As the Fourth of July nears, satellite engineer David Levinson investigates a 3,000-mile-wide mother ship that's approaching Earth. Fortunately, 20 years earlier, nations across the world started to use recovered extraterrestrial technology to develop an immense defense program. When the alien invaders attack with unprecedented force, the U.S. president, teams of scientists and brave fighter pilots spring into action to save the planet from a seemingly invincible enemy.
What in the hell was this? Was I watching someone play a video game? Because that is what it really seemed like. The movie was like the beginning of a video, then by the middle of it, you get to play the game. This was one of the worst movies that I have seen. The first one was so good. Why in the world would they even think about making a sequel to it? Oh yeah, they wanted more money, and they were not think about making a good movie, just a large profit. The sad part is that it did not make half of its money back. It was a flop.
Some of the cast came back to play their role, but Will Smith said not. That is the main reason that the movie did so bad. If Smith would have been in the movie, then it would have made a lot more money. I'm sure of it. The movie would not have been any better. The cast was the only good part about the movie. The story was almost the same as the first. There was not any new material to add to the story. We have seen this all once before, but they thought that we needed to see it again all of these years later.
The only good that can be said about the movie is that the special effects were really good. The aliens looked cheesy, but they were still good, and they looked the same. The explosions cause by the alien ships looked great. That is the only good that can be said about this movie, the destruction of the Earth. That is sad.
There was no point at all for this movie. It added nothing to the storyline or the cause. It was not even that entertaining. It is not worth watching. This is a movie to stay away from. Watch some paint dry instead. I watched it, so you don't have to.
