Roland Emmerich likes imagining catastrophies. He already sent aliens to blow us up in Independence Day, a giant lizard to stomp us in Godzilla, and he unleashed major climate change in The Day After Tomorrow. Now he's taking inspiration from ancient Mayan history, which predicted that the world would come to an end in 2012. This will occur through volcanic eruptions, typhoons and glaciers. And John Cusack will be the taxi driver who faces it in our stead. Available on DVD in 2013.

Andrew Hedley Flicks Writer

To say that 2012 is the 'mother of all disaster movies' would be both a true statement and an insult to disaster movies. It cannot be denied that for wholesale destruction and death count this film has it all, bar the actual planet exploding like Alderaan being hit by the Death Star. But in doing so, 2012 teaches the viewer that gluttony is not a healthy virtue by any account. More

So the end of the world occurs in the year 2012, just as the Mayans predicted. During this event, an Ordinary White American Divorced Family Man (played by John Cusack) fights to save his family whilst navigating a series 'talking' scenes (mostly people crying into telephones) which link one stupendous, special effects-riddled, scientifically-implausible, action sequence after another. Danny Glover turns up as the President of the USA.

It's hard to put a finger on what hurts this film the most: the fact that, at an unrelenting 158 minutes, your eyes actually get tired of seeing things blow up and irritating people perish, or that the film only serves up the same special effects and migraine-inducing sound design you've seen and heard before in far better movies, just cranked a few notches higher.

2012 definitely delivers what it promises: mass-death, destruction, mayhem, all white-washed into PG-13 entertainment. Anybody who enjoys this particular genre will get their money's worth but those with a nose for plausibility may find themselves weeping into their popcorn by the end. Hide

The real end of days

Jack Nobody (?)

The real end of days, if you can confront it is the IRS and the creeps that control it which are the INTERNATIONAL BANKERS. "ALL" solutions are at hand but are all being suppressed by these power hungry creeps. That's the end of days which we can all do something about it. The flick is just as true as Superman, Spiderman and so on, flicks.

Mayas was low level civilisation.

Kotyanchan Nobody (?)

Who can follow anything from Mayans ,they was far behind of old real civilisations as Sumerians,Egyptians or Indus Valley culture.When Europe and Asia travelling truth world ,make fireing weapons,have Telescopes and other and other inventions,that time Mayans do not even know iron,not even paper.They was realy in stage what can you not call civilisation.They was using even canibalismus in time when all asians and europeans running very succesfull system with high culture,bussiness and sience knowledges.So,Mayans can not be right ones who today can be example of modern civilasion what can be fallowed.If we have to look to our future we have to follow real ancient civilisation what did starts thousand years bofore Christ,not somebody who start build their culture couple hundreds years after Christ was born.So,do not take seriously Mayas predictions.Look in Bible,Sumerians writings.Than you will find out ,where is truth.If realy something happend ,that will be no end of civilisation,but return of real masters, who before ruled this planet,who create Homo Sappiens,who create for son of Adam religious to discipline all humans.People called them Gods and angels,devils and satans,but who are realy was?We call them now aliens.But they are not aliens ,they our creators and masters.And I believe they will come back soon.They will thorn down all governments and will rule again this planet what they called KI,we will become again their slaves Adamu.They are those who we calling God,Allah,Eli,Elohim.Real God do not care about us, or our planet He create all universe and he is not our creator he is creator of our Planet and our mysterious creators and masters from some place in Universe who we called Elohim,Anunaki,Allah,Enki,Nephilim,Angels,Satans ,Demons,Giants.I thing religious makes for us all life just more simple,that is all.But our human brain have huge capacity with no limits to learn more and more and have need,hunger to know more and more.I thing that time when we will find out who we realy are,who is realy our God,why we exist it is comming.

Terrible Review.

Daniel Nobody (?)

Ok so badly written, terrible spelling and a poorly informed. As for the concept, I don't believe myself that the world is going to end but some well respected scientists have supported the theory and the Mayans were right on many other events. As for the film, let's just hope there is a storyline!

UKNOWME Nobody (?)

This looks epic! I love disaster movies, maybe I'm a pessimist disguised as an optimist but this looks great. As for the "is it real" thing.. I reckon it's just the end of the age in the calendar. The Mayans followed the stars apparently. And if it turns out to be true then so be it. Death is just another path of life. You can't die. It's a universal fact.

That is really inconsiderate of someone who is actually learning the language themselvez && it haz been said that English iz a very hard language to learn, maybe you might want to take back what you said because I think other people will find what you said offensive.

