StevenF Review of Independence Day


The science fiction movie Independence Day was released on July 3, 1996. Aliens invade Earth and the President (Bill Pullman) calls upon the services of Captain Steve Hiller (Will Smith). When he is assigned to area 51, Hiller meets a theoreticist (Jeff Goldblum) and a scientist (Brent Spiner) who believes he can communicate with the aliens.

I admit I enjoy a good sci-fi movie and this was very well done. There was plenty of action and some decent acting. The choice of Will Smith, however, as the main character was not exactly the best, but he was considered hot at the time of the film. Brent Spiner was an interesting choice for a nutty scientist since he had just come from StarTrek:The Next Generation television series. I’m a fan of Jeff Goldblum and thought he was very good. Randy Quaid as an eccentric cropduster was also memorable.

The story line flowed very well and the directing was excellent. The CGI was also outstanding. I give this 4.5 stars out of 5.
