    Special effects movie

    I agree with those who gave it a more realistic review. The story takes a back seat to the visuals. It is impressive to watch the alien ships blow up the White House and it is very realistic. Seeing the massive ships come out of the clouds is downright freaky so I admit that the effects are worth the experience itself. Having said that, they had almost no interaction with the creatures and we are to just go on the idea that they must be evil and we need to destroy them. Needed more.

    OK Sci Fi for general audience

    The special effects are groundbreaking for the time the movie was made. The aliens are scary and believeable. The really spectacular part of the movie was Vivica Fox. She is magnificent. Her hind quarters were in full view, splendid junk in the trunk. Will smith is as always terrible, still re-hashing his Fresh prince garbage, still making the same jokes and inane faces from that TV show. He needs to totally deconstruct himself and rid his psyche of all that has come before. It is very lame to keep recycling the fresh prince in every movie he makes. All I need to do is delve back down into the great ending one more time and I am spent. Thanks Vivica.

    barry....a sci-fi movie lover

    This movie was good in many ways but what kept it from being great was having Will Smith's character trying to be funny in a movie that should be serious.
