The Day After Tomorrow

Summary:

What if we are on the brink of a new Ice Age? This is the question that haunts climatologic Jack Hall. Hall’s research indicates that global warming could trigger an abrupt and catastrophic shift in the planet’s climate. While Jack warns the White House of the impending climate shift, his 17 year-old son Sam finds himself trapped in New York City where he and some friends have been competing in a high school academic competition.

Quick Takes

From the Watercooler:

People may scoff at this movie’s absurdity. And, yes, the plot’s not even close to being scientifically plausible — a new ice age descends in 72 hours, rather than centuries — but The Day After Tomorrow enlivens a topic that can be drier than a drought while memorably illustrating the interconnectedness of our planet’s eco-systems and societies. — Andrew Belonsky Read More

From Rex Reed at Observer:

For all of its dire premonitions, foreshadowings of horror and easy targets for Jay Leno jokes, The Day After Tomorrow is eye-poppingly awesome and wonderfully entertaining. Full Review
