After climatologist Jack Hall (Dennis Quaid) is largely ignored by U.N. officials when presenting his environmental concerns, his research proves true when an enormous "superstorm" develops, setting off catastrophic natural disasters throughout the world. Trying to get to his son, Sam (Jake Gyllenhaal), who is trapped in New York with his friend Laura (Emmy Rossum) and others, Jack and his crew must travel by foot from Philadelphia, braving the elements, to get to Sam before it's too late.
Sarah says, "In undergrad, my atmospheric science professor spent an entire class discussing the many ways in which this movie is scientifically inaccurate. Facts aside, what is not to like about an action movie where a climatologist is the hero."
