Roland Emmerich continues to captivate with his apocalyptic-ideals. Now with this film he is able to express his vision with more visual highlights than before. From a torn-Hollywood sign to New York City in a ice-bounded trap, the film's effects really do make up for it's dull s...

The Day After Tomorrow is directed by Roland Emmerich who has always made films that are more interested in destruction and effects than brains or even remotely coherent plot.
Once again Emmerich sacrifices any logic or any possibly interesting ideas that this film could have ha...

The Day after Tomorrow is better then you might expect. This time round Roland Emmerich's big scale effects that always draw in a crowd are worth their agressiveness this time round. Were talking about an apocalyptic disaster film here and it's the genre that Emmerich suits. Alth...

Roland Emmerich has had a checkered career. I thought his films Independence Day and The Patriot were great films, and among his best. After all, he's not that great a director. Godzilla was crap, 10,000 BC was also crap and so was 2012. However if I'd have to pick a third film ...

The effects in this film were out of this world! Anything with Jake Gyllenhaal gets my heart racing though, probably why I gave this another star. Good film, but not great.
