Poor attempt at making a movie with a message

Wow, I can't believe I stayed up to watch this movie on HBO. It's such a disappointment.

The only thing that is worth seeing in this movie is the special effects, that is, the effects for tornadoes -- the snowstorm special effects are typical fake snow and ice for the most part. And why were the wolves that escaped from the NYC Zoo CGI characters? Why didn't they just edit together footage of actual wolves with quick shots of CGI animals?

The acting is pretty bad, thanks to the weak script. Although the scientific lingo sounds good, none of the actors can make any of it realistic. One particularly poor performance is from the actor who plays the "Vice-President". He was able to make it hard to believe that somebody that idiotic and confrontational would be able to get elected to t...

The Day After Tomorrow

I've loved disaster films ever since I fell in love with movies. It all started with "Twister" and "Daylight." I don't know why a lot of people didn't like this movie. Were they looking for some kind of character development or a solid storyline? If so, why? It's a disaster film. People die; it's plain and simple. And if they're not content by the body count at the end of the movie, then they shouldn't have decided to watch it in the first place. A lot of people are not sensible, I suppose. Anyway, this movie blew me away, not because of its story, but because of the issue it tackled and its first-rate special effects. Was the movie scientifically accurate? Maybe not. But when I walk into a movie that advertises death, I don't look for accuracy. I look for death and people's desperation t...

A lot of fun to watch, underrated

I love this film. First off, I have to say that I am a big fan of apocalyptic movies. Second, the idea behind the movie, though it is way over the top in terms of a timeline, is plausible. Third, the acting, particularly of Jake Gyllenhaal, is good. Finally, the action and special effects (which is what makes an end of the world movie come together) are fantastic.

I enjoy watching the movie but I do feel there are a couple of scenes that I could have done with out. One of those scenes involves crazy starving wolves who get loose and attack the children on a giant fishing boat that drifts into New York City. There is also some unnecessary comic relief that is typical in most Hollywood "blockbuster" movies.

Still, I find this movie enjoyable throughout. The simple formula of thrills...
