It’s not like Independence Day is really that much of a classic. Mostly for the fact that it hasn’t aged that well. It has Michael Bay-like levels of senseless spectacle, overstated American patriotism, an overly romantic view of characters and plotlines, and special effects that don’t hold up to modern viewing. But it is highly regarded. Highly enough to warrant a sequel? Enough people thought so to get Independence Day: Resurgence made.
