KA Independence Day Rating 3 out of 5


  • Roland Emmerich


  • Jeff Goldblum
  • Judd Hirsch
  • Randy Quaid
  • Mary McDonnell
  • Will Smith
  • Bill Pullman


American president Bill Pullman, boffin Jeff Goldblum and fighter pilot Will Smith battle to save the day when nasty extraterrestrials pitch up, leaving grim calling cards in Europe before moving onto America. It's jingoistic hokum from a master of the art - director Roland Emmerich - but outrageously enjoyable nonetheless, largely thanks to the game playing and the Oscar-winning special effects. Spielberg's War of the Worlds shows a nastier side of the sci-fi coin.
