Director Roland Emmerich is known for creating out of the world movies. The movies he makes are mostly Extraterrestrial and are heavily equipped with computer graphics imagery (CGI). Roland has been successful previously in doing so but has failed to bring back the resurgence of the former movie of the series. Will Smith played it safe by not going for the second movie and it will prove to be a smart decision. What replaces Will is Jesse Usher who plays the son of Will.
Let us have a look at the complete review.
Twenty Years after the attack, the ET decided to come back to capture a giant white sphere which is a source of immense power and out of the world technology which will make the person more powerful whoever gets his hands on it.
Meanwhile, somewhere in Africa, the ESD aka Earth Space Defence director David Levinson is looking for some clues and he gets a news that the ESD moon station has destroyed a spherical ship which was mistaken for an alien attacking ship.The spherical ship was here to help the humans by preparing them to fight against aliens and the spherical ship is what the aliens are after but we humans didn't get it right and instead attack it.
The mothership is looking for the spherical ship and in order to sustain their power needs, it decides to dig a hole to the center of the earth's crust and they have to be stopped before they reach the center. Not to mention the mothership is around few hundreds of kilometers in size which is just so dumb.
Immediately David along with Dr. Catherine and warlord Dikembe Umbuntu are taken to the crash site on the moon and that is where they find the white sphere and bring it back to the earth. On reaching earth, something shocking happens.
The series of events take place one after the other and yet fail to surprise or astonish you. The aliens are after the giant sphere and want it. The ESD forces come into the scene and the scenes are worth applause.
Liam Hemsworth and Jesse Usher are among the new faces and fail to make their presence felt. William Fincher does justice to his role. Jesse Usher tries his best to fill in Will Smith's shoes but doesn't fit in. Herald Kloser and Thomas Wanker make the music sound familiar like all other sci-fi thrillers without any new changes. For viewers who have watched the previous edition of the series and are having high expectations with this one please lower them. For those who haven't watched the first part namely Independence Day, it will be a nice experience.