My friend,I did not write down that all people from English speaking countries are low educated,but lots of them.About my english: I never learn Your language in any school ,or studying from books ,I just listeneting and pick it up english language from radio and TV,or from people in work.I know that all this have nothing to do with review about movie 2012.That all just happend,because of Daniels stupidity and arrogance,who start picking on my english language in this review.I just do not like kind of people like Daniel.I met with many people like him,arrogant english speaking people.I am from central Europe and I'am pretty sure that lots of other europeans have same experience with Americans, Canadians and British people who just speak English language and pretending they are smartest in the World.They do not know that almost all great inventions in World was invented by peolpe from central and eastern Europe. English speaking people just pay for their inventions(X Ray, penicillin,Lasser,Phone,TV,Radio,nuclear bomb,nuclear energy,.....)So speaking English language is not really enough to being smart,as Daniel and people like him.

Good, not great

Mungous Nobody (?)

The film is easy to watch, quite entertaining, the CGI and acting run some rough ground at times but all-in-all it's pretty decent. Whilst the concept is perhaps unrealistic, the execution of events is generally well thought through, right up to the keep-Americans-happy Biblical-esque ending. Saw it on a big, booming screen, definitely not worth it on a small one.

P.S. Can we do something about spammers and people who are posting anticipatory reviews, it makes the section a tad unhelpful

Spectacular - but hokey

Mike-Regan B-Grader (?)

Just like "Independence Day" and Day After Tomorrow" but hopefully not as boringly bad as "10,000 BC" I'll be off to see this sucker on the big screen - it looks to be another Emmerich re-run - spectacular and hokey at the same time!

BTW - if we don't self-destruct first, "the world" will end in about 5 billion years time, when the sun self-destructs and takes out the solar system. Most likely humans will have been long gone by then.

if you think that the Mayans are a low level civilization then why dont you think of it this way- look at yourself right, you live in a modern world where people have blueprints, compasses, telescopes and all that other high level tech. now picture the Mayans. they didnt have anything apart from rocks sticks and their best tech-fire. now they didnt have the things that we have now and yet they still predicted that the world would end. And they still made that cool pyramid in Mexico and built themselves homes and everything else they needed. So next time you want to dis an ancient culture, look in the mirror and start dissing yourself instead because you dont know anything about the Mayans or this movie for that matter.

The good,the bad and the ugly

Superfly Nobody (?)

The good: Special effects , action and egde of your seat stuff was really good and a must see on the big screen. And Woody Harrelson

The bad: Script, cliche moments, annoying Russian, even more annoying scientist, the ironic moment the when the aircraft carrier the USS JFK crushes the White house.

The Ugly:Stupid Europeans(not British)should read there history before making stupid remarks, and maybe be thankfull to the British and Americans for winning the World wars for them as most of them just gave up there arms(mainly French) to the Germans. And most of the most important inventions came from English speaking countries :)

Spectacular but Hokey Pt.2

Mike-Regan B-Grader (?)

Now that I've seen the film (on opening nigh, no less!) I stand by my earlier comments - if anything, "2012" kinda strikes me as being like "Day After Tomorrow" but with more liquid water than frozen water!!
Great "check-your-brain-at-the-door" entertainment, but that's it. Spectacular, hokey and thouroughy predictable - and with plot holes ya could drop a solar system through!

And the big Russian plane exists in real life - it's an Anotonov An226 "Mriya" (Dream) they built it for carrying their "Buran" space shuttle around.

Laura Nobody (?)

I thought this movie would be good with great special effects and so what. Yes, special effects were great but after the first half it all gets just a bit ridiculus. They probably could have shortened it by a lot and fixed up the a number of issues that they had namely-why they didn't get hypotermia in the water- they were in the mountains for crying out loud. Trust me-leave ur brain at home

Clint Nobody (?)

Wow some nut cases have come out of the woodwork to comment on this film (I don't exclude myself if you must know). I suspect they're the people who clap when the airplane manages to just clear some collapsing countryside for the fifth time in a row.

This movie is about half a dozen people driving to the airport then flying around for a bit before getting on a boat. That's it.

I had expected this film to be so terrible it'd be hilarious but I just feel deflated. Sadly this film probably was entertaining for some people but even the special effects failed to impress me enough to ignore the fact there is nothing else going on worth sitting through.

