I really genuinely enjoyed this movie. You learned about the characters at the beginning, unlike most action films now a days that go straight to the explosions. The special effects are great for 1996, and not all too much. The aliens aren't that scary, only when the supposedly dead one becomes alive and strangles someone. Many many people die, and many famous landmarks are destroyed. In the end, it's the cable guy David that saves the world, so I guess it's showing that even if your not in the position of power you can still help. There is some sexual content, like a couple sleeping in the same bed, a man using the bathroom(though you see nothing explicit), a short scene of a strip club and women in skimpy outfits, but that's pretty much it. There's a lot of action and death as the cities are blown up, and swearing, but no 'F-bomb'. In the end, the world comes together and corporates with each other to destroy the Aliens, with even the president helping in the fight. In all, this movie is awesome, and I think a movie that most people will thoroughly enjoy.
