Plot: Jack Hall, paleoclimatologist, must make a daring trek across America to reach his son, trapped in the cross-hairs of a sudden international storm which plunges the planet into a new Ice Age Runtime: 124 mins Release Date: 28 May 2004
The Day After Tomorrow was one of the best "disaster" movies I have seen. The special effects were so realistic, you really felt you were there. The movie kept me on the edge of my seat. What you see in the promos is only the tip of the iceberg, no pun intended. Dennis Quaid was just perfect as Jack Hall. You could really believe he was a paleoclimatologist, as well as a devoted father. Dennis' acting is so natural, he makes it look easy. Jake Gyllenhaal was perfect as his son, showing the typical emotions of a teenager, unsure of himself at first and then starting to take <more>
control of the situation, proving to be as capable as his father. Emmy Rossum was very credible as Jake's girlfriend and Sela Ward was just right as Jake's mom. Ian Holm was the elderly Scottish scientist, keeping a stiff upper lip while the weather was going haywire. This is a must see movie if you are a fan of "disaster" movies like Twister and Earthquake. I will probably see this movie again in the theaters because it was so enjoyable. It is a great way to spend 2 + hours.
A review by someone who actually SAW the movie! (by ken_1969)
May Contain Spoilers. Unlike some reviewers RoboSlater who happily bad-mouth movies they clearly didn't watch here's a review from a genuine movie fan who watched and greatly enjoyed The Day After Tomorrow.A great cast headed by Dennis Quaid and Jake Gyllenhall give a solid heart to the movie, and unlike other disaster movies where you find yourself not really caring here you are rooting for them all the way.The film digresses from the usual Hollywood approach where the Yanks save the day. The day cannot really be saved, and in contrast the American President is taken to task for <more>
not listening sooner. Countless lives are lost because of his failure and I found this a nicely ironic touch mirroring the current US political situation and adding to the drama.Another reviewer seems to think an America without a Good President to act as moral compass is unbelievable - when we all know it's become de rigeur.This apparrently professional reviewer also apparrently wasn't paying attention to the movie, as he criticises Quaid's character - "When tornados hit Hollywood and start ripping up other cities instantaneously, he still lets his moody high-school-age son Jake Gyllenhaal go to New York on a school outing." This isn't the case at all - we've already seen Jake on the plane before the tornados hit and that is the first clue that Quaid's predictions of climate change may actually be occurring much sooner than he ever thought possible.The troubled father-son relationship is in fact well played throughout, and Jake's character develops nicely. Quaid is charming as ever.The Special Effects are amazing - of course there are many set-pieces and they all just took my breath away, yet you are never too far removed from the human drama.OK, bottom line this is a popcorn movie, a little cheesy in places, perhaps a bit contrived, but come on what did you expect? What I will say it's just not your run-of-the-mill Hollywood popcorn movie, and I guarantee you will be entertained.Ignore the negative reviews from those who weren't paying attention, go see this film Tomorrow, because who knows what will happen after that!
This film is one of the better films of this decade. The best part of the film is the effects. They were utterly amazing. Dennis Quaid and Jake G. are father and son who gets caught in the worst storm the earth has seen since the last ice age. They battle their strengths and weaknesses to survive this storm. As I mentioned above, the effects were outstanding. I liked the tornadoes in LA part the best. The acting is superb especially with Quaid. Not to sound so political, the theme is a real-life issue. Global warming is a big problem with the earth's environment. I am surprised about all <more>
the negative reviews about this film. I guess critics dislike just about everything these days. I recommend this film to everyone. I rate this film a 10/10.
I am not sure if I should put my input yet, because I saw about 90% of the movie but from what I did see it was great. I was very impressed. This film had realistic graphics and intense moments where I felt like there was no other way out, and the drive that was obvious in Quaid's character to reach his son was strong. The Day After Tomorrow made me think about our instincts. It is so true that only the strong survive. When a challenge if you can call the next Ice Age a challenge..... is in front of us..who will make it out alive?...Survival of the fitness......but anyway....Great <more>
movie, I recommend completely. A movie you can get lost in.....Brrrrrrrrr........it's cold in here....hand me a sweater will you?....
The Day After Tommarrow was a great movie! A GREAT GREAT GREAT Movie! It was filled with suspense, horror, comedy, romance and plain, flat-out entertaining fun!!!! Its about a group of friends who seek the end of the world as we know it. There are floods in NYC and the whole north hemisphere is going through the 2nd Ice Age. Only a group of people decide to make the right decision and stay in a NYC library. They burn books to keep each other warm. They stick together and make it through! If your going to visit the movie rental store for your Saturday night, The Day After Tommarrow is a movie <more>
you'll want to watch all that weekend, and throughout the week!
