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
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
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.

By eric_f
After watching "The Day After Tomorrow," and after allowing a few days to really think about my viewing experience, I would say that generally speaking I enjoyed it, and would recommend it. While not perfect by any means, "The Day After Tomorrow" delivers quite a thrilling ride, for the movie-goer who likes a lot of action, good special effects and drama thrown in.
As I said, it isn't perfect. Unfortunately, it suffers from a very mediocre script. In addition, some elements of the plot are highly cliched. For example, the homeless man who goes from social outcast to one of the heroes who survives all the peril. In addition, I found the obligatory love story between the son and that girl almost laughable.
But that's really all the negative comments I have. The rest of the movie works. Dennis Quaid hands-down gives the best performance out of everyone; in fact I would say that his character is the one whom the audience can connect to the most and therefore care about. We can care about the other characters too, but IMO his performance makes his character the most "human" and vulnerable while also determined.
Finally, any movie that can make one think after they leave the theater is a good movie in my book. And "The Day After Tomorrow" does just that. I walked out of the theater realizing that the scenario I just saw could very well happen in real life (although I think it would be a lot messier and more chaotic than Hollywood's choreographed and CGI version of it). Still, it does make one think, all politics of the movie put aside. The dangers are real no matter what the politics are, and that seems to be the movie's true message. While I doubt it will win any Academy Award, it's definitely worth seeing, especially on the big screen.
