Where will I be? Somewhere warm inside and high up!,
This review is from: The Day After Tomorrow - Two Disc Edition [DVD]  (DVD)
When I went to see 'The Day After Tomorrow' I wasn't really expecting much, as I couldn't see how a weather disaster movie could have much of a storyline. To tell the truth, I only really went to see the lovely, brooding Jake Gyllenhaal!
I was very impressed and I really enjoyed the film. The special effects were amazing and having been to New York in april it was astonishing to see the city under water. There were some really tense, edge-of-your-seat moments and also some suprising sublty funny lines. Jake was, of course, wonderful but I am biased when it comes to tall, dark, hansome guys doing the hero thing!
Although it is the Hollywood take on the global warming issue and its consequences, the movie does make you think. The day after I saw it, there was a thunder storm with hail stones and I was, to say the least, slightly scared that the world was coming to an end!
So, take this movie for what it is. An amazing spectacle that will make you think the next time you drive instead of walk, and which has some eye candy to boot! Oh, and don't expect too much from the plot!
