We saw this movie in the theater and i have to agree with Roger Ebert(his review) on this yet we liked the message of this movie to think seriously about these changes taking place in our environment and weather and now having experienced Hurricane Sandy and living in NYC i thought about this movie, it seems this movie is becoming more about reality than fantasy.

This film is action packed, and viewers feel the drama of a glacier meltdown.As Sela Ward and Dennis Quaid try to save the planet from a freeze,people flock to warmer Mexican temperatures.I love such scenes, where we see Lady Liberty sink and people get stuck in the library.The World seems to be topsy turvy,and the battle is fun to watch.Bravo, Quaid and Ward !

Loved this movie! Very touching when Dennis Quaid (the Father) and Jake Gyllenhaal (the Son) eventually find each other. Very intertaining!

Pretty good movie...but a bit tiring toward the end, with you just wanting it to be over already...too tense. Great special effects that were a bit unsettling, because they seemed so real...

The New York Times
The glacierization of half of the world's inhabited land is contemplated with barely a hint of horror. In fact, it looks kind of cool. Full Review
David Edelstein
When it comes to weaving personal stories in and out of the special-effects set pieces, the director has the most colossal antitalent since Ed Wood Jr. Full Review
James Berardinelli
The Day After Tomorrow is filled with bad dialogue, stock peril situations, and sketchy character development, but it's a big enough spectacle that those things don't completely derail the film's capacity to be enjoyed. Full Review
Joe Morgenstern
Wall Street Journal
Seldom has grandeur struggled so mightily, and fruitlessly, with rampant goofiness. Full Review
Keith Phipps
The Onion (A.V. Club)
Emmerich now directs entirely in watered-down Spielbergisms, and his storytelling skills, never strong, have gone slack. His talent for stretching a concept that can be described in 10 seconds into a feature-length movie, on the other hand, remains impressive. Full Review
