Product Description

Amazon.ca

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

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!

3.0 out of 5 stars It was okay Feb. 11 2007
Format:DVD
Quickly: great effects, good acting, bad science, meh movie.

Summary: Global warming causes the next ice age. That's basically it. You follow the story of a few groups of people and how this affects them then it focuses in on one family.

The Good: the effects were great, from ice falling on people in Japan to the frozen Statue of Liberty. You can tell this was the main focus of the movie and they do a good job. The acting was rather good in this, and I had no complaints about any performances. The pacing was also good, as I wasn't bored at any one point.

The Bad: the preaching. I knew it would be there, but things like the 'evil' vice president giving the 'save the world' speech at the end when he was proved wrong was too much. The fact the plot eventually switched to just the one family and really just the Father trying to save the son was pretty typically Hollywood lame. The father making up with his wife was worse. The plot was alright but really, it's just a giant effects movie, there isn't much meat.

The Ugly: the science. I don't know much about weather patterns and such but this was just hokey. The wolves! Why?!?

Overall: not the worst I have ever seen, but no where near the best. A typical effects blockbuster and don't expect any more then that. It was OK, the effects were cool, the acting was good, the science was suspect and the plot was contrived.

Has no one noticed this DVD claims it is DTS but is not. Why do they keep doing this to us? Because they are out of our reach!

3.0 out of 5 stars One big global warming (O.K. cooling) commercial Dec 22 2013
By bernie TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:Blu-ray
This is the standard disaster movie where the weather will get you and your little dog too.

Yep due to global warming and we are due an early ice age. Only Jack Hall (Dennis Quaid) and his local crew can see the truth. The last people to admit it, after the fact, is our illustrious government. So will jack's family freeze along with the neighborhood doggy before the government sees the error of their ways? Or will Jack go to the rescue with his intrepid friends?

We get to watch one mini-disaster after another as the local folk who never listen to the smart brat go out and freeze their tails off. All the kibitzing in the world will not help as they never listen.

As usual the DVD has a Commentary by director/co-writer/producer Roland Emmerich and producer Mark Gordon that try to explain what they are saying. It helps but not enough.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awsome Movie! April 14 2007
By D. Landry TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
I have quite a collection of DVD movies and when people ask me which one of all do I like best, it always comes down to "The Day After Tomorrow"! The plot is great and believable, the cast is excellent, and the effects are out of this world! This movie got me sitting at the edge of my seat from the start to the end. There are movies that I own which I haven't seen yet, but this one, I've watched 3 times and would not hesitate to watch it again and again.

3.0 out of 5 stars The Ultimate Disaster Dec 29 2004
Format:VHS Tape
The ultimate disaster movie, The Day After Tomorrow depicts a change in climate that sweeps the globe and triggers a modern ice age. An original premise long overdue for cinematic treatment, it offers astonishing and eerie imagery: multiple tornadoes whipping across Los Angeles, an arctic depression over Scotland freezing all beings in an instant, a tidal surge engulfing Manhattan, and flocks of birds flying south for the summer.
Director Roland Emmerich (who thrilled audiences with 1996's Independence Day) clearly delights in scenes of mass destruction. Artfully crafted, these successive calamities come one after another with but a handful of humorous moments to break the tension.
At the centre of the story is Jack Hall, a paleoclimatologist studying the effects of global warming. His chilling theories are ignored by government officials - a plot point that is all too common in such films - even as the world is ravaged by extreme weather conditions. And after the northern hemisphere is encircled by frigid storms, Hall must journey from Washington to New York to rescue his teenaged son, Sam.
Though such an Armageddon would take a couple of centuries to evolve (barring a shift of the earth's magnetic axis), the film compresses developments into just a few days. Thankfully, the scientific interpretations are presented clearly and logically without getting buried in technical jargon.
Like Independence Day, Emmerich (who co-wrote the screenplay with Jeffrey Nachmanoff) plunges headfirst into the storyline, and populates the film with an enormous number of characters. But they all react rather placidly to the shocking events, with little hysteria or emotion - their hearts seem as cold and unfeeling as the eventual all-consuming blizzard.
