The Day After Tomorrow

Critics Consensus

The Day After Tomorrow is a ludicrous popcorn thriller filled with clunky dialogue, but spectacular visuals save it from being a total disaster.

Movie Info

After climatologist Jack Hall (Dennis Quaid) is largely ignored by U.N. officials when presenting his environmental concerns, his research proves true when an enormous "superstorm" develops, setting off catastrophic natural disasters throughout the world. Trying to get to his son, Sam (Jake Gyllenhaal), who is trapped in New York with his friend Laura (Emmy Rossum) and others, Jack and his crew must travel by foot from Philadelphia, braving the elements, to get to Sam before it's too late.

Audience Reviews for The Day After Tomorrow

    It's too simple. Disaster movies are as bad as the disasters start striking.

    An extremely leftist piece of environmental propaganda, The Day After Tomorrow sacrifices character and plot in favor of a political message. However, given that the film's premise is taken from a book co-authored by paranormal radio talk show host Art Bell, the "science" is suspect at best. And the piss-poor script doesn't help any, as the characters are one-dimensional and the plot is ridiculous. Additionally, leads Dennis Quaid and Jake Gyllenhaal are horribly miscast and have no charisma. Yet the special effects are quite impressive, and the disaster sequences are visually stunning. But unfortunately, The Day After Tomorrow is more concerned with politics than good storytelling...and it shows.

    Nice special effect but not really a good story or good acting.

    As a multi-disaster movie it's pretty effective and suprisingly scary, but there's not much a coherent story. The wolf packs, the romance, and the illegal immigrant segments of the plot were not needed.
