(2016) The premise of this reprise of the hit alien-fighting epic of 20 years ago, in which the nations of the world united to fight a common foe, led by an inspirational United States president and a swaggering fighter pilot, hasn't aged well. Viewers who enjoy alien-invasion tales are unlikely to care so much once the shooting begins, however. Instead of showing real human anguish, director and co-writer Roland Emmerich is only interested in obliterating buildings and aircraft. Language issues here aren't so strong as to preclude mature adolescents, but they're likely to be puzzled at the absence of cyber-warfare and the presence of thousands upon thousands of jet fighters. Action violence, fleeting rough and profane language. (A-III – adults). (PG-13 -- parents strongly cautioned. Some material may be inappropriate for children under 13). HBO (cable)
