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

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?

5.0 out of 5 stars Clear picture and sound, a bit low on extras 27 Jun 2009
By A. Rehm
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
The audio and video quality of this Blu-ray disc is excellent, DTS-HD sound, very crisp picture under 1080p.

The only downside of this disc are the extras - The DVD version has a nice set of extras and interviews, whereas the Blu-ray version has only an absolute minimum of extras. Regardless, this is a brilliant Blu-ray for this price.

4.0 out of 5 stars Perfect for Blu Ray 22 April 2009
`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!

3.0 out of 5 stars Day After Tomorrow, Blu-Ray 28 April 2009
`The Day After Tomorrow' is one of those films that is hugely flawed, has dubious science and yet is extremely entertaining. Following what would happen in the face of rapid ice age this film follows one mans attempt to get his scientific research listened to by those in charge, as well as his sons fight for survival in storm stricken New York. The acting is pretty good, the direction is great, the special effects are very impressive and overall this makes for a top apocalyptic film with a modern theme. Whilst the themes of climate change are not to be ignored, the catastrophic nature of the scenario depicted wouldn't be as extreme or rapid and yet if you put this aside this makes for engrossing and entertaining viewing and is worth a watch.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Movie , Great Transfer 15 Jan 2008
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!

The Day After Tomorrow is everything you'd expect from the director of Independence Day; spectacular special effects, a beautiful cast who manage to look immaculately groomed throughout - despite their lives being turned upside down - and a good stack of dramatic one-liners. In a surprise twist to the trend of big-budget action films depicting America as the good guy however, the writers should be praised for the alternative stance they take. The film is often thought-provoking in this way, and the political statement it makes regarding important issues allows it to stand out from the deluge of mediocre blockbusters of the same genre.
The story follows Jack Hall (Dennis Quaid) as a government climatologist who, when he learns of the powerful storm forming a path of destruction across the world, treks through the killer conditions to find his estranged son Sam (Jake Gyllenhaal). Sam, however, has found safety a long with a group of friends and fellow citizens, in the New York Public Library. As the storm closes in around the terrified crowd, they attempt to salvage food, warmth and - cheesy American film as it is - hope. The thing that most surprised me about the film is that it was often very funny. There are numerous memorable lines, and a clever use of ironic humour.
The special effects are, of course, outstanding. Then again, you'd expect nothing less from a film of this capacity. In particular, the birds eye view of New York City conveys the lengths the art department have gone to to create an authentic look. It is interesting to note that director Roland Emmerich (who also directed Godzilla) makes a point of emphasising the carelessness of the world's inhabitants, and the destructive effects their pollution is having upon the planet.

4.0 out of 5 stars 'A VISUAL SPECTACLE TO BEHOLD' 24 May 2014
By rbmusicman TOP 500 REVIEWER
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)
