Money is a language all nations understand.Afterall money is immortal ,it never dies.Money was created by man yet it has won over man.It is a universal language which speaks where words cannot.

The society we live in has given money the power to conquer everything.If you have money you can make even your widest dream come true ,trips to the farthest places on the Earth or even to survive the end of the world.....

PLOT : " The plot revolves around the heroic struggle of people trying to survive a global cataclysm that brings an end to the world. "

This is typical Roland Emmerich genre film ,which will have car chasing and plane chasing with heavy explosions in the line Independence day and Godzilla.The main asset of the movie is its gripping screenplay and wonderful presentation.

The special effects are breathtaking ,at times so intense and gripping that I found myself jumping in my seat.Throughout the film there is an incredible sense of urgency ,which contributed greatly to the build up.

John Cusack is perfect for the lead role.He has a vulnerable ,endearing quality in him.The rest of the cast here is neat with Oliver Platt ,Thomas McCarthy ,Chiwetel Ejiofor & Amanda Peet playing their parts well.

If you are looking for a thought-provoking ,profound commentary on human society and a movie that will leave you pondering your own existence ,BEWARE because 2012 doesn't necessarily bring anything new to the table ,but it's still one hell of a roller coaster ride and an excellent entertainer.

As much as this is a fun film ,it isn't afraid to poke fun at the government and religion on it's way to mass destruction.The Queen ,the Pope ,Goverments ,none are spared.

The many destruction sequences throughout the film are absolutely breathtaking to behold, and one wonders if Roland Emmerich starts every film imagining how he will destroy cities.

If this movie was made in 3D ,it would take the experience even a bit higher.The humor was also nice.And got the whole theater laughing.

2012 is the most convincing apocalypse ever put on film ,which is no small achievement in itself.

If you've seen Independence Day ,Titanic, or prefer disaster film genre ,you will not be disappointed at all with any of 2012.

The action was truly formidable ,demonstrating the power of 'mother nature'.Collapsing buildings ,flaming cars with planes falling down ,it was a real trip and a feast for the eyes and ears.

This is an awesome movie that has to be seen on the big screen for the full effect ,highly recommended!!! If you're going to watch it ,do yourself a favor and watch it on the big screen.It adds to the movie's hugeness as much as everything else.I would not be surprised if we see some awards for the special effects in this movie.

In this film some people cared about each other but the reality as we all know that even during apocalyptic times I feel only the RICH & POWERFUL will be cared for.....

  • Rating : "PG" for intense disaster scenes.
P.S : "The doomsday theory has sprung up from fictional ideas ,not a Mayan.Mayans insist that the world will not end in 2012.But evidence has been found of astronomical alignments that will occur in 2012."

I saw that movie yesterday. As you said I liked the special effects. But I feel something is missing in the screenplay. I cant emotionally bond with the lead characters.

@ Bharathi

There are flaws in it pa bot its a tyical ROLAND EMMERICH genre film :)

I saw 2012 movie yesterday and I felt that it is not upto the mark and what I expected. Its more of computer graphics and totally unbelievable. Though the picturization and the acting was quite good but it would have been made much better. Seeing the movie one time is more than enough I felt. It was my opinion and it may not be the same for all.
You have given good review.
