Poor Independence Day: Resurgence. Did it ever stand a chance? Independence Day was a huge success in 1996. But the sequel, 20 years later, not so well reviewed. Although Jeff Goldblum brought back his star power for the sequel, mega star Will Smith skipped out on the film which might have been for the best.

We have to ask: Is Independence Day: Resurgence really that bad?

Here's the sequel's synopsis, according to 20th Century Fox

We always knew they were coming back. After INDEPENDENCE DAY redefined the event movie genre, the next epic chapter delivers global spectacle on an unimaginable scale. Using recovered alien technology, the nations of Earth have collaborated on an immense defense program to protect the planet. But nothing can prepare us for the aliens’ advanced and unprecedented force. Only the ingenuity of a few brave men and women can bring our world back from the brink of extinction.

Some say the film bombed. It only brought in a little more than $41 million at the box office opening weekend—making less than Finding DoryOther critics blasted the film's lack of humor, fun and character.

But fans say it's not meant to be the original. Rather, it's an action-packed adventure that shouldn't be taken too seriously. Critics, they say, are being too hard on the film.

But what do you think: Is #IDRReallyBad or is #IDRUnderrated?
