  • The alien attack, taking place in several cities at once, is breathtaking...All the same, Independence Day is consistently funny. show more

  • A rousing state-of-the-art cartoon capped by an aerial-combat climax that, to its credit, isn't anti-climactic. [2 July 1996, p.D1]

  • 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. show more
