Every once in a while, I go looking through the movies on Amazon Prime. Most of them are terrible, it’s a good thing I don’t pay extra for this because there is rarely anything on it that I would watch.
At first, I figured someone made a mistake, there’s no way that the new Independence Day movie showed up on Amazon Prime, which of course, it didn’t. This is another one of those mockbusters, trying to cash in on actual movies with low budget crap. But hey, I had time to kill and it might be fun, so let’s take a look at Independence Wars: Insurgence and see just how terrible it is.
When aliens come through a wormhole behind the moon, it’s up to a rag tag group of heroes to fight back before their mental infection turns the entire planet into alien zombies. Yes, that’s really what this movie is about. It’s every bit as stupid as it sounds.
This one is bad. Real bad. Absolutely awful. In fact, it reminds me a lot of James Nguyen’s Birdemic. I might even go so far as to say Birdemic was better made. The actors, and I use that term very loosely, can’t act. At all. The effects are laughable. The story is non-existent. I can’t imagine how anyone in the cast made it through some of these lines without either bursting into laughter or vomiting on their shoes. I’m a fan of bad movies but this one is entirely irredeemable. There is absolutely nothing at all to recommend this film. It is terrible from beginning to end. It’s just painfully bad in every respect.
And that’s hard to say about a movie, even the worst films usually have something worth seeing. Even the ones so bad they’re good are worth sitting through once. This is an exception. This is so bad it’s awful. In retrospect, I can’t say there’s anything worthwhile about this movie and I’m out 90 minutes of my life I can never get back. Don’t watch this thing. Ever. Don’t bother. You’d be better served spending 90 minutes picking your nose.
