Product Description

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

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.

This was one of the worst movies I had ever seen!

Generally, it was negative Global Warming propaganda run amuck - despite actual science!

Special effects were okay, but the plot didn't make much sense. So, the movie seemed preachy and stupid!

For example, in this 'modern-day' disaster, Global Warming was still a big problem - despite, in reality, there had not been Global Warming, for 7 years, already! (The film was made, in 2004, and Global Warming had stopped, in 1997.)

Even as of today (May 15, 2016), there has not been any Global Warming, for 19 years. So, why make this show?

Frankly, I suspect producers of costly and inefficient 'green' tech paid for this flick in order to scare gullible taxpayers into supporting corporate welfare - especially, for those producers.

So, suggested in the film, Global Warming caused, among other scary things, earth quakes. Yes. Earth quakes - despite, in reality, weather could never cause an earth quake.

In the story, Global Warming also gave wolves, in a zoo, super strength - enough to enable them to bite through their strong metal plus concrete pens and escape - despite weather could not give anyone super strength.

The film suffered from inconsistencies. While supposedly walking north, to NYC, for instance, characters walked passed the Statue of Liberty, from the east.

Another inconsistency occurred when NYC flooded, because, after a while, a large ship showed up, in the middle of place. There was no explanation as to why it was there. There was nobody on board. The engines were not working and there did not appear to be a water current. There were, for example, no other ships or floating debris, in sight.

I am eminently capable of enjoying movies with stupid science and/or stupid characters, but there has to be some sort of redeeming quality. For example, even the pie plate flying saucer in "Plan 9 From Outer Space" sounds good compared to the idea of thinking yourself into the past in "Somewhere in Time," but that film had Christopher Reeve making the grand romance work. The problem with "The Day After Tomorrow" is that the best part of the movie comes in the first act, and that is not where you want it to be.
The stupid science here is to take the idea of global warming leading to a radical shift in climate that creates a new ice age and instead of it happening over centuries or years reduce in to days and weeks. No wonder scientists were rending their garments over this film, because even though I never took even biology in high school I know that what is being played fast and loose with in this film goes way beyond hearing explosions in the vacuum of space. However, the whole point of this stupid science is to allow director Roland Emmerich, who also co-wrote the screenplay with Jeffrey Nachmanoff, yet another opportunity to destroy New York City, having taken major bites out of the Big Apple in both "Independence Day" and "Godzilla." But Emmerich is more ambitious this time around, having tornadoes play havoc with the landmarks in Los Angeles before putting NYC in a deep freeze.
In the grand cinematic tradition that goes back beyond Watergate to the science fiction films of the 1950s, a brilliant scientist, climatologist Jack Hall (Dennis Quaid), gets to sound like Cassandra while Vice President Cheney, er Becker (Kenneth Welsh), worries about the fragile economy rather than the fast approaching end of the world as we know it.
