Global warming triggers the onset of of a new Ice Age. As tornadoes flatten Los Angeles and a tidal wave engulfs New York City, the entire Northern Hemisphere begins to freeze solid. Climatologist, Jack Hall (DENNIS QUAID) and his son Sam (JAKE GYLLENHAAL) and a small band of survivors must ride out the growing super storm to stay alive.
This was a very entertaining movie. The special affects were really cool and realistic. There is a great side story about a father and son who have drifted apart, but the dad lets nothing get in the way of him saving his son. It doesn't hurt that the father, also happens to be a world famous climatologist who the government has enlisted to help predict the killer weather before it destroys all of mankind. The acting is really good, and they all play off of each other very well.
