I know some of the reviews of 2012 are not that great but for me this is the ultimate disater film.
I've seen numerous disater films down the years(Armageddon,Dante's Peak,Day After Tomorrow,Deep Impact,Independance Day and Volcano)some of them more mixed than others but this quickley became the best one yet.
The film starts off with a huge solar storm from space heat up the Earth from within,not long after the planet starts to crack within.
Gigantic earthquakes start to destroy alot of... (read more)

I LOVE this film. I think it's amazing. I started watching the beginning and I got bored and switched it off. Then another day I caught a bit of the middle of the film and got so into it, I decided to give it another try! I loved it, it's really an amazing film. (read more)

A terrible film! the special effects are the only thing that work in its favour. This cannot save the film though, as the acting is terrible; i was suprised to see woody harrelson apprear in the movie, playing an offbeat charcter. Although he is soon put out of his misery. I left the cinema a little frustrated having spend my time and money on a film that pitched an intersting idea, about the world ending during the year 2012, having been predicted by the Aztecs. The delivery is terrible... (read more)

the movie kept me on the edge of my seat, but it all got a bit 'oh god here we go again!'
i guess its an ok movie to kill two hours with - if you've really got nothing better to do - really! (read more)

this was by far the best film i have ever seen, it was excting, intresting and full of suprises.
it was very lenghy but it didnt bother me at all,
it was a little emotional in parts, wich made it all the more heart warming!
althoug it was much bigger seeing it on the big screen rather than on a home tv's
a truy amazing spectacle

A good disaster movie but a bit long at 2 1/2 hours. It takes a while to set the scene. A scientist realises that sun flares are going to destroy the earth. The story revolves around the governments getting their act together to save as many (rich) people as possible. John Cusack is a writer and he is trying to get his family to safety. Some great special effects if you can suspend belief. An entertaining film. (read more)

A movie that can be enjoyed only on big screen.
1) John Cusack as Jackson Curtis, a science fiction book writer
2) Amanda Peet as Kate Curtis, Jackson's ex-wife
3) Woody Harrelson as Charlie Frost, a conspiracy theorist disguised as Yellowstone hermit who prophesies the end of the world and is considered crazy by others.
Its when jackson meets Frost that he realises that the earth is coming to an end. so he tries to save his family.
Moreover many... (read more)

I was left pretty disappointed after watching 2012. After witnessing all the hype during its release, I was really looking forward to watching this movie.
The story line is so ridiculously unbelievable and farfetched I ended up laughing throughout a couple of scenes. So over-the-top, this film takes the disaster movie pretty much as far as it can go!
The story at times just doesn't make sense and while the actors do their best, they are, inevitably, forgotten when the action scenes and... (read more)

~ INTRODUCTION ~
In the summer of 2009 I was sat in a darkened cinema when I first saw the teaser trailer for the movie 2012. Instantly I knew that it was a movie that I would really like to see because I saw the words "From the Director Of Independence Day" appear at the start of the trailer. Independence Day is in my all time top ten movies and was a movie I thoroughly enjoyed. With the looks of the trailer ... 2012 was going to be just as good. There was a sense of global disaster, a...

Director Roland Emmerich has done it again! WOW! I was rather impressed with the overall realism of this film which left me feeling that it has actually happened (that real) I hope it never happens, but at least armed with the realistic scenes from this film I can safely say I came close to death while viewing this film with plenty of heart stopping moments.
The acting was brilliant and the story easily believable, but I was a little disappointed by the ending. Just how does one recover... (read more)

I am unashamedly a big fan of the director Roland Emmerich's films. I don't go for the intellectual depth or the characterisation of the protagonists, I go because his film's have the biggest, most expensive, most detailed special effects of any film maker in Hollywood today (with the possible exception of James Cameron); Independence Day, The Day After Tomorrow and 10,000 BC - each had bigger, shinier special effects than the last.
His movies are generally quite simple in construct: earth... (read more)

The latest in a long line of disaster movies from director Roland Emmerich (The Day After Tomorrow, Independance Day...), 2012 is an ambition attempt to show us what would happen if the world really was nigh. Taking a long held myth about the world ending the year 2012 as the Mayan calender runs out and coupling that with the alignment of planets and huge solar flares we get the idea that the Earth's core will suddenly heat up and cause the mantle to displace destroying the Earth as we know...
