Storyline Heading
We always knew they were coming back. Using recovered alien technology, the nations of Earth have collaborated on an immense defense program to protect the planet. But nothing can prepare us for the aliens' advanced and unprecedented force.
.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Action Adventure Sci-Fi - While its main star does not return, this sequel to the hit 1996 film is another effects-heavy science fiction action adventure. A number of other cast members from the original return but some like Vivica A. Fox only have very small roles. There is no graphic bloodshed but some mild language and numerous scary scenes with aliens may be too intense for young kids.

Critic's Review Heading

NY Post Full Review
Poor The story is a patchwork of plot elements that don't fit together, and the film is so badly edited that it somehow feels twice as long as the original, even though it's actually half an hour shorter. The design elements look like they were recycled from a dozen other blockbusters.

Slant Magazine Full Review
Terrible The insensitivity displayed toward human life in these sequences would be galling even by Emmerich's standards, if this pitiful albatross of corporate capitalism could work up enough energy to be offensive.

The remaining 25% to 35% felt it was only an "average" movie. There was only a couple of males who rated it "poor" (they must have been professional movie critics :-).
