Product Description

Product Description

Independence Day (Five Star Col

From Amazon.co.uk

If you’ve got your high definition television set up, and your Blu-ray player or Playstation 3 at the ready, then surely home cinema demo material rarely comes in better shape than Independence Day.

The spectacular 1996 blockbuster stars Will Smith in the early part of his movie career and, of course, tells the tale of invaders from other worlds bringing mighty ships to the Earth. And particularly in the first half, Independence Day wrings so much tension and style from their arrival that few films have equalled it since. The sheer spectacle of set pieces such as the blowing up of the White House, or the massive battle in the skies, simply deserves to be seen and enjoyed in high definition.

Independence Day, of course, does go a bit daft as it goes about wrapping up its simple-yet-compelling premise, but it’s really very hard not to forgive it. So ambitious were the effects at the time that they still stand up now, and as far as science fiction blockbusters go, this remains one of the finest in recent memory.

Of course, high definition does it wonders. The film looks razor-sharp, and coupled with a punchy sound mix, Independence Day is quite superb demo material. That it’s also a fun blockbuster too is an added, and very welcome treat. --Jon Foster --This text refers to an alternate DVD edition.

When this film was released back in 96' We'd already seen
the early 'Star War' movies, which had impressive graphics at that time.
When they came to make 'independence day' film makers
were experimenting with new technology which at that time
was pretty realistic and set a 'benchmark' for future film
makers to improve upon.( we all know they have )
At the time the 'special effects were more than impressive..
The film -
'Giant' alien craft hover above significant locations
around the globe,they are hell- bent on wiping out both life
and the infra-structure of planet earth.
Attempts to communicate with the uninvited visitors proves
futile.
'Wlll smith' as Captain Steven Hiller to the rescue with a little
help from 'Randy Quaid' as 'Russell Casse'
Seriously this is a fast moving and very enjoyable movie
experience, plenty of, sometimes tongue-in-cheek action
sequences.
Blu-ray upgrade is pretty good.
A Sci-fi adventure always worth re-visiting occasionally.

INDEPENDENCE DAY - INCLUDING 'RESTORED' THEATRICAL AND EXTENDED VERSION (released 30/5/2016)
(Two-Disc)
Well worth the investment whether like myself you already own the original Blu-ray release....
The picture quality upgrade (restored) is superb.
Ahead of the release of 'INDEPENDENCE DAY'- 'RESURGENCE' (a preview of which is included on -board this
release) this, certainly worthy of a re-watch.

Although I already have a Blu-ray version of Independence Day it only contained the Theatrical version and almost no special features. I am very pleased to have obtained this version as it contains both the Theatrical and Extended versions plus a whole load of special features including a recent look back at the making of the movie. Plus it was a whole lot cheaper. One sad note since the movies original release two of the main stars are no longer with us. James Rebhorn who played Secretary of Defence Nimzicki died in 2014 and Robert Loggia who played General Grey died in 2015 both will be sadly missed. I highly recommend this version even if like me you already own the other.

Amazon's film description covers everything and more I can say about the plot. Really dig this release of the mid-90's blockbuster due to the inclusion of the directors or extended cut of the film, which helps give more of the characters background and rectifies a few plot holes and awkwardly cut scenes from the theatrical release.

Disc also contains a plethora of extras such as gag reels, behind the scenes and making of documentaries.

An easy five stars

Great remaster of the original ID4, looks like it was filmed yesterday, the bluray never looked better!
Crisp, great sound. What better way to watch my favourite cheesey alien invasion film from the 90's?

Oooh and just in the time for the sequel (which is the same cheese ball - yet enjoyabe all the same).

Definitely no brainer films that you are meant to suspend belief, and simply enjoy!
So go enjoy! Dont read this! ENJOY!!!!

Independence Day is arguably one of the greatest SF disaster movies of all time. With REM’s ‘It’s the end of the world’ sampled near the beginning of the movie, you definitely know that Roland Emmerich’s view about alien encounters is more akin to War of the Worlds than E.T. Filled with stunning special effects, stirring music, unpretentious sentimentality and laced with good natured humour there is no need to bemoan the lack of character development or obvious narrative coincidences. There is no pretence at being a great cinematic masterpiece examining deep philosophical themes. This is a two hour long, ludicrously enjoyable, preposterously pompous, unbelievably incredible ‘backs against the wall’ slice of SF fantasy which still entertains after numerous viewings. Having just watched this again a few weeks after watching Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar I had to smile when I noticed that President Bill Pullman and senior NASA scientist Michael Caine both quoted or paraphrased Dylan Thomas’ “Do not go gentle into that good night”. Highly recommended for a first or repeat viewing.

...for damning the film because of a technical issue. To the chap who gave the film 1 star, you realise everyone will see that, for some reason Independance Day has been rated a surprisingly low score? And you've done this because Amazon didn't tell you it wasn't US-player compatible? Grow up! Post your comments in the forums, and email Amazon. I'm all for the trade descriptions act, but putting people off the film because yours doesn't work?
To balance it out, I think the film is great, it's not the smartest of films, but who cares? It's from that era when everything WIll Smith touch turned to gold, with this, Men In Black and Wild WIld West. Ok, not Wild Wild West, but nevermind. A classic 'Hollywood Blockbuster', re-jigged in Shiny-Hi-Def-Vision (c), which ticks all the right boxes on the basic, bright colours and loud noises film checklist.
