Randy Quaid's character in ID4 is an unlikely hero. Will Smith's, not so much.
I respect your thoughts...and enjoy your posts!
An unlikely hero is someone who doesn't want to be or isn't someone you'd think of being a hero who becomes a hero in spite of that. Will Smith's character in ID4 is an Air Force pilot, alone already a pretty heroic thing. Will Smith is not an unlikely heron in ID4. That probably better describes Jeff Goldblum's character who isn't representative as a hero, isn't heroic but ends up doing a heroic thing.

An unlikely hero isn't someone who ends up being a hero in spite of the odds against him or his original lot in life, since that would pretty much describe every movie hero ever.
Just because it's futuristic doesn't mean it's practical.
