A decidedly odd couple with ulterior motives convince Dr. Alan Grant to go to Isla Sorna (the second InGen dinosaur lab.), resulting in an unexpected landing...and unexpected new inhabitants on the island.

As Paleoclimatologist named Jack Hall is in Antartica, he discovers that a huge ice sheet has sheared off. But what he does not know is that this event will trigger a massive climate shift that will affect the world population. Meanwhile, his son Sam is with friends in New York to attend an event. There they discover that it has been raining non-stop for the past 3 weeks, and after a series of weather-related disasters begin to occur over the world, everybody realizes the world is entering a new Ice Age and the world population begins trying to evacuate to the warmer climates of the south. 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.

In LA after the tornado hits the building with the cleaner, the main power is turned off, yet the emergency lighting has not yet activated. The emergency lighting in that particular building, as clearly seen behind the cleaner, is a self-contained battery which would have immediately turned on once main power is lost. See more »
The build up to this disaster film is somehow far better than the aftermath. We are introduced to the main characters, told about their quirks, special talents, etc. and the scene is setup nicely for a damn enjoyable film. By the time the disaster hits most people will be pretty pleased with story so far and the effects during the disaster certainly don't disappoint at all.
From here on in the movie falls apart. It quite simply becomes boring to watch and although the acting among the survivors is talented and believable it doesn't stop you thinking there should be more to enjoy. As usual for the genre, some of the science is flawed, and although this is often forgivable, the failure to keep the audience entertained, only makes them think about these flaws all the more.
Ultimately 'The Day After Tomorrow' peaks too soon, and rather then build to a climax, it's over way before we are satisfied.
6/10 should have been way better
