    Dear god no. All the movie had going for it was Special effects. But it was new at the time, now these type of movies are a dime a dozen. We have had enough of the world ending, galactic battle movies with the poor plots movies. It's been done, and it's almost always the same plot rehashed. It's crap like that that keeps me from going to the movies.

    I see some potential for these being pretty decent, but I have the bad feeling that they'll most likely be really bad and pointless...

    Meh. As long as it has fighters dueling with aliens, I don´t care much about the plot. Besides with modern effects the air battles can become bigger.

    Dumb idea. The first one's ending was pretty solid. And of course they'll just have to be shot in 3D... yay for alien ships flying in yo face!

    The first one was fun. I would have liked a sequel back then. I don't know about now. I always wondered if there were aliens that survived the the crashes and had to fight on land at the end of the movie.

    loved ID4, would love a couple of more sequels and if it is written well I would love to see more backstory on the aliens, because they seem to have not much of a motive. Go from planet to planet and destroy that was basically it

    How about a movie where the humans lose? We haven't had one of those in a while...

    I liked the first one and still watch it from time to time. However I think the original stands fine on its own and doesn't need a sequel. A sequel now would be too little too late.

    I would like more ID4, but since the first one, there has been already many movies of the same theme. Battle LA being the latest one

    Ya know, I kind of been hoping for a sequel, but not exactly a true sequel (in the sense that we get attacked by another Mother Ship). I'd like to see how humanity rebuilds with all our major cities destroyed. What kind of new "United Nations" would rise from the rubble? Perhaps we are are to reverse-engineer some of the alien technology? What if we discover another civilization on another planet that is currently under attack by another mother ship? Would we be able to help?

    Stuff like that.
