Back in 1996, the film Independence Day was an impressive piece of blockbuster spectacle. The amount of destruction on display done with outstanding visual effects for the time was a sight that demanded to be seen on the big screen. However, 20 years later, that destruction isn’t nearly as captivating in Independence Day: Resurgence, and it’s just one of the many problems the sequel has that keep it from measuring up to the original.
Perhaps the biggest problem is that all the destruction in Independence Day: Resurgence not only feels like a computer generated rehash of what we already saw done with more practical effects back in 1996, but it’s also been done countless other times in recent years in several of the Marvel movies and more recent DC Comics movies. Director Roland Emmerich has certainly taken notice, and he thinks the third acts are basically retreads of what he’s already done.

Later a rumor pegged Christopher Nolan being involved to help plan a possible trilogy. However, if that was the plan, the studio’s approach has changed with Fast and Furious franchise and Star Trek Beyond helmer Justin Lin being sought as the new Akira movie director.