Personally I thought this movie was terrific and very entertaining. I have also read the book and both of them had me waiting for more. The point of the movie, if you may not have noticed, was global warming. The polar ice caps were melting, yes, and caused the ocean currents to change direction and speed. As a result, New York and many other places around the world were in danger. If you could not see that then of course you didn't like the movie. True, the ending left you at a bit of bewilderment, but overall the movie is great. What good is it to watch a movie and worry about how this <more>
could never happen or how this was messed up? Think about it. It's for entertainment. Take my word for it and go see this movie. I give it a 9 out of 10.
Oh! The Weather Outside Is Frightful... (by BaronBl00d)
I really enjoyed this film by director Roland Emmerich a great deal. It is a fast-paced, exciting, suspenseful film filled with wonderful images, great CGI effects, plausible acting, and even a coherent script. How realistic is it? I hope not at all, but the director made the film so that it seems very real and like something that MIGHT happen. The story revolves around some major climatic shifts that cause the entire Northern hemisphere to become Artic tundra. New York City is devastated as are other major cities all over Europe. Dennis Quaid gives a good performance as a climatologist that <more>
predicted some of these events. We see things through his perspective and that of his son for much of the movie. The acting in general is good in this film. I particularly liked Ian Holm's role as the British meteorologist stuck in the middle of nowhere while these changes advanced. Much of the credit for the film's success must go to Emmerich. This is easily one of his best films. He keeps his viewer on the edge of his/her seat through the entire film. Action is the film's primary objective, but Emmerich also uses a lot of humanity in what his character's motivations are, and I for one, enjoyed seeing that side of humanity rather than what I probably would see under similar circumstances. As a previous viewer noted, this is a great popcorn movie!
Ridiculous Story, But Fun To Watch (by ccthemovieman-1)
I was leery of a heavy propaganda piece on "global warming," but I still saw this and found that, yeah that's what it was but it was really more of just a straight adventure story than anything else.....and not a bad one, at that. The first 50 minutes of this two-hour film have the "fun parts" where the special-effects dominate. We see all kinds of radical weather disasters that are extremely dramatic and entertaining to watch, even if they don't make a bit of sense.After the blizzard and sub-zero, unlivable weather conditions arrive the movie settles down to a <more>
young romance and survival story with Jake Gyllenhaal, Emily Rossum and other people trapped in a library in New York City and Jake's father, played by Dennis Quaid, walking all the way from Philadelphia to rescue him. Yes, it's very, very far-fetched - the whole thing - but it's a fun adventure story with nice people. It's especially refreshing to see Hollywood portray a father as being so loving and selfless. The romance wasn't overdone and the young people were not profane and/or annoying, as so often is the case.Except for the over-exaggerated and extremely erroneous scare tactics of this movie, and a ridiculous portrayal of the Vice Preseint of the United States, the movie works strictly as an entertaining fantasy-adventure story.
The Good, the Bad and the Ugly (by InterpolStella)
The Good; The special effects duh. Min blowing and bigger than Elvis. Whole lot of fun and if it wasn't for them this movie would be crap er . Characters have a whole lot of potential if you completely ignore Dennis Quaid and there are some humorous moments in there. It's visually engaging and not too taxing on the ole noggin. I enjoyed the ending especially the fact that the so called first world now rely on the third world. So petty much an entertaining film HOWEVER.......The Bad; Great plot, story lines, sh*t* script. I mean REALLY! With some of the lines in that film I would sit <more>
there and just *cringe*. I understand that Emmerich or whoever worked on the script had less money to spend on writers and obviously more to spend on CGI but Oh.My.God! There also seems to be an obsession with the word 'cataclysmic'in this film again blame humiliating script. I mean why not try OTHER WORDS but I suppose the usage of the word cataclysmic over and over again was to attempt to make the plot 'seem' smarter. Somehow they failed that. But wait there's more crap...the science! Or lack thereof! What the hell are they talking about?! Some serious research should have been done into this and then maybe we wouldn't all be dying in the cinema aisles of shame.Plus the characters aren't given enough of a chance to develop and you get the feeling that Sam Hall doesn't really care for his mother and there is no explanation for why Jack Hall's character doesn't freeze to death. Does he only live through his magical powers as a lacklustre climatologist?The Ugly; I guess the wolves?.....oh no Dennis Quaid's facial expressions. He has all of three expressions; annoyed, really annoyed and constipated. All in all it's good to watch if you ignore the stale script and even staler acting. Some characters are interesting but of course since the world of Roland Emmerich revolves around the Hall family we don't find out much about the other folk in the film like the billions that died instead there is more attention paid again to the Hall family and extra girl played by Rossum. God forbid Emmy Rossum should get septicaemia and almost die screw those others out there literally freezing to death and let's just focus on her and her weird American accent. *Sigh* Despite this there ARE some memorable moments and it has truly excellent CGI. I would still recommend watching it because, despite it's many failings it *is* an entertaining movie. I gave it a rating of 8 purely because of Jake Gyllenhaal and the CGI. There I've said it. Watch it with suspended disbelief or when drunk. That way you can ignore certain Rhode Island wide plot holes. Enjoy.
