‘Independence Day: Resurgence’

HO00003367Surprisingly low-key on the action front, Independence Day: Resurgence feels like a character introduction to future sequels.

An ensemble that sees a whole bevy returning from the original 1996 Independence Day actioner (including Jeff Goldblum, Bill Pulman, Judd Hirsch and Brent Spiner), but the emphasis here is on the strutting pretty-boy duo of Liam Hemsworth (The Hunger Games, The Dressmaker) and Jessie T Usher (When the Game Stands Tall), fighter pilots out to prove their point.

Emphasising character is fine if the characters are interesting. Sadly, this is not the case and, whilst the special effects and, when it comes, the action are entertaining enough, it all gets bogged down in tedium.
