not the best - The Day After Tomorrow review by 'Mandy.C'

Spoiler Alert

It was good, but I have seen better. The effects were fantastic though, very much a typical American movie

LEAVES YOU A LITTLE COLD - The Day After Tomorrow review by CP Customer

Spoiler Alert
27/02/2007

An okay attempt at apocalypse. Great special effects depict the super-sudden return of the ice-age well, though you'd have thought scientist and the military, and the Canadians would have known about it a little sooner. The main characters are unfortunately overly heroic, and their actions a little far fetched. Deep Impact did this style of film better, and with more pathos. Recommended for reconciling rebellious teenagers with their parents whose love know no bounds. And mid-week nights.

Disaster/Survival Film - Great Fun - The Day After Tomorrow review by GI

Spoiler Alert
06/04/2022

A fantastic, enjoyable apocalyptic disaster film where extreme weather events presage an ice age. Forget the science here because this is a piece of hokum but it's all done with panache and spectacular story telling making for a great survival adventure film. Dennis Quaid, a highly underrated American actor, plays climatologist Jack, who, whilst witnessing strange climate changes predicts that the Earth is about to undergo a major atmospheric climate shift. Of course all the politicians don't listen until massive tornados, huge hailstorms and tidal waves start happening. As the world begins to freeze over Jack and a couple of his compadres trek across the now frozen wastelands trying to reach his son, Sam (Jake Gyllenhaal), who is trapped in New York with some of his student friends who have had adventures of their own trying to survive. There's some great CGI effects especially the various storm and weather events from the opening scenes of a huge break in an Antarctic ice shelf to the massive tornadoes devastating Los Angeles and the tidal wave that floods New York. Director Roland Emmerich has made a reputation for himself making these big budget effects film and this one just hits all the right notes especially with following various storylines from the students trapped in New York to Jack making his way to rescue them to a small group of scientists in Scotland trapped in their weather station (Ian Holm and Adrian Lester). If you've never seen this then I really recommend it, it's great fun, exciting and very well done.
