Independence Day Resurgence re-thought

In hindsight, I might have been too generous to Independence Day Resurgence. I might never want to see that movie again. Maybe I was in a good mood when I saw it. I am not saying this as a huge fan of the original. I am not a huge fan of the original.

It is not terrible but for a movie that is supposed to be spectacular, the effects aren’t spectacular or memorable. I heard the budget was 200 million, which sounds impressive. However the movie is decent at best and 200 million is a lot to spend to get  decent.

If you haven’t seen it, don’t rush. Richard Roeper called this movie “a disaster by committee.” His review also has this phrase “that was unnecessary”. Check out his review here http://chicago.suntimes.com/entertainment/independence-day-resurgence-quality-descends-in-sci-fi-sequel/.
