On July 2nd, communications systems worldwide are sent into chaos by a strange atmospheric interference. It is soon learned by the military that a number of enormous objects are on a collision course with Earth. At first thought to be meteors, they are later revealed to be gigantic spacecraft, piloted by a mysterious alien species. After attempts to communicate with the aliens go nowhere, David Levinson, an ex-scientist turned cable technician, discovers that the aliens are going to attack major points around the globe in less than a day. On July 3rd, the aliens all but obliterate New York, Los Angeles, and Washington. The survivors set out in convoys towards Area 51, a strange government testing ground where it is rumored the military has a captured alien spacecraft of their own. The survivors devise a plan to fight back against the enslaving aliens, and July 4th becomes the day humanity will fight for its freedom. July 4th is their Independence Day...


Slightly over-rated Apocalypse ID4 works as a sci-fi action film with humans against aliens.But the story is used from other alien movies and the characters are thin and usual for these movies.Still, this is a big action apocalypse that hs attracted audiences all over the world.Most likely though, this film hasx a message.What message i it?Well, the scene where the White house and Empire State building shows how if you are in the theater, you'll cheer like FDR was president forever.Maybe the message is were already in apocalypse, and only Will Smith, Bill Pullman and Jeff Goldblum will save us.Great entertainment all around.A
