The Day After Tomorrow is great fun.
Its the only one of Emmerichs movies that work because its the only one where you do actually care about the characters .
The same cannot be said for 2012 or Independence Day for example.
Not only that but you get some great action scenes , spectacular effects and a thundering soundtrack.
Citizen Kane it ain't ,but for a rollercoaster of action and spectacle its hard to beat.
In HD with 5.1 sound it's a fab viewing experience.
On regular C4 and through standard tv speakers a lot of the spectacle of the film is lost.
I think thats why C4 show it at peaktime so often .
