A realistic look of what the earth is capable off, and a true reflection of what has happened in the past, supported by every incresing sientific evidence. am must see for oeople without there heads in the sand.

Victor, South Africa. 1 January 2015

Well, the smug politicians didn't want to listen to the warnings of hunky scientist Jack Hall (Dennis Quaid) about global warning, did they? Oh dear me no. And now look what's happened.
A catastrophic temperature-hike in the Antarctic has caused a grade-one weather freakout, leading to New York getting swamped by an awe-inspiring tidal wave and then heaps of very much the wrong type of snow. In Scotland, another scientist, more fatherly than hunky and played by Ian Holm, is also monitoring the situation with a bunch of British guys - one of whom is keen on a sports team called "Manchester United", a detail showing laborious research by writer-director Roland Emmerich, and presumably aimed at promoting his film in the Far East.
In this Fox movie, the meteorological meltdown has at any rate shown some corporate loyalty by destroying all TV transmitter masts except those owned by Fox News and (in our own country) Sky News, which give jabbering updates about this deplorable situation.
In Independence Day, Emmerich demonstrated his love of blowing famous buildings to smithereens. Now he's at it again, wiping out landmarks by the score. "Oh my gaaard, there goes the Hollywood sign!" hollers a TV reporter as the H and the O start to twirl up, up and away over the hurricane-stricken landscape. Virtually all of LA is flattened, a calamity which elicits from the cast a slack-jawed but faintly stoic disapproval.
As ill fortune would have it, Jack Hall has other things to worry about apart from the utter destruction of the known universe. His moody, 17-year-old son Sam, played by moody, 23-year-old actor Jake Gyllenhaal, is away in New York, the very epicentre of danger, doing some kind of inter-school general knowledge quiz. Why is he doing this? Because he has an unspoken tendresse for a young woman on the team: Laura (Emmy Rossum). It looks at first as if she is going to be stolen from him by a cute guy on another team, but it is this same putative rival who lays an understanding hand on Jake's shoulder and says: "Just tell her how you feel, man." How Jake feels? It's tricky to divine how Jake is feeling. With his dopey, idiot-savant look he always seems a couple of tunes short of the full iPod. But he sure as heck saves the day for Laura and all the other youngsters.
There are some great special effects showing New York under the waves, with hints of Spielberg's AI and, of course, Planet of the Apes. You have to get through an awful lot of terrible dialogue and acting, however, plus a lot of fantastically insincere waffle about the environment, to get to those spectacular scenes. I felt the waters of silliness and boredom close over my head.

Still brilliant. Makes you evaluate global warming in a whole new light.
