|One of the biggest box office hits of all time delivers the ultimate encounter when mysterious and powerful aliens launch an all-out invasion against the human race. The spectacle begins when massive spaceships appear in Earth's skies. But wonder turns to terror as the ships blast destructive beams of fire down on cities all over the planet. Now the world's only hope lies with a determined band of survivors, uniting for one last strike against the invaders - before it's the end of all mankind.|
"The alien attack, taking place in several cities at once, is breathtaking... Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle
"A rousing state-of-the-art cartoon capped by an aerial-combat climax... Mike Clark, USA Today
Editor's NoteWith a $71 million budget and mind-blowing special effects, INDEPENDENCE DAY is a grand, high-tech throwback to such films of the 1950s as THE DAY THE EARTH STOOD STILL and WAR OF THE WORLDS. Here, aliens, in numerous gargantuan spaceships, arrive without warning and hover over the world's most important cities, creating global panic. The nasty visitors use death rays to blow New York, Washington D.C, and Los Angeles to smithereens. A handful of plucky Americans, including the Clinton-esque President (Bill Pullman), a gung-ho fighter pilot (Will Smith) and a computer geek named David (Jeff Goldblum), attempt to devise a strategy against the invaders.On July 4th, their risky plan is put into effect, as dozens of fighter pilots (including the President) wage an assault on the spaceships. However, their success (and the fate of the world) depends on David, who is attempting to disarm the aliens's mothership.

Customer Reviews of Independence Day(Blu-ray)
This movie took some flak from critics, but I think a lot of it is undeserved. It has pretty much everything you could ask for: action, romance, drama, comedy, and a good cast of characters. Of all the modern disaster movies, I still think this is one of the best.
worth watching it again and again5/3/2012
This movie was the first sci/fi- alien movie of my life, which I watched it a long time ago. I thoroughly enjoyed watching this again in blu ray. The cast is great, the visual effects are just awesome, and story is really good. Overall, this is one of the best sci/fi movies in hollywood.
Best on bluray4/30/2012
Great movie one of the best alien movies ever. This classic alien film has to be a mile stone for scifi. It has a good plot and a good cast. It has some great air battles. The aliens are great and have some great scenes. It also has some of the best will smith moments in all of his career. I would recommend this film to anyone.
