Movie Reviews

San Francisco Chronicle - 10/10 by Mick LaSalle The alien attack, taking place in several cities at once, is breathtaking...All the same, Independence Day is consistently funny.
USA Today - 9/10 by Mike Clark It's the first futuristic disaster movie that's as cute as a button. Which, when all the special effects blow over, is what we Americans like in a monster hit.
Los Angeles Times - 8/10 by Kenneth Turan Cities engulfed by rolling walls of flame, sinister aquamarine power blasts turning beloved national monuments to toast, even the roiling clouds the spaceships appear out of, they are all disturbing, unsettling and completely convincing.
Empire - 8/10 by Kim Newman Like 2001, Star Wars and Jurassic Park, it ups the special effects stakes and gets closer to putting on screen the images you've had in your mind while reading epic sci-fi.
The New York Times - 8/10 by Elvis Mitchell Two reasons it's impossible to resist "Independence Day": because of its pitch-perfect cartoonish dialogue ("Now you're never gonna get to fly the space shuttle if you marry a stripper!") and because the Captain, like Indiana Jones, is so unflappably tough.
TV Guide Magazine - 8/10 by Maitland McDonagh The aliens, meanwhile, are a fabulously nasty lot of slimy, tentacled, malevolent telepaths, but all their superior technology is no match for our red, white and blue ingenuity. Take that, space bullies!
San Francisco Examiner - 6/10 by Barbara Shulgasser Fans of sci-fi, special effects, big explosions, panicky crowd scenes and theater sound systems cranked up way beyond the capacity of the human ear to hear comfortably will love this movie. I am not among you.
Chicago Sun-Times - 6/10 by Roger Ebert For all of its huge budget, Independence Day is a timid movie when it comes to imagination. The aliens, when we finally see them, are a serious disappointment.
ReelViews - 5/10 by James Berardinelli With its hackneyed plot, feeble attempts at characterization, and predictable finale, the second half of Independence Day becomes an extremely dull and lifeless affair.
Austin Chronicle - 5/10 by Marc Savlov Once you get past the admittedly breathtaking shots of our national landmarks being turned into kindling, the rest of the film is a tired and empty two hours of feel-good patriotism and oddly cast characters.
Variety - 5/10 by Todd McCarthy The cutting-edge perfection of effects in Cameron and Spielberg films is replaced here by work that looks more homemade, particularly toward the end in some faintly cheesy composite shots.
Newsweek - 5/10 by David Ansen The dialogue is tacky, the characters stock and the special effects no improvement on anything George Lucas did 20 years ago.
