The Day After Tomorrow

Viewed: 26 May 2005
Directed by: Roland Emmerich

The beginning rocked. Crazy weather everywhere, reporters getting swept away with rooftops, giant hail destroying Tokyo, Dick Cheney denying that anything is really happening. Great. The movie takes a real dive when Dennis Quad decides to travel to Manhattan to save Donnie Darko and it starts to take itself seriously. The strong points are the effects (which except for the wolfs, don’t look like CGI) and the political satire (When Latin American was relived of its debt, the theatre clapped). It could have done without most, if not all, of the personal stories. The Day After Tomorrow starts with a Tsunami and then ends with just drivel.
