IMDb Poll Board's Favourite Film Rated 6. Edit Cast Cast overview, first billed only: John Cusack Jackson Curtis Amanda Peet Kate Curtis Chiwetel Ejiofor Adrian Helmsley Thandie Newton Laura Wilson Oliver Platt Carl Anheuser Tom McCarthy Gordon Silberman Woody Harrelson Charlie Frost Danny Glover President Thomas Wilson Liam James Noah Curtis Morgan Lily Also on board are the humans chosen to survive, including all the characters who have not already been crushed, drowned or fallen into great crevices opening up in the Earth.
These include the heroic Jackson Curtis John Cusack and his estranged wife, Kate Amanda Peet ; President Wilson Danny Glover , his chief science adviser, Adrian Helmsley Chiwetel Ejiofor , and his chief of staff, Carl Anheuser Oliver Platt.
Many gigantic arks have been secretly constructed inside the Himalayas by the Chinese, funded by a global consortium, and they're the only chance of the human race surviving.
Along with the animals on board, there's the maybe well-named Noah Liam James. In theory, ark ticketholders represent a cross-section of the globe, chosen democratically.
In practice, Carl Anheuser pulls strings to benefit the rich and connected, and wants to strand desperate poor people on the dock. I'm thinking, Emmerich often has a twist when he names villains, like Mayor Ebert from "Godzilla.
What does "Anheuser" make you think of? Such questions pale by comparison with more alarming events. The tectonic plates shift so violently scientists can almost see them on Google Earth.
This havoc requires stupendous special effects. They're impressive. Not always convincing, because how can the flooding of the Himalayas be made convincing?
And Emmerich gives us time to regard the effects and appreciate them, even savor them, unlike the ADD generation and its quick-cutting Bay-cams.
Emmmerich also constructs dramatic real-scale illusions, as when an earthquake fissure splits a grocery store in half. Cusack is the hero in an elaborate sequence involving his desperate attempts to unblock a jammed hydraulic lift that threatens to sink the ark.
He does a lot of heroic stuff in this film, especially for a novelist, like leaping a van over a yawning chasm and riding a small plane through roiling clouds of earthquake dust.
The bottom line is: The movie gives you your money's worth. Is it a masterpiece? Is it one of the year's best? Does Emmerich hammer it together with his elbows from parts obtained from the Used Disaster Movie Store?
But is it about as good as a movie in this genre can be? No doubt it will inflame fears about our demise on Dec. I'm worried, too.
I expect that to be even worse than Y2K. In the ensuing chaos, Gordon and Tamara are killed. Yuri is killed as well when saving his children.
Tenzin is injured, the ark begins filling with water and is set adrift. Jackson and Noah dislodge the tool and the crew regains control of the Ark before it strikes Mount Everest.
Jackson is reunited with his family and reconciles with Kate. Twenty-seven days later, the waters are receding.
The arks approach the Cape of Good Hope , where the Drakensberg mountains have now become the highest mountain range on Earth, due to the continent of Africa , plus a few areas of Europe and Asia , having risen above the waters.
Adrian and Laura begin a relationship, while Jackson and Kate rekindle their romance. An alternate ending appears in the film's DVD release.
After Captain Michaels the Ark 4 captain announces that they are heading for the Cape of Good Hope, Adrian learns by phone that his father, Harry, and Harry's friend Tony survived a megatsunami which capsized their cruise ship, the Genesis.
Adrian and Laura strike up a friendship with the Curtises; Kate thanks Laura for taking care of Lily, Laura tells Jackson that she enjoyed his book Farewell Atlantis , and Jackson and Adrian have a conversation reflecting the events of the worldwide crisis.
Jackson returns Noah's cell phone, which he recovered during the Ark 4 flood. The ark finds the shipwrecked Genesis and her survivors on a beach. Graham Hancock 's Fingerprints of the Gods was listed in 's credits as the film's inspiration,  and Emmerich said in a Time Out interview: "I always wanted to do a biblical flood movie, but I never felt I had the hook.
I first read about the Earth's Crust Displacement Theory in Graham Hancock's Fingerprints of the Gods. A number of studios heard a budget projection and story plans from Emmerich and his representatives, a process repeated by the director after Independence Day and The Day After Tomorrow Later that month, Sony Pictures Entertainment received the rights to the spec script.
The film depicts the destruction of several cultural and historical icons around the world. With a tsunami surging over the Himalayas and a purportedly scientific message that the world would end in , the trailer's message was that international governments were not preparing their populations for the event.
The trailer ended with a suggestion to viewers to "find out the truth" by entering "" on a search engine. The Guardian called the film's marketing "deeply flawed", associating it with "websites that make even more spurious claims about ".
The studio introduced a viral marketing website operated by the Institute for Human Continuity, where filmgoers could register for a lottery number to be part of a small population which would be rescued from the global destruction.
The film's score was composed by Harald Kloser and Thomas Wander. Singer Adam Lambert contributed a song to the film, " Time for Miracles ", and expressed his gratitude in an MTV interview.
In , the film received renewed interest during the COVID pandemic , becoming the second-most popular film and seventh-most popular overall title on Netflix in March The site's critical consensus reads, "Roland Emmerich's provides plenty of visual thrills, but lacks a strong enough script to support its massive scope and inflated length.
North Korea reportedly banned the possession or viewing of The year was the th anniversary of the birth of the nation's founder, Kim Il-sung , and was designated as "the year for opening the grand gates to becoming a rising superpower"; a film depicting the year negatively was deemed offensive by the North Korean government.
Several people in North Korea were reportedly arrested for possessing or viewing imported copies of and charged with "grave provocation against the development of the state".
In Entertainment Weekly reported a planned spin-off television series, , which would have been a sequel to the film.
There's hope for the world despite the magnitude of the disaster as seen in the film. After the movie, there are some people who survive, and the question is how will these survivors build a new world and what will it look like.
That might make an interesting TV series. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. This article is about the Roland Emmerich film made in For a list of films released in the year , see in film.
