Same Structure As Independence DayBy Goldenboots (53 reviews) from East Grinstead, England , 09 Jun 2004
[Highly rated reviewer]This was very similar in structure to his previous blockbuster Independence Day. As in that film, all the main characters were introduced in episodic form in the first half hour, then the catastrophe happened, then came the anti climatically end play. The first half of the film when the global warming and the new ice age started were of a high standard, the second half (The rescue) pretty mundane and predictable. OK for a summer blockbuster, but after all the hype, I had expected something better.

Customer ReviewBy a customer from UK , 23 Jun 2008Not overly impressed, the film takes on the subject of global disasters, following the melting of the polar cap. Some good special effects and a standard Hollywood script ~ "half of the USA wiped out, but don't worry, the good guys survive!" If you have something better to do, I would suggest you do it, that said if you have a spare hour and a half, you could find worse movies.
Customer ReviewBy a customer from UK , 23 Jun 2008Typical Emmerich film - promises plenty on the trailer but ultimately fails to deliver. It's a simple formula - exposition followed by big set-piece; this worked well in Independence Day (tongue-in-cheek), but as it's hard to feel an affinity with any of the characters you just don't care. As a result the film just limps along not really going anywhere.
Customer ReviewBy a customer from UK , 23 Jun 2008Great special effects... amazing stuff.
But really, there's so little substance to the film (and the woefully presented love interest from Emmy Rossum to Jake Gyllenhaal).
Not enough focus on the survival of the events, and too much time is spent on the days before the big storm, without any real help for the character development.
But maybe that wasn't the point.
ExcellentBy DivaDJ (2 reviews) from Eastleigh , 03 Jun 2008All I can say,is, It is along the same lines as Armegedon and The Core. I personaly enjoy thi kind of film as it keeps me on the edge of my seat. The surround sound is pretty spectacular too.
