    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.

    I don't care what the others say, but this movie is good.

    This is not just some ordinary disaster movie. For those who pick out the little problems like the special effects, you are plainly: DUMB. This is not just some ordinary disaster movie. For those who pick out the little problems like the special effects, you are plainly: DUMB. Something similar to this will happen sometime in the future, when people are still on Earth, and at that time, even the special effects in the movie wouldn't be able to compare to the force of Mother Nature. Just wait and see.. or maybe let your grandchildren see, and pay the price for your consequences. Expand

    This film is good - I like the characters but most of all I found the climate change plot fascinating. This made the intense scenes with theThis film is good - I like the characters but most of all I found the climate change plot fascinating. 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.

    Evocative and restrained musical score, stunning visualizations and immersing sound effects are featured as people struggle to survive in the Evocative and restrained musical score, stunning visualizations and immersing sound effects are featured as people struggle to survive in the shell of a city subjected to a natural catastrophe. Actually a striking movie if initially viewed following Hurricane Katrina, a perspective not available when the movie was released. Too many Hollywood cliffhanger elements, improbable weather events and environmentalist dogma preclude eligibility as an intelligent film. The enviros cover all their bases by claiming global warming can bring another ice age. Come on you phonies, do you understand how this planet works or not? However, I do believe that nature bats last, and a lot of the social interaction and political responses as the characters struggle to survive resemble today's news coverage and is truly touching.

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