    "Today we celebrate - our Independence Day!!!!! That speech by President Whitmore has been carved into my mind since the first time I saw the movie, its so powerful and inspiring that I just want to go out and beat alien ass every time I hear it :) The whole movie is great, amazing special effects that have aged well, charismatic characters (especially Will Smith's and Jeff Goldblum's, they have amazing chemistry together), and a good story line. Its a shame the sequel was so mind numbingly bad!"

    "Watching this movie a few years back really gave me insight into the inner workings and corruption prevalent within politics and the best part is, they highlighted it in a way that's really damn funny. Most of the movies these days that tackle politics is either too serious to be paid attention to, or too funny to be taken seriously. This film really highlighted it in a balanced way that keeps you informed and entertained at the same time."

    "Despite some inaccuracies, the movie itself is pretty damn good, Mel Gibson and Heath Ledger's acting is superb in this one, I have to say. It's set in during the American Revolution, so maybe it can show some moviegoers how our forefathers fought for our independence. It's pretty refreshing to see a historically-based work of fiction with excellent performances and cinematography tbh"

    "Watched this movie with my pops when I was a kid and we had a blast doing it. Most of the war movies I've seen usually just show the Air Force as planes that arrive just in time for the ground soldiers not get slaughtered, so it's pretty rare to see movies about our pilots and the constant difficulties that they face. I'd totally watch this again if given the chance."

    "An old film from when my dad was still young, so don't really expect some underlying meanings and symbolisms. This is a hardcore action movie through and through. But still, it's not everyday you see an American president in a movie actually doing something rather than slowing down the film's main protagonist and really reminded me of old action flicks."

    "When my dad was still alive, he used to quote "life is like a box of chocolates" plenty of times. 8 years later, after watching Forrest Gump, I finally realized where it came from and it made me tear up a little bit. Since then, this has been one of my ultimate favorites and has taught me that not everything you want is what you need. Love it!"

After seeing The First Avenger, I really couldn't wait to see this, and I wasn't disappointed. My vet grandpa really enjoyed the first film, and I'm p sure that he'll enjoy this one as well"

    "And another terrorist attack on US soil is thwarted yet again by none other than America's very own special forces team, the SEALs. As a huge fan of the military, I've always enjoyed movies that center around modern soldiers and their everyday struggles in war-torn lands. Despite the movie's rather bland acting, I thoroughly enjoyed it"

    "My parents and I have really enjoyed the first movie so we admittedly watched this one with high expectations. Though we were a tad disappointed, we still found it fun. The action was pretty lacking, but the story is really well-written, so props for that one. Bottom line is, the movie's good, but not as great as its predecessor"

    "I know this is fiction based on a true event, but watching this movie made me study the tragedy in Pearl Harbor more seriously in school. It also showed the viewpoint of the Japanese in the movie when the event transpired, so it so it put them to light as human beings just following orders rather than faceless grunts."

But hey, if you genuinely enjoy spending the 4th of July watching American teenagers get eaten by great whites, then who am I to judge? Don't get me wrong, this is a great movie, a perfect 10, I'm just a little addled as to how this got here lmao"
