You cannot say, in the terms of the life and career that Emmerich has built for himself, this is not the apex of his work. The world blows up. The world blows up a lot. The world blows up fantastically. There are worst quests in life.

Emmerich favours hoisting his camera high and dry to give audiences the best panoramic view, but it removes all tension from proceedings - you're always at a safe distance.

Cusack, with his one-of-the-guys face and his nice way with child actors, does creditable work as an Average American Dad trying to put things right.

2012 is the rare case of a bad film that I'm nevertheless obliged to recommend you see.

Most of all, I liked the airlifting of giraffes to ark safety via helicopter and the bizarrely unreasonable cheeriness of the beleaguered survivors who all but shout "hip-hip-hooray" after billions of other Earth citizens lose their lives.

Action-packed entertainment builds around efforts, not to prevent the destruction of the planet, but to plan for the continuation of the human race.

It's the end of the world as we know it%u2026 again! But hand it to Roland Emmerich, an old hand at cinematic Armageddon, for making the apocalypse such an entertaining ride.

The strongest thing about this movie is the "this I have to see" factor. If only the story had the same kind of groove going as the effects.

The end of the world movie to end 'em all, it turns out to be a sort of cross between the sci-fi camptacular When Worlds Collide and every previous Emmerich movie. Guilty pleasures galore.

Plausible plot points, great special effects and characters we care about. That's really about all you need to enjoy this Apocalypse Wow!

My enthusiasm for 2012 is not because I think it's high art with an important social message. Screw that %u2013 this movie is about pure spectacle, and it pulls that off fabulously.

There's a whole world of destruction going on in the film's ridiculously excessive special-effects sequences. But there's a whole lot of entertaining going on, too.

2012 is well made spectacle. It's finely crafted trash. It's in on the joke, and it's laughing along with you.

2012 is reminiscent of yesteryear '80s shlock-tastic blockbusters -- total popcorn entertainment with ridiculous dialogue and impossible situations and special effects that will boggle the brain for a good two-plus hours.

I'm curious, just a bit, about what goes on in the mind of Roland Emmerich. Does he know that he makes some of the best comedies ever written?

As with "Independence Day," "2012" is what comes of hiring legitimate actors to hawk hokum. And "2012" certainly is all cheese on wry, but it's smart within its means as a palpable, if popcorn, lesson about parental and personal responsibility.

Gleefully over-the-top, this film takes the disaster movie pretty much as far as it can go

In the final forty-five minutes the movie starts to feel very long and played-out.

Here's a movie that's dopey, cheesy and sometimes downright silly. But it's a disaster movie. It's supposed to be ridiculous.
