The Day After Tomorrow (2004) – Special Effects Review
The Day after tomorrow is a disaster film about a scientist who warns the authorities about an extreme change in climate conditions that would ultimately lead to an ice age.
Although many critics have frowned at the scientific information contained in the film, the visual special effects used to portray the consequences mitigate this effectively.
I particularly thought the scene where the tsunami hit the buildings and the Statue of Liberty was a great effect to add to the realistic destruction that the weather was causing. As the Statue is quite large in size and to see most of it covered in water was creative in illustrating the severity of the scenario. Additionally, the birds-eye view of the tsunami flowing through the streets was convincing.
Another scene that I liked was the tornados in LA, other than the realistic appearance of the tornados, the flying vehicles and other heavy things displays the sheer strength within them.
