The Day after Tommorow
Where you will be? Where am I going to be? What am I going to do? Probably writing in this blog. Today I finally went to see the omni famous film that everyone is talking and all. I’ll describe it at first in two words: „Spectacular“ and „Disappointing“. Why?
Ok, why „Spectacular“ is pretty obvious. The fx are really, really at a level that gives the viewer great sense of realism. Whether it was from the AC in the cinema, or from all the snow, frost and cold that was on the screen, at some point while watching the movie I really felt cold. Anyway, thumbs up and a applause for the creators of dfx. One remark though – the digital pack of wolves that was chasing the main characters while they were scavenging the frozen Russian ship – this was the only piece of digital fx work that I really didn’t like in the movie.
„Disappointing“ – well, you might have guessed it. The plot of course. The dull happy end. The character lines that even a three-year-old can say out loud 2 minutes before the characters actually speak the lines in a certain scene. In general – all the „American“ movie attributes that make a movie „absorbent“ and way too shallow. While in the „Independence Day“ – movie by the same director, with a similar topic (it was again a major world-threatening catastrophe), in here there is not a single character that has at least some charm, some character development, some… something! Something to get the viewer attention. All the characters are like anonymous figures. True that the movie is action-packed representation of a disaster, but the human element, the one that is the one that brought that disaster to happening is somewhat minimized to the mere existence of the humans on screen.
Anyhow, though that I’m a little bit ambiguous about the movie, still I think that it’s worth seeing it – mainly because of the fx. One more thing – go see it somewhere, where the sound is good – the sound effects during the crucial points, in addition the visual fx, are good work too!
