"Trite" really isn't doing justice to the degree to which [the film] has not a single thought, character, or line of dialogue that hadn't been run into the ground by the beginning of the '80s.

Some cool special effects...that's about it.

This is a popcorn film with a fact based concept, and that's all it is...

The ecological theme is not advanced with any subtlety, but so what? The film works with the broad brushstrokes appropriate to a popular entertainment.

High-strung, melodramatic hogwash steeped in a measure of scientific fact. Emmerich takes it as seriously as he can and his movie, as a result, delivers more provocative fun than you might expect.

Don't even get me started on the hilarity of the scene where a bunch of people outrun a blast of freezing air and close the doors on it.

this is one film viewers might want to put off until some time long, long after the day after tomorrow.

Like any other Emmerich movie, this one is loaded with humor, mostly unintentional.

In case you missed the memo, it's official: God hates us.

Preposterous, slow, and unimaginative.

This is the movie equivalent of trying to get someone to stop smoking by saying, 'Don't smoke, or you'll die instantly within 24 hours!'

L'intérêt envers l'orgie d'effets spéciaux baisse rapidement alors que rien d'autre dans ce film ne peut valoir le coût ou la peine d'être vu..

What is included on the DVD is mediocre, but it's what's not included that really hurts this release.

They should be ashamed of themselves by squandering so much money on such a putrid piece of work.

The patched-together human side of the story doesn't stand a chance against the special effects, which are frequently fun to look at.

Beyond the often stunning visuals, I found most of the movie boring, worried it wasn't going to end until at least the day after tomorrow.

Many of the clichés in this movie predate the last Ice Age.

A shambles of dud writing and dramatic inconsequence which left me determined to double my consumption of fossil fuels.

'Emmerich es un cineasta que tiene estupendos momentos de entretenimiento a pesar de que a media película todo se vaya a la borda.'
| Original Score: 2.5/4

Emmerich's reign at the top of the mega-movie empire doesn't show any signs of dissipating with this unmissable treat.
