Independence Day: Resurgence - May Be The Dumbest Movie Ever Made

The Roland Emmerich sequel to 1996's classic action blockbuster Independence Day, Resurgence takes everything fun about the original and promptly dumps it, replacing it with an incoherent plot, terrible characters, meaningless action and over the top disaster scenes. The result is quite possibly the dumbest movie ever made.

      I'm guessing this is why Spielberg NEVER did sequels except for THE lost world and even that was worlds BETTER than this SHIT... some directors just shouldn't bother with sequels and emmerich is one of them... most of his films suck anyway so no need to try again dude.

    Why didn't Jeff goldblum visit the ship that had landed? It was explained but you didn't listen. It was in a country controlled by a warlord and did not let people see it. The big black dude with the swords? He became leader of the country when his father died.
