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? 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. I watched it everyday until they changed to iRobot and that became my next bed rest movie. I do like the fact that they had the foresight to have Antarctic weather gear handy for just these occasions. Ohhh, and what was the point of Quaid walking all the way from D. . 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. And they have these tents that apparently have magical warming powers because once in the tents they're able to take off their gloves and hats and not be cold at all! 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! » Do you like a good old-fashioned action-packed Summer movie with a good story and scientific accuracy?

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. I give this movie a 9 based on exactly what I expected of it.
I was expecting a full 2 hours of action and chaos, but they got all that out of the way and the rest of the movie focuses on the characters and their attempts to survive. What else can you do with a movie this ridiculous? Getting a bit tired of Quaid's same old predictable facial expressions across all his movies--not that great an actor--but oh well, the rest is worth it; and in the end, Dennis Quaid seems like a likeable enough kind of guy that I won't refuse to watch his films. 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?! I definitely recommend this movie. The science isn't exactly real, and the wolves are a weird plot addition but still enjoyable.

This is easily one of his best films. I also found it amazing that any lines of communications were not really affected, including the under freezing water pay phone.

However, the movie is clearly about many different storm weather changing, and no story plot; that's pretty much it. Numerous tornadoes pummeling a West Coast city and there are actually people flying in helicopters to get a closer look. A wide variety of dramatic scenes among different age groups, cultural groups and geographic settings. Meanwhile, his son Sam is with friends in New York City to attend an event. The church and school have since moved.

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.

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. I really like this movie as I have watched it several times. Thankfully, the movie didn't get quite that extreme. 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?
