INDEPENDENCE DAY is a science fiction action thriller about humanity's defence of Earth from an alien invasion.

Violence

There are frequent scenes of moderate action violence, including cities being destroyed by large alien weapons, and smaller alien ships engaging in dogfights with military jets in which planes explode, implying the death of the pilots. During an autopsy of an alien life form, a doctor is choked by the alien's tenticular arm before the creature is shot.

Language

There is infrequent use of strong language ('f**k'), and occasional mild bad language including 'bastard', 'crap', 'ass', 'son of a bitch'.

A female dancer is referred to as a 'stripper' and is briefly seen in a small outfit dancing in a club.

A male character is believed to have been abducted by aliens in the past, and other characters enquire, mockingly, as to whether he was sexually abused by them. A male teen is also seen asking his girlfriend if she wants to die a virgin, as it may be their last night on Earth.
