When Zoe is testing her blood sugars for the first time, she pricks her finger, adds the blood to the strip and then inserts the strip into the meter. This is the correct procedure. The goof is that the meter showed her blood sugar was 58 therefore she needed sugar and not insulin, because her blood sugar level was too low. See more »
The Day After Tomorrow When the Cold Snap Began in Hobart!
My "Summary" pretty much explains it all and my 6 star review is very generous. I only watched this movie because it was yet-to-be-reviewed on IMDb and because I have a... thing for Indiana Evans (Matilda from Home and Away). It's very similar to The Day After Tomorrow and sadly it's destined to drown in the shadows of Tomorrow When the War Began. Nevertheless it was nice to see a straight-to-DVD Aussie disaster movie that wasn't a total disaster.
The ozone layer lets us down and suddenly an icy gust manifests itself just south of Tasmania. It soon becomes a global concern when Tazzies turn up looking like a T-1000 drenched in liquid nitrogen. If only they'd listened to the guy who tried to warn them... blah blah... and his daughter is so hot... blah blah... and his boss is that rubber senator dude from X-men and he's not being very helpful... blah blah.
The acting is very "Home and Away on a Good Day", but I get the feeling that all the actors did the best they could with the wooden script. Sometimes it's hard to tell if they're Aussie's pretending to be American's or vice versa, but that's not necessarily a bad thing. There's a little splash of Kiwi and even Big Ben gets a wee bit nippy at one stage.
The more you like Aussie films, disaster films, mindless entertainment and/or Indiana Evans, the more you'll like this film. In a nutshell, the acting is okay, the concept is okay, the effects are okay and for all we know it could be the most prophetic movie ever made. If we all instantly freeze to death, I'll give it an extra star or 2. Needless to say that I strongly recommend it to Meteorologists from Hobart or Sydney.
