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!

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.

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.

Format: DVD
Did it matter that "Independence Day" by the same Director had even less of a connection with possible future scenarios? NO, but "Independence Day" did not rely so heavily on special effects [though it was full of them] and therein lies part of the difference. "Independence Day" also had a unique chemistry that seemed to give it a connection to 50's-style, alien-invader flicks, thereby cultivating an affinity from those fans --including me.

After all, does "Superman" [the "good alien invader"] need to be believable? More importantly - -

Of course, the science is ridiculous in almost all of these speculative fiction flicks. Remember this is Hollywood film fiction and this fictional account is not "Gone With The Wind". On the other hand, I found "THE DAY AFTER TOMORROW" to be so much more watchable than "Men In Black" which suffered from an excess of humourous, flashy, fanciful, madcap, silly, glib and goofy moods to be watchable for me.

This film appears to be trying at least to make a go of it. By that I mean making the unbelievable less, well, unbelievable. Dennis Quaid as a scientist-husband-father does well to keep us connected emotionally to the horrific events lending some much needed empathy to this spectacle. Ian Holm as the Brittish scientist is, well, Ian Holm; which is to say he always turns in a top-notch performance and his sequences are much needed in making the most unscientific theories work well enough to partially suspend our disbelief -- hopefully for at least 123 minutes.

Going against the film is the obvious post-9/11 sentiment, making the destruction of American cities, shown principally to American audiences, somewhat worse than politically incorrect.
