I pretty much had the same opinion. Easily the least of the series, but I overall give it a thumbs up, warts and all. You know its interesting, because when Lucas and Spielberg were fighting about whether or not the movie should be about aliens, Independence Day came out. And then Spielberg went to Lucas and said, "See Goerge! Independence Day came out and was a great movie and became a big hit! Now we cant do aliens!" Well Mr. Spielberg, let me say that KOTKS is a FAR BETTER movie than Independence Day. And I think that's why it got decent reviews, in spite of not being as good as the first 3.
