Product Description

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!

Supreme silliness doesn't stop The Day After Tomorrow from being lots of fun for connoisseurs of epic-scale disaster flicks. After the blockbuster profits of Independence Day and Godzilla, you can't blame director Roland Emmerich for using global warming as a politically correct excuse for destroying most of the northern hemisphere. Like most of Emmerich's films, this one emphasizes special effects over such lesser priorities as well-drawn characters and plausible plotting, and his dialogue (cowritten by Jeffrey Nachmanoff) is so laughably trite that it could be entirely eliminated without harming the movie. It's the spectacle that's important here, not the lame, recycled plot about father and son (Dennis Quaid, Jake Gyllenhaal) who endure an end-of-the-world scenario caused by the effects of global warming. So sit back, relax, and enjoy the awesome visions of tornado-ravaged Los Angeles, blizzards in New Delhi, Japan pummeled by grapefruit-sized hailstones, and Manhattan flooded by swelling oceans and then frozen by the onset of a modern ice age. It's all wildly impressive, and Emmerich obviously doesn't care if the science is flimsy, so why should you? --Jeff Shannon

Customer Reviews

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.
All that happens is theres a few tornadoes, some water, it gets cold, then everything goes back to normal, o yeah and some people freeze in the process.
Disaster films have always been popular movie fare and the Day After tomorrow" really shows off the ultimate in global climate change.

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.

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.

Format: Blu-ray
Granted, this is not an earth shaking drama, but it is a fun pop corn movie with a serious message that if mankind doesn't wake up we will pass the point of no return after we continually destroy our eco system.

No book report summaries of plots here or opinions on acting. I own the Standard Def version and bought the Blu Ray so I will only discuss the quality of the transfer.

From the very first note of the intro score, I knew I was into something good. The audio transfer to lossless DTSHD 5.1 was going to be the star and it is. Hugely deep bass and masterful directionality from your surround system. Clear and precise leveling of dialogue and foley effects. The audio for this movie is completely demo worthy in all areas. Discreet channeling is very frequently made use of though out. Even if you do not care for this movie, simply as a way to show off or test your audio system, this disc will pay off. A tip of the hat to the audio editors on this film.

The video transfer is good, not great. In some areas I did notice a small degree of grain but it is not overly present and there are no artifacts that will distract you from enjoying the film. CGI was a major part of making this film and was done well. Some of it, the wolves on the ship scene, were obvious to me but easy to overlook.

The extras, of which there are many, include deleted scenes, alternate takes on scenes and a few unfinished scenes where the blue screen work had not been completed and they are interesting to watch. However, none of these scenes really would have made for an extended version in my opinion.

All my movie reviews are of this nature and focus only on the quality of the transfer to BluRay so check them and see if they are of help as well.
