Two and a half hours of heaving and cleaving and crashing and crunching.

Over the top scenes of destruction aside 2012 is generally unimaginative in every way, from conception to execution. It's not particularly bad, but never has the end of the world seemed so quaint.

It's an exhausting, clumsy mess, and its moments of excitement are eventually toppled by the unstoppable tsunami of cheese.

To put it as simple as humanly possible, if you decide to go see one of director Roland Emmerich's end-of-the-world films you should know exactly what you are getting into.

Are we meant to applaud when skyscrapers topple and ships capsize, with tiny digital faceless bodies plummeting into the void? You make the disaster this real and it's not entertaining or chilling.

I can't claim to have seen every terrible film in cinematic history, but in my fairly extensive watchography, 2012 is certainly in the top 5 worst ever.

...Roland Emmerich has done it again - he has delivered a movie that can pass for either a sunny atrocity or a brilliant black joke.

An Oscar-caliber cast and dazzling visual effects can't rescue this formulaic disaster flick from a script flooded with generic dialogue and preposterous plot points.

If, as is believed in certain fringe circles, the world will come to an end in 2012, at least there will be no more movies like this one made.

"2012" is yet another example of technological genius and story-telling mediocrity.

This oafish epic about the End of Days -- as predicted by the Mayan calendar -- operates in a dead zone roughly equidistant between parody and idiocy.

In line with the U.S.-centric heartbeat of 2012, most other nationalities, particularly the Russians, are viewed as imbeciles and/or mere extensions of crude stereotypes - clever Indians, honourable Chinese, stylish Italians, and so on.

Master of Disaster Roland Emmerich lives down to his reputation with what amounts to the biggest snuff film of all time.

The Earth's crust destabilizes, quakes and tsunamis run riot, and continents shift, opening up a chasm directly under Columbia Pictures, the folks who hired Roland Emmerich to direct the movie.

160 minutes of this nonsense is at least 90 minutes of back story too many.

Rossiter Drake
San Francisco Examiner

It's missing the point to note that the patriotism on display in '2012' is embarrassingly shallow, as are Emmerich's genuflections to the value of faith. This is not a movie of ideas, but one of visceral thrills. On that level it's hardly inspired.

Emmerich wavers between shocking, silly, and maudlin like a toddler would fingerpaint with red, yellow, and blue.
