Using technology obtained from aliens 20 years ago, the nations of the Earth, who fear the return of the invaders, have collaborated on the development of a gigantic defense program to protect the planet. But it is not certain that this program will serve to meet the advanced and unprecedented resources of the attackers. Perhaps only the inventiveness of a brave few can avoid the destruction of the world, which is again on the brink of extinction.
‘Independence Day: Counterattack’ is the sequel to the science fiction movie of the ‘ 90s, ‘ Independence Day ‘ . Exactly twenty years later, German writer – director Roland Emmerich , presents the alien invasion again, this time bigger than the previous one , but with a planet advanced science and technology as to alien attacks Earth is concerned. For this new attack earthlings have again with Thomas Whitmore ( Bill Pullman ), a former US president who has not completely overcome the first invasion, David Levinson ( Jeff Goldblum ) in charge of Area 51, his father Julius Levinson ( Judd Hirsch ) who gives lectures about his experience with extraterrestrials, Dr. Brackish Okun and ( Brent Spiner ), who awakens from a coma two decades, which remained in the previous attack.
In the story, Emmerich makes a quick start, presenting the new alien attack immediately and introducing the characters who will be responsible for the confrontation. However, with the passage of minutes, ‘Independence Day: Counterattack’ weakens more and more. The moments when you want to take a break, are made through comments and jokes of the players that do not work. Also love stories that are created do not work, are superficial, irrelevant and devoid of emotion.
