"Great movie!"
4 stars"

The latest Roland Emmerich disaster movie deals with the unlikely question: What if we are on the brink of a new ice age?

One of the main characters, Jack Hall (Dennis Quaid) is a climatologist who everyone thinks is the boy calling wolf. Everyone that is, except Professor Rapson (Ian Holm) a colleague based in Scotland, who helps confirm Jacks fears are more than real, they are hugely underestimated.

But as Jack is trying to warm the Vice President, his teenage son Sam (Jake Gyllenhall) is on his way to New York, officially to compete in a High School academic competition. But really he’s there because he likes a cute girl who’s on the team.

Whilst they are in New York, a huge storm system appears, and the movie really kicks in.

Special effects have come along way, and passionate directors are realizing that effects have to be used to make us believe what we are seeing. And even though this movie deals with the unbelievable, you find your self-believing that everything is real, and we start to enjoy the experience of watching the world change in front of our eyes.

But special effect, no matter how believable they are, are nothing without a story line, and The Day After Tomorrow has the perfect modern day disaster flick story line: Jack, the father who was never there, promises Sam that he will come and rescue him.

Fortunately being a climatologist, Jack has the experience and equipment to trek across the USA through the storm of the millennium. But no amount of experience ever saves a movie like this from the clichés: there has to be sacrifice, there has to be humour, and there has to be love.

And of course, no blockbuster disaster movie would be complete without a cheesy ending.

This story about a futuristic look at the end days is a good one. A host of good cast and a well scripted film – very dramatic!!

Description

In Independence Day Roland Emmerich brought you the near destruction of the earth by aliens. Now, in THE DAY AFTER TOMORROW the enemy is an even more devastating force: nature itself. In this special-effects packed, highly anticipated event motion picture, an abrupt climate change has cataclysmic consequences for the entire planet. Climatologist Jack Hall (Dennis Quaid) predicted the coming of another ice age, but never expected it to happen during his lifetime. A sudden and violent shift in global weather causes extreme elements to wreak havoc in every corner of the earth; floods, hail, tornados and temperatures of a magnitude never seen before threaten the planet. Jack has to quickly convince the President of the United States to evacuate the country in order to save millions that are in danger, including his son Sam (Jake Gyllenhaal). When Sam is marooned in a sub-zero New York City, Jack must make a perilous trek against the clock to save his son...
