Cringe-inducing dialogue? Tick. Lots of shit being blown up? Double tick. Flexing of muscles as the stars of the day indulge in a display of cinematic cock-fighting? Triple tick.

What Emmerich does do is present some very good action sequences which is probably why he was offered the opportunity to direct Independence Day.

Roland Emmerich's best film, and Lundgren's best acting job. Admittedly that ain't saying much in either case, but a fun flick all in all.

Perhaps Van Damme and Lundgren trade blows more easily than lines, but the whole affair is enjoyable in a mindless way.
