Whether you decide to see this in 3D or not, it’s fair to say that the visuals and action carry this movie more than anything. The level of destruction is taken up a few notches compared to the previous Independence Day (1996). The stakes are certainly raised and the threat of the alien attack no joke. It was intriguing to see the damage the aliens caused to the planet and the entire human race.
Blake Lively plays a great survivalist. You could tell she worked out for the part and immersed herself in the world of surfing to prepare for her character. She managed to display a fair range of aspects to her character. She was vulnerable when times seemed bleak, but tough when danger presented itself. The mere fact that she’s able to keep your attention while being one of the only people on screen for about 75% of the movie speaks highly to her performance.
