"Blu-Ray Disc, Beyond High Definition."
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.

"Like cotton candy its a high caloric treat thats always fun for the taste buds.  Brandon Judell, Critics, Inc.
"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 Note
With 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.

Plot Summary
INDEPENDENCE DAY is a pyrotechnic, futuristic, disaster, action mondo-adventure about aliens attacking Earth and humans giving them the big boot. When mountain-sized flying saucers open fire on the world's cities, a ragtag band of colorful characters sets out to bring the alien critters to their pseudopodic knees. Borrowing liberally from science fiction classics like WAR OF THE WORLDS and THE DAY THE EARTH STOOD STILL and a host of disaster movies from TOWERING INFERNO to METEOR, ID4 maintains a mindless mission to entertain with dazzling special effects and unabashed feel-good charm.

"...Witty, of-the-moment fun." -- Rating: B 08/09/1996 p.44

"...A spectacularly scaled mix of '50s-style alien invader science fiction, '70s disaster epics and all-season gung-ho military actioners..." 07/01/1996 9 of 10
In true summer-movie style, the plot is pretty preposterous - do you really think two earthlings could pilot an alien aircraft into space and upload a computer virus into the mother ship in 30 seconds? - but that doesn't matter. Independence Day succeeds as mainstream entertainment; a grand spectacle in the tradition of The Poseidon Adventure and The Towering Inferno, not to mention more recent entries like Armageddon...In fact, it was '70s disaster flicks like Poseidon and Inferno, not sci-fi epics like Star Wars and Close Encounters of the Third Kind, that inspired director Roland Emmerich and producer Dean Devlin (the team behind Stargate and Godzilla) when it came to making ID4. - Betsy Bozdech

ReelViews 6 of 10
From the beginning, there have been reasons to doubt Independence Day's creative foundation. After all, it comes from Roland Emmerich and Dean Devlin, the team responsible for Stargate, one of the most disappointing and derivative science fiction films of the decade. Theirs is not a pedigree to inspire confidence, and, as it turns out, Independence Day is no better than Stargate...Independence Day isn't about logic and intelligence. It's about space battles, mass destruction, and a laughably "rousing" speech by the President. This is a spectacle, pure and simple. Unfortunately, because the film makers mistakenly tried to inject a load of weak dramatic elements, Independence Day turns out to be overlong, overblown, and overdone. For alien invasions this summer, give me The Arrival instead. - James Berardinelli
