'THE 'U.S.A' SAVE THE WORLD - ''AGAIN'' (GREAT SPECIAL-EFFECTS IN THIS 90'S APOCALYPTIC OFFERING) (includes 30/5/16 release rev
on 24 May 2014
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
'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
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)
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.
