Rotten Tomatoes® Score

Critics Consensus: It's undeniably visually impressive, but like its predecessor, Independence Day: Resurgence lacks enough emotional heft to support its end-of-the-world narrative stakes.

Uninspired sequel is dull despite big sci-fi battles.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Independence Day: Resurgence is the sequel to 1996's blockbuster alien-invasion thriller, Independence Day. Although a few actors reprise their roles (Jeff Goldbum, Bill Pullman, Judd Hirsch, Vivica A. Fox, Brent Spiner), the movie mostly focuses on a younger generation of Americans who've grown up after the original movie's catastrophic events. When the aliens come back, angrier and in bigger ships than ever, there's another round of destructive, cataclysmic violence: Whole cities are destroyed, ships are blown up, and characters are killed in dire, war-like situations. Notable characters die, some in particularly upsetting ways: One plunges to her death from a helicopter, and another dies as a sacrifice for the greater cause. There's also some strong language ("s--t," "bitch," "a--hole," etc.), a little drinking, and a few kisses.
