Independence Day/The Abyss (2005) Horror Movie Review
Horror movies Review
INDEPENDENCE DAY: I still remember very vividly when my mom yelled “Oh My God!” when we watched the preview trailers for this movie around the time it was released. Upon seeing it, I have to say that “Independence Day” is one of the greatest sci-fi action movies that I have ever seen. Seven years later (At the time of this review), this movie still packs a big punch. The story is of when a large and vicious alien race invade the earth through city-sized spacecraft and wage war against Earth’s humanity and now the humans all stop fighting each other and join forces to destroy the alien ships and the aliens themselves before they destroy every major city on earth, suck out all of it’s resources and move on to the next planet. This is a truly magnificent movie. One of the best of 1996.
THE ABYSS: This beautifully directed 1989 treasure is a very slow yet engaging classic courtesy of James Cameron. It takes place during the heights of the cold war when an American nuclear submarine crashes and goes down to the ocean floor along with several nuclear submarines near an Oil Rig and the Navy SEALS send a crew of divers down to the ocean to investigate and salvage the wreckage and retrieve the nuclear warheads that are still live but unarmed but they encounter two major problems. One is one of their crew is a traitor and is searching for the nukes to use against America while they also discover while down in the dark depths of the ocean that humanity may not be alone afterall. This is a truly excellent movie and the visuals are amazing.
