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.

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.Read more ›
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.
