After 'Independence Day'1 came out, we knew there was going
to be some kind of sequel and here it is. Part 2, pardon,
The Resurgence , is the next epic chapter which brings global spectacle on an unimaginable scale.
Was it intentional or a coincidence to have general release in the UK on the same day of the EU Referendum, 23 June?
Definitely a good marketing ploy.
The quick summary is:
With recovered alien technology, different countries (on Earth) have collaborated on an defence program to protect the planet, although they don't seem as prepared as they should when the aliens show up with advanced and unprecedented force.
As usual only a few brave men and women can bring the world back from the brink of extinction.
There are a lot of special effects and action scenes but not much "acting as such", let's say I can't see any Oscars on the horizon.
It is an entertaining piece for a rainy sunday afternoon/weekend, that's it.
