Buy this DVD for a great laugh and relive the 1996 madness
| Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.
I would thoroughly recommend this DVD of this wonderfully ridiculous movie.
I bought this DVD to add to my comedy collection as it is very silly and of course a great laugh. Jeff Goldblum is a comedy genius! Bill Pullman doesn't seem to be trying too hard to shake off his "Spaceballs" spoof acting (which adds to the fun), and Will Smith is at his egotistical best.
This version of the movie is great, it includes 8 minutes of footage that weren't in the original edit. Some people may not like that the menu doesn't have any option to show the movie without these extra bits though! They are nice touches though and I don't think they should have been cut out.
There is meant to be an audio commentary by Roland Emerich and Dean Devlin but there is no apparent way to access it from the menu. Also the menu has a button called "Inside Look" but that's for the making of "The Day After Tomorrow", not "Independence Day".
Please note the image ebay is displaying is not the image on the dvd box I am reviewing! For accuracy the barcode is 5039036017350 and the refs on the spine of the box are f1-sgb 04118vdvd. The image is Will Smith and the earth.
Independence Day dvd
The film itself is good, no questions, but the quality of this dvd leaves a lot to be desired. It sticks in places, jumps in others, I don't feel it's an original, I could be wrong, but it's not good quality, it was my son who bought it, and he wouldn't send it back. The cover and case are okay, it's just hard to watch the film that sticks, then goes out of time for a short while before starting again. Don't think I'd look for a dvd from ebay, but my son still would I'm sure.

description was correct,very good film would recommend
we like the film it is one of our all time favourie films we only had it on video so we decided to get it on dvd, it is a good all round family film.
Great film from start to finish. Film included some great actors like Will Smith and Jeff Goldrum. Really enjoyed it, and watched it several times before on the tv before i purchased this on dvd. Best bits is when the aliens attacked Washington and New York. Highly recommended to anyone who likes sci-fi films.
Fantastic movie, watched it several times before, wore out the video so decided to get it on dvd. :-)
