One of the biggest box office hits of all time, Independence Day delivers the ultimate encounter when mysterious and powerful aliens launch an all out invasion against the human race. The spectacle begins when massive spaceships appear in Earth's skies. But wonder turns to terror as the ships blast destructive beams of fire down on cities all over the planet. Now the world's only hope lies with a determined band of survivors, uniting for one last strike against the invaders -- before it's the end of mankind.

After 20 years, you all must know the story line so I will skip right to what I myself would have liked to see in a simple review.
The transfer is superb on a Samsung UHD 65" with equivalent Samsung up converting blu ray 3D player. On a par with quality of movies like The Martian and such. One big ding for the HD download only available in theatrical version (have email from Fox confirming same). The experience itself will not disappoint. Enjoy it like you have never seen it before! Shame of Fox for the poor decision of going so far but not quite making it to the finish line with the download.
Final thought: don't give up on 3D! keep them coming.
The plot is fairly straight forward, aliens are here and they do not come in peace. With their overwhelming technology (remember, they brought their entire civilization light-years across the vastness of space in ships 1/6 the mass of the moon), they should be able to easily wipe out mankind and just take what they want, but they obviously didn't count on Will Smith (a very self confident fighter pilot) and Jeff Goldblum (an under achieving technical genius) to team up against them. There are a lot of plot devices to move the show along, mostly in the form of a string of improbable coincidences, stereotypical characters, and unlikely technical wizardry.
All that taken into consideration, this is still an incredibly watchable and enjoyable movie (we own it on DVD, Blu-Ray, and have even used "On-Demand" to watch it on my PC when stranded in an airport).
In the end, they are able to defeat the aliens by uploading a computer virus in the mother ship. After that, the entire planet unites in a final attack against the aliens. A crowning moment came when one man sacrifices himself to destroy the city destroying weapon, thus destroying the ship itself.
This is a great film to add to your movie collection.
