Top Critic Reviews
Rotten: A shambles of dud writing and dramatic inconsequence which left me determined to double my consumption of fossil fuels.
- Anthony Lane, New Yorker, Sunday, August 1, 2004
Fresh: It fulfills its summer air-conditioning duties with flippant ease, and its enjoyably cloddish attempts at political relevance add a fascinating layer of incongruity.

It's true I'm not big on Disaster movies and I did find this one pretty boring in parts, but the effects were fantastic and it really is so topical in our current climate.

For some reason I've always loved this movie, it's just so much fun and doesn't try to be over-intelligent or pretentious. This was made to show a great what-if? scenario and have it's characters in multiple death trap scenarios. Jake Gyllenhaal triumphs as the star and is reason alone to find this movie interesting to watch. Dennis Quaid is also really good and his charismatic self. Actually the entire cast works really well and there isn't much cheesiness to the relationships. The effects are great and the sequences are far and above the best for a Roland Emmerich disaster event. While this won't go down in history as the best disaster movie, I personally think it's a lot better than most out there and is extremely re-watchable and harmless.
