2012 is about the earth deciding to say "fuck it" and caving in on itself. It follows many characters that we don't really care about, and do not really care about at the end of the movie either.
I'm not gunna lie, but I somewhat enjoyed this movie. Sure it was cliche, but at least they knew it was cliche. They didn't try to be very over dramatic, except for the very end.
Every single thing in this movie has been done before, from the characters, plots, subplots, to the special effects. It was still pretty entertaining though. All the shots were directed properly, and the special effects were overall pretty decent.
It seemed like they rushed the plot to this movie, which is kinda disappointing. If they spent a bit more time on the script, this movie could have been the epic masterpiece is was marketed as.
The acting was good, script was poor, but it still kept my eyes on the screen. I might have been too nice to this movie, considering I saw it right after wolfman, which made my brain implode. Anyways, I would probably rent this movie and put it on in the background of a party or something... nothing too thought provoking.
This movie cost 150 million dollars to make. ONE HUNDRED...AND FIFTY.. MILLION DOLLARS! That means this movie went through many investors who thought the script was good. The script was complete garbage. I don't know if the director changed the script to suit his needs or what. Every subplot/character in the movie was completely useless. I felt ZERO emotion towards any character at all. I watched 2012 after seeing this movie, and 2012 is GOD compared to this painful lack of entertainment.
The gory scenes were there just for the sake of being gory..there was no feeling attached to it at all. They could have gotten away with a PG rating if they just cut the gore out. It's not like there was sex in the movie...because we all know that romance subplot went somewhere. As for the female lead in this movie, I have never seen a character so useless towards the plot of a movie. She had no purpose but to set up a stupid romance similar to something you would see in twilight. ITS AN R RATING PEOPLE! You can set up some sort of mature connection between the male and female lead!
I absolutely hated this movie. It was a joke among my film friends. DO NOT waste your money people. Let this movie tank. 150 million dollars...the film students at our school could make a better movie for 20 000. Hollywood needs to realize that script is more important than...well I don't even know what to call this movie.
