Editorial Reviews

When global warming triggers the onset of a new Ice Age, tornadoes flatten Los Angeles, a tidal wave engulfs New York City and the entire Northern Hemisphere begins to freeze solid. Now, climatologist Jack Hall (Dennis Quaid), his son Sam (Jake Gyllenhaal) and a small band of survivors must ride out the growing superstorm and stay alive in the face of an enemy more powerful and relentless than any they've ever encountered: Mother Nature!

5.0 out of 5 stars Beware the Superstorm June 21, 2005
Format:DVD
I have to say that this film really reminded me of Armageddon. Not in story or plot, but in the way that the movie can be so enjoyable and make little sense when it comes to science and common sense. The movie is loosely based on the book THE COMING OF THE GLOBAL SUPERSTORM and concerns massive climate changes and how they affect life as we know it.

The movie begins on an ice shelf where a climatologist is taking core samples. These samples combined with events on the shelf drive the scientist (Quaid) to hypothesize that a new ice age is in the near future unless we change our ways now. To keep things movie, Quad is wrong on the time frame and things begin happening very quickly and drastically. Like ID4, we follow a number of groups as they are affected by the events, especially Quaid and his almost estranged family.

Typical of this type of film, politics and politicians are painted as bad guys although some do come to their senses. The action never lets up and the special effects are absolutely stunning. There are a couple of deleted scenes on the disk that really help link a number of events better than they were in the final product, but the movie worked well without them.

If you are a fan of disaster films then this is one of the biggest you could see. Check it out.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Day After Tomorrow....... October 18, 2004
Format:DVD
Let me begin this review by saying one thing, The Day After Tomorrow is an excellent movie. I loved it. The special effects were outstanding. It's good fun for a date movie.

But,....trying to take this movie seriously is actually hard. The story revolving around global warming and the world being hit hard within a week is a bit too hard to swallow. Too, there's just some things in the movie that I just don't see happening quite the same way if they were to happen in real life. I'm not saying that we shouldn't take the threat of global warming seriously but the way it is presented in this movie is ridiculous. If the writer of the film took more time to research the material on global warming, I think he(and Roland Emmerich) could have made an even better film. As much as I love disaster flicks(having collected the majority of them that has come out in recent memory), I really don't know if I could recommend this one for people to buy.

However, if you're hankering for a disaster flick to watch on a Friday night with family and friends eating pizza and popcorn, then- this is a rental that's sure to please.

4.0 out of 5 stars Amazing Effects September 25, 2004
By Elle
Format:DVD
The Day After Tomorrow has some of the most amazing special effects I've ever seen. The cast does an amazing job with what they have to work with,(Quaid and Gyllenhaal do a wonderful job as well as new comer Emmy Rossum). It does have some pretty funny moments as well,( Americans crossing into Mexico illegaly.) The script could be better as well as some parts of the story line. Altogether though it is a wonderful movie that I would recomend.

4.0 out of 5 stars I can see this films upsets some... June 5, 2004
By isala
Emmerich does not go in for subtleties. The message in the film is: clear up the act now - before long it will be too late. In many ways the message is similar to the message in Independence Day, but since no one got it then he uses the sledgehammer now. Obviously the message is understood, since so many critics line up to refute the science in the film. Emmerich does take some liberties with the science, but not as many as I feared (I am an climate scientist myself). It is called artistic license. In Independence Day, the president - modelled on Bush the Elder, is the hero. Here, the president, very closely modelled on Bush the Second, is a non-entity totally dependent on his vice president, even more closely modelled on Cheney!
The special effects are great, and quite poignant. The human drama can sometimes be very touching, like the doomed British scientists drinking to England and Man U.
There is some hilarious moments when the Americans try to escape to Mexico, and the Mexicans close the border - claiming that "you did not accept us, why should we accept you?!"
The film has many moments like that - when the people who are used to be on top find themselves beggars, prey to wild animals, victims of weather, and so on. One minor character, a black rough sleeper, has a a kind of "I told you so" role. He is the only one that is unfaced by what is happening. He just takes it in his stride, and just accepts the new situation, which is not much different from before for him.
