What of the tent that was able to withstand the chill but not the Empire State building? The cliches are all present and correct: the politicians, the upright scientists, the sacrifice, the daring rescues and so on. If you want to see a movie that makes you believe that what's happening is real, watch this. It's fair to say that if you are looking for more than a basic script then you will be looking in the wrong place here. The only ones who had communications losses were, of course, the main characters. I know they were in a library but you think they could have possibly tried to burn all the wooden tables and chairs around them? Just a shame that the film message is delivered with all the subtlety that Segal showed when he did something similar in his environmental action film On Deadly Ground. Meanwhile, his son Sam is with friends in New York to attend an event. There they discover that it has been raining non-stop for the past 3 days, and after a series of weather-related disasters begin to occur over the world, everybody realizes the world is entering a new Ice Age and the world population begins trying to evacuate to the warmer climates of the south.
Why would I be surprised by that? Action is the film's primary objective, but Emmerich also uses a lot of humanity in what his character's motivations are, and I for one, enjoyed seeing that side of humanity rather than what I probably would see under similar circumstances. The acting in general is good in this film. I like Quaid and he is a good lead here, he gets the good scientific stuff and only is lumbered with the rather silly notion of walking to New York from Washington. The film tries to deliver an environmental message but in a way this film will not help the environmental movement because it is too exaggerated to be taken seriously like the idea of Celtic and Man Utd reaching the Champions League final during this season? There they discover that it has been raining non-stop for the past 3 days, and after a series of weather-related disasters begin to occur over the world, everybody realizes the world is entering a new Ice Age and the world population begins trying to evacuate to the warmer climates of the south. The fact that the movie begins with the Twentieth Century Fox logo under stormy skies doesn't make it any more significant. I particularly liked Ian Holm's role as the British meteorologist stuck in the middle of nowhere while these changes advanced. However after the sheer global terror is pretty much finished we suddenly become much more small scale and the film looses much of it's impact and it's pace.
Dennis Quaid gives a good performance as a climatologist that predicted some of these events. All this film does is to provide spectacle and moments of dramatic action if you want to think about it then you will only hurt your enjoyment of the action. As Paleoclimatologist named Jack Hall is in Antartica, he discovers that a huge ice sheet has sheared off. Welsh is good even if he was cast for his similarity to Dick Cheney, Holm adds a small bit of dignity in his role as well as being supported by the very fine actor Lester in a minor role. In that regard the film carries all the usual problems that the genre carries but happily benefits from the fact that the effects are much better than 1970's movies could manage. You go for the special effects.
The only other movie I've seen that does that is Lord of the Rings. Much of the credit for the film's success must go to Emmerich. If you don't care then why should they? Hail stones the size of footballs decimate cities, typhoons destroy Los Angeles and New York becomes flooded. As the big freeze crosses the northern hemisphere, a small group of survivors try to fend off the cold as the world prepares for a dramatic change in the world order. The rest of the cast are fairly mixed but, as with the genre, they are just filled even if some are good. This film may be a modern blockbuster but in almost everyway it is a 1970's disaster movie where an event happens after some build up and we then spend the rest of the film watching the survivors trying to, well, survive. After years of warning about global warning, Jack Hall is horrified to find all his predictions coming true much faster than he could have imagined.
Overall the first hour of this film is good on a blockbuster level, but it blows it's wad too early don't ya hate it when that happens?! This is easily one of his best films. Buildings freezing and crumbling yet the people outside don't seem to be affected so much. After years of increases in the greenhouse effect, havoc is wreaked globally in the form of catastrophic hurricanes, tornadoes, tidal waves, floods and the beginning of a new Ice Age. I also found it amazing that any lines of communications were not really affected, including the under freezing water pay phone. Jack makes a daring attempt to rescue his son and his friends who are stuck in New York and who have managed to survive not only a massive wave but also freezing cold temperatures that could possibly kill them.
This movie is so bad from the beginning. Jack makes a daring attempt to rescue his son and his friends who are stuck in New York and who have managed to survive not only a massive wave but also freezing cold temperatures that could possibly kill them. Numerous tornadoes pummeling a West Coast city and there are actually people flying in helicopters to get a closer look.

I give this movie a 9 based on exactly what I expected of it. The acting was horrific, the directing was terrible, the script was unbelievably bad and the special effects were anything but special. Paleoclimatologist, Jack Hall tries to warn the world while also shepherding to safety his son, trapped in New York after the city is overwhelmed by the start of the new big freeze. If all you care about is plot, there are better choices. Copyright © 2017 by Movisubmalay. Meanwhile, his son Sam is with friends in New York to attend an event.
I do like the fact that they had the foresight to have Antarctic weather gear handy for just these occasions. . For this reason the first hour is great it has dramatic pace, is involving and looks fantastic even if we have seen it before in different variations how many times has New York been destroyed now? And I can honestly say these are some of the best special effects I've ever seen in my life. Call your local Army Navy store. The script doesn't really create characters either and it means we don't care that much about what happens to them in the final hour countless millions are dead for goodness sake! It's par for the course and you should not watch this if you know these aspects will annoy you.
As a previous viewer noted, this is a great popcorn movie! New York City is devastated as are other major cities all over Europe. So on that level, it works; the music by Harald Kloser and Thomas Wanker is also a bonus, being more restrained and serious in its support than is usually the way with Emmerich movies. But what he does not know is that this event will trigger a massive climate shift that will affect the world population. The dialogue in the first hour is nicely gruff and scientific and very genre but the second hour is more human and the lines aren't suited for that not even in the hands of an impressive number of good actors. As it is, it's an average film but one that is noisy and spectacular enough to pass muster in the summer blockbuster stakes. Generally I enjoyed the film because I was just expecting a big noisy movie to pass a few hours bad script, no characters and lots of cliches? But what he does not know is that this event will trigger a massive climate shift that will affect the world population.
And then there's the script - it has a whole load of characters but doesn't do much with any of them. Faces like Sanders, Mihok and a few others don't really matter as they are merely victims waiting for their turn to be used for dramatic effect. The folks who actually like this movie are the reason Hollywood makes very few quality movies any more. We see things through his perspective and that of his son for much of the movie. This movie blends them seamlessly.
