s tale of human perseverance in the face of an overwhelming alien invasion became one of the highest grossing films of the 1990s thanks to a combination of memorable characters and iconic special effect sequences. It was also a film that felt quite standalone with a definite beginning, middle and end to it. Yet Rolland Emmerich and Dean Devlin (who scripted it as well as respectively directing and producing it) came back for more. Moving forward two decades in time, the film promised to build on the first by showing a rebuilt world taking on the threat of renewed invasion. Needless to say, expectations were high. Did it live up to them?

The short answer: not at all.

Independence Day: Resurgence often feels like it’s simply re- treading over old ground, only on a much bigger scale. Many of the iconic moments of the first film are done here from shots of the lunar surface, aerial battles, infiltrating an alien space ship, the destruction of landmarks and much more. Even the film’s big threat is really just a much larger version of the ships from the first film (this time an even more improbable 3,000 miles in diameter). Or take the ending when combines the ending of the original film with the duo’s first project post ID4. Though the film finds the occasions where it subverts those moments (such as with the original film’s most iconic scene), Emmerich and Devlin don’t seem to have brought much new to the table here.

What they bring instead is the attitude that “bigger is better”. From the rebuilt cities we glimpse in the opening moments to the over-sized alien ship, all the film can seem to do is take what came before and give it to us again on a larger scale. Yet despite the two decades that have passed and all the apparent advances in special effects, those featured here are less impressive and less convincing than their 1996 counterparts. Whereas the first film relied on the physical as well as CGI, this film seems to make almost extensive use of CGI throughout including with the aliens themselves. Gone is the sense of reality and physicality that made the first film’s effects so effective, replaced by a kind of CGI blandness that could make this film fit in with any other number of would-be disaster epics that came in the wake of the original film. It’s as if Emmerich and Devlin forgot what made their earlier work so memorable.

That extends to much of the rest of the film as well. Whereas the original film was populated by memorable characters with witty dialogue, this film lacks that completely. We’re given a handful of characters from the original film twenty years on, primarily in the form of Jeff Goldblum’s David Levinson as well as Bill Pullman’s former President Whitmore and Brent Spiner as Doctor Okun, plus cameos from others who really don’t add much of anything to the film (most especially Vivica A. Fox) though none of them feel like their anything but caricatures of their original selves. The new cast of characters are scarcely memorable from the recast roles of Dylan Hill and Patricia Whitmore (played by Jessie Usher and Maika Monroe) to Liam Hemsworth’s pilot Jake to Sela Ward’s President Lanford and William Fichtner’s General Adams, all of whom are written so bland that no actor in the world could have found a way to make them more memorable. Like Emmerich’s White House Down three years ago, he managed to put an impressive cast into an otherwise unmemorable film.

Indeed, the word “unmemorable” describes the end result of Independence Day: Resurgence. Despite its pedigree, the return of both the original filmmakers and some members of its original cast, not to mention twenty years of advances in special effects technology the end result is a film that isn’t half as good or half as memorable as the original. Instead it’s a bland piece of work, filled with what should be eye-catching special effects that instead remind of us of just how much better the original film was.

All of which leads me to ask a question. Rolland, Dean: you had twenty years to prepare. Was this really the best you could come up with?
