In 2004, watching downtown skyscrapers collapse...should cause more queasiness than the filmmakers intend, even if the buildings are located in Los Angeles.

Even the names of the characters are weak and unoriginal.

...the visual highlights are unable to stand on their own; they get buried behind a screen of shoddy characterizations, useless subplots and cheesy ploys for tension.

It's the end of the world and it looks just fine.

It's like Deep Impact as made by Michael Moore, and that's a good thing, or a good enough thing.

Funnier than anything since Battlefield Earth.

Each set piece is good, clean apocalyptic fun, and that's what I paid to see.

The movie settles into a generic soap opera broken up with enough fancy effects shots to cut a nifty trailer.

The Bush and Cheney look-a-likes took a pretty good beating for being the heads of the evil administration that brought on all the trouble.

amazing imagery, moody score, ludicrous science, mentally challenged dialogue and eyeball-scratching acting

Let's put it this way: They won't be giving Roland Emmerich an honorary doctorate in meteorology.

...the film's stars seem to be slightly out of phase with the action.

If Emmerich's science doesn't compute, his blizzard of special effects should at least get you fired up.

This is why Liberals are losing the environment debate

The story is compelling and plausible enough for non-experts. Much like a Jerry Bruckheimer disaster film: lots of CGI to create its images of colossal destruction.

... the situations are just so ludicrous that it really detracts from the quality of the special effects ...

Puts me in mind of a great truism: "Instant gratification isn't fast enough." For Emmerich, neither is nature.

...there's not enough diversion to keep one's mind from fixating on some of the stupider plot points.

Colossal, cheesy, and meaningless.

"The Day after Tomorrow is junk, but it's not a rip-off. Emmerich sincerely wants to entertain you, which is more than you can say for most of his Hollywood peers."
