Storyline

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 days, 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.

Goofs

The time during the "ice age" that is depicted, which follows a normal, warm inter-glacial period, is geographically and physically impossible, taking what is shown in the movie as mere days, when in reality, the transition takes up to 8,000 years between cycles. Ice ages, in reality, follow a "Milankowich Cycle" of 100,000, 42,000 and 22,000 years, not mere days or weeks or even a century. The movie is nothing more than a morale in disguise as gross hyperbole, with the comical suggestion that the CO2 man has generated during the industrial revolution, the mass production of automobiles, driving cars and the exhaust they cause, right down to using plastic bags, is meant to be a guilt trip on the audience. Nothing that man has done could significantly accelerate or usher in the next ice age, as meteorological evidence shows that rises in CO2, whatever the cause, take mother natures tens of thousands of years in which to compensate, and not the ridiculously short time frame depicted in the movie.

Why did they burn books in a building full of wooden furniture?
7 August 2005 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Aside from the poor science, writing, acting, plot, etc., the single most baffling thing in this piece of trash was the burning of books. If you're in a metal box surrounded by books fine burn 'em. But there was furniture and fixtures and doors that would burn much better then books. They would burn hotter, longer, and more efficiently then books. So anyways watch this crap if you want to see some nasty fake storms. That's about all this film has to offer. On a side note though, seeing a fake Cheney having nature slap him in the face with devastation was nice. And the fake Bush being so insecure and weak willed that he couldn't make a decision without his VP explicitly instructing him on the "correct" course made me giggle.
