Thanks to 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment we had the chance to see Independence Day: Resurgence on Blu-Ray
20 years after the July 4 battle against the aliens, mankind has been able to develop new technology using wreckage left by the invaders. Peace will be soon interrupted, however, as the alien invaders will return to seek vengeance and conquer Earth once and for all. (Check our full movie review here)
Hollywood has once again decided to exploit another “old” successful box office hit in order to create a new franchise. In this case, sadly, it feels pointless. Resurgence is largely a remake of the original, with the same plot, the same actors (except for Will Smith), the same silly jokes, and even a similar ending, all of which is enhanced by a ridiculous amount of CGI that is sometimes so over-the-top it looks fake.
Despite its many flaws, Resurgence does manage to deliver some entertaining moments, and evoke a lot of nostalgia. The Blu-Ray release includes deleted scenes, gags, a 4-part behind-the-scenes documentary, and retrospective commentaries.
Independence Day: Resurgence is out on Blu-Ray now.
