In terms of science, The Day After Tomorrow is accurate. We no longer call global warming global warming, because our polar ice caps are what allow most of our heat to come, and our Earth has ways of generating heat through the ocean current,s and they are being disrupted more and more every year. The more carbon we release into the air, the worse it gets. We need to reduce our emissions by around a factor of 4/5 by 2050, r else we'll be in a new ice age after the polar caps melt. This movie answers the question: What if it happened today? Out of nowhere, climatologists see a huge increase in temperature everywhere. One of the climatologists that works for the government, Jack Hall, has a son who's on a field trip in New York City while he's in Washington, D.C. A huge storm comes out of nowhere worldwide, from a hail of well…hails the size of bowling balls raining in Japan to a crack the size of Rhode Island in the North Pole to a huge flood in New York City…wow. Jack decides to go outside after it gets cold enough to walk and they journey across the frozen U.S. to try to rescue Sam and his friends as they bundle up in the cold. Awww.
You know something? I think I'm going to die when I'm in my fifties. That's the time when this is supposed to happen if we keep on polluting. I may sound like I don't have a heart, but I wish that a few billion people would just leave the planet so that we can go back to health. When I first saw this movie, I thought it was going to be some documentary after finding out it's title. Boy, was I wrong. The special effects are so realistic, you may shiver a bit in your seat. Another good element goes to show how it indicates that our environment is the most important thing. We're in debt already.
The Day After Tomorrow is medicine in this situation, however it isn't committed to tasting like it, also being a solid action movie with some extremely close calls. You watch the opening scene with a dramatic tune and a big scope of melted ice blocks and you know you're in for a treat.
