    Everybody is good at one thing, they say; for Emmerich, it's destruction.
  2. The spectacle, which is colossal and at times staggering to behold, begins within two minutes of the fade-in and keeps coming until the finish. I thought I'd seen it all. I hadn't.

    Emmerich’s sense of irony has rarely been so pointed, and The Day After Tomorrow, for all its obvious cataclysmic set-pieces and stock characterizations, is nothing if not timely.
  4. Really bad movies can be fun, and the dialogue here often attains a level of joyful inanity.
  5. 50
    What most hurts The Day After Tomorrow is its unfortunate, lecturing tone.
  6. The story is too silly, too woefully underwritten, to stake a claim on seriousness.
  7. 25
    Don't ask whether or not you should take The Day After Tomorrow seriously. Don't take it at all.

    Not only is this movie an edge-of-your-seat thriller, it also spreads the message of the threat of global warming clearly.

This made the intense scenes with the snow and the rain quite entertaining, but it was pretty emotionally intense as well. It's not a perfect film, but I enjoyed it when I was younger and I enjoyed it now. It still delivers brilliantly, and Jake Gyllenhaal is still as clever and gorgeous as usual. Expand

    It was a really good movie it kept me awake through the night. I agree what Steve P. said it's a B movie.

    Its just your regular apocalypse movie with the same old story. But what an amazing visual dazzle.

I can suspect where the movie wants itself headed to, but fails to execute in action. Expand

    If the world were indeed to end tomorrow I would die happy knowing the people who wrote this tripe went with it.
