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.

There was some doubts among the production team about having a major disaster hit New York, especially after 9/11. Ironically, that sensitivity did not appear to be shared by New Yorkers themselves. Whenever it played in the Big Apple, audiences whooped with delight when the city gets hit by an enormous tidal wave. See more »
After the reporter is hit by the flying billboard from the tornado, the billboard flips over and there isn't a body. In the special features on the DVD, an animatic is shown, showing the reporter was left on the road, as opposed to him being stuck on the billboard. See more »
OK, definitely this is not very smart movie and it has many holes in the storyline, but if you like this kind of movies you will got a lot of fun! I mean, you should know what you can expect of this kind of movies. If you like movie "Independence Day" you will know what I mean (BTW good recommendation from IMDb team!). If you want art or some wisdom message or you are searching for holes and sanity in the storyline, forget it. Go and watch some European authors. But if you are looking for fun, want to relax yourself, to see some amazing and very realistic computer effects go and watch it! You will not regret. For true impression big theater screen is mandatory!
