Product Description

Mega-budget, special-effects packed action adventure sci-fi epic directed by Roland Emmerich (Independence Day, Stargate), in which global warming and the greenhouse effect have given rise to abrupt climate change - with cataclysmic consequences for the entire planet. Dennis Quaid stars as Professor Adrian Hall, a paleoclimatologist who is fighting to save the world from a second ice age and all the natural disasters that herald it: floods, hurricanes, earthquakes and tornadoes to name but a few. But first, Hall must complete a more personal mission: his son Sam (Jake Gyllenhaal) is stranded in New York City where he was taking part in a school competition when the catastrophe began. As well as facing a perpetual onslaught of natural catastrophes, Hall must fight his way through the mass of humanity fleeing south into warmer climes... but can he reach his son in time to save him?

From Amazon.co.uk

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 emphasises 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 pummelled 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

I first saw this film at the cinema when released and again on 'dvd' when it became available.
Although much of the story-line centres on a fathers trek to save son, this in my opinion wasn't the films strength, what was of course the awesome and simply amazing special effects, with equally impressive surround sound (you almost feel as though you are there)
So when this became available on Blu-ray, i decided this was going to be a great addition to my blu-ray collection, having watched it my anticipation was more than justified, the blu-ray transfer was a joy to watch, with the surround sound coupled with the obvious impact of the special effects, it was more than equall to the cinema experience..
With a great performance from 'Dennis Quaid' and 'Jake Gyllenhaal' the movie remains one of my all-time favourites, mainly due
to it's visual content. (re-watch it every now and then)

Watching this film on blu-ray shows you why it is worthwhile investing in a blu-ray system. The sound and the picture are absolutely stunning in every respect.

I loved "The Day After Tomorrow" - that rare beast - a blockbuster movie with groundbreaking special effects wrapped around a half decent story - all carried by actors you like and with the chops to give the whole shebang a bit of gravitas. The BLU RAY of it was in our home pronto once the format appeared.

But British fans should be aware that the ‘US’ edition of the BLU RAY on 20th Century Fox is REGION A LOCKED - so it won't play on our machines unless they're chipped to be 'all regions' which most aren't.

Buy the UK version instead - it's very cheap now - a proper looker on the Format - and a blizzard of jaw dropping scenes that will linger in the memory…

Sure the science is on the ropey side, it is a film though not a scientific theory, let it stand as a film and you get a great fim.

This really is a must for any fan of disaster movies, the effects are great and the story is fine too. This is another movie which really deserves Blu-Ray, the level of detail that you get in this over the DVD really shows the format off to its best. From the vistas of Antarctica in the opening shots to the freezing of buildings in New York with the windows shattering in fantastic detail and teh shots of Earth from the space station.

If you want something that is going to teach you about global warming, go and find a documentary, if however you want an entertaining film then buy this film, it really does not fail to deliver.

Format: Blu-ray
`The Day After Tomorrow' starring Dennis Quaid as and Jake Gyllenhaal is a fantastic movie that really is the kind of film that made me want a Blu Ray player in the first place - the amazing specials effects like the tornados, the floods and natural destruction of New York and Los Angeles has never looked so good!

The storyline is fairly basic with an unexpected and rapid ice age hitting the Earth and although it is very unbelievable with a lot of flaws and plot-holes it is still an extremely enjoyable and visually stunning film that I highly recommend seeing on Blu Ray. The acting is what you'd expect from a Hollywood summer blockbuster - good but would never win any awards, the action is very fast paced for the first half but does slow down considerably in the last half an hour or so, the special effects are stunning - some of the best I've ever seen in a film, and the whole film is just a good fun and well worth checking out. Highly recommended!

Imported from the states - I do like this movie although I know there have been alot of end of the world type movies, this one is one of my fav's.

HD Picture 5/5
HD Sound 5/5
Extras 0/5

A definate step up for the DVD version, would recommend this as its a great transfer, shame that Fox doesnt seem to be doing any extras on any of their Blu Ray disc's which does let the side considering the DVD has plenty!

Let's be honest, you don't watch an 'end of the world' movie for the tight plot, incredible script and Academy Award winning acting. You watch it for special effects and to turn your brain off. Thankfully, this hits all the right spots but at the same time lacks that little spark. The movie has some horrible dialogue, a flimsy plot to pull together the set pieces and what can only be described as a flawed story, but the special effects are great and the movie is exactly what it says on the tin... fun! If you're not a fan of natural disaster movies stay clear, but if you enjoy them then definately give this one a spin. 3.5/5
