2012(The movie) - 2009

2012 is exactly what the trailers make it look like. Billions of people dies of the first , but there are only a few we're instructed to care about. Among them is Jackson Curtis (John Cusack) and his family, who start driving out of Los Angeles seconds before the destruction begins thanks to a tip from Charlie Frost(Woody Harrelson), a Yellowstone-residing conspiracy theorist who saw the whole thing coming and made a YouTube video about it.

The sequence were California is destroyed is incredible (marred only by some stupid footage of an actor playing a caricature of Arnold Schwarzenegger), and the money shot where Jackson flies through a couple of collapsing skyscrapers had me on the edge of my seat. The only problem here is that it happens too early in the film, and the last hour or so, spent on board the ships meant to save the human race, don't begin to compare with what we've already seen. 

So, if you liked the trailers for 2012, you'll probably enjoy the film aswell. It's beyond stupid, but it's also a lot of fun, so if you like this type of thing, than by all means check it out. You'll probably have a great time just don't think about it too hard afterwards.

Rating: 6/10


  1. OMG. I knew this would happen eventually. Why are they doing this to us?! The whole 2012 thing is rubbish.

  2. A movie I definitely want 2 watch