A Great Action Movie

Kieran Nobody (?)

constantly keeping things moving at pace, acting was on par with other action movies. But. to say the story is simple, is to say Lord of the Rings was a group of people walking to a mountain. The movie was better than most at being at least somewhat scientifically accurate. A very good disaster movie and with subtle elements of religion (the arks), evolutionary theory (their arks were pointed toward the theorized point of where humans evolved). Awesome movie, not often I would consider going to see it a second time in the cinemas.

Great On The Big Screen

Good Effects Nobody (?)

I agree with a couple of the posters who actually are aware of history. The Mayans did not predict the world would end in 2012. Their calendar phase simply ends there, and a new cycle begins. For the rest of you, maybe you'd like to do a search on "2012" and "Mayan calendar" or something to that effect. Read up on the subject a bit.

I found the effects in the movie to be fantastic.

No surprises having seen the trailers and read some reviews

Mark Nobody (?)

The trailers were out for so long and covered so many of the CGI scenes that there really was little surprise-value in what we saw.

Flicks review was spot on but I'd give it a much higher score because my wife and 11-15 year-old kids enjoyed it. My wife liked it because she didn't see a lot of people killed but all the rest of us with better eyesight spent a lot of time watching all the little people trying to survive in disintegrating buildings, massive fireballs, etc.

We all found there was little to connect with emotionally so the high point was probably when dad phones his estranged son. The music kept trying to raise the tension but failed due to the sheer scale and repitition of CGI disaster.

It didn't look like 2012; the cars and sets all looked somewhat dated. So the CGI must have taken a long time to produce because the main cellphone used in the movie - which was clearly in produce placement like the Sony Vaio laptops - was a Sony Ericsson W950 released in mid-2006.

Clint - it was a lot like "Planes, trains and automobiles" because of the focus on transport but the scale of human disaster just got heaps bigger than John Candy ever was.

Laura - they didn't freeze in the water because although they were in the mountains the water came from the East (Pacific Ocean).

Review

Paul Nobody (?)

These user reviews are stupid. Ignore them and read this:

2012 is enjoyable. It's an absolutely, highly implausible (that's the understatement of the yeat) disaster movie comprised of many narrow escapes. But it knows exactly what it is, doesn't take itself seriously, and ups the ante through to the end. If you like things a bit like this, this is one of the more fun films of its kind.

comment / reply

It is okay i guess...

ProudtobeChristian:) Nobody (?)

Wasn't too shabby. The special effects I thought was rather convincing. I don't believe that the world and its inhabitants will be destroyed in 2012, many will expect it but it IS written that no one will be able to predict the exact date. It will occur when no one is ready. The action was actually quite fun, I mean, come on, it was a good movie with lots of things happening and we don't need to read too deeply into it. But I would like to say that there IS a God- God, namely (in the bible): "For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing but to us who are being saved it is the power of God."

The world ends with a (beautifully rendered) yawn...

adamatdramatrain Flicks Superstar (?)

Emmerich blows CGI sh*t up in spectacular yet yawn-inducing fashion in this bloated corpse of a movie in which only Woody Harrelson escapes with his reputation intact. The plot holes are bigger than the yawning CGI chasms the rip apart US cities. If you like the chase-escape-chase-escape predictability of movies like 'The Fugitive' and 'Indy 4' then you'll like this popcorn muncher - but there's nothing new and not much to enjoy. The script, dialogue, direction and acting bar Woody) are flat as a wrecked cityscape and other than state of the art CGI animation and beautifully rendered destruction this has nothing to offer save multiple moments of "no way did he escape... again!" Who thought armageddon would be this dull?

Press Reviews

39% of critics recommend

Consensus: "Roland Emmerich's 2012 provides plenty of visual thrills, but lacks a strong enough script to support its massive scope and inflated length."

ROTTEN TOMATOES SCORE. Read more reviews on Rotten Tomatoes.
Chicago Sun-Times (Roger Ebert)

The mother of all disaster movies (and the father, and the extended family) spends half an hour on ominous set-up scenes (scientists warn, strange events occur, prophets rant and of course a family is introduced) and then unleashes two hours of cataclysmic special events hammering the Earth relentlessly. Full review.

Christchurch Press (Graeme Tuckett)

The film is dumber than a bag of hammers, of course, but by crikey it doesn't hold anything back. Full review.

Empire Magazine (UK)

Fundamentally terrible, but almost irresistibly entertaining. Its horrors get a tad monotonous in the mid-section, but it’s still a value-for-money hoot. Full review.

Hollywood Reporter

Eye-popping special effects ensure that this movie will be a smash hit, and while it's entertaining for most of its excessive running time, the cheesy script fails to live up to the grandeur of the physical production. Full review.

TV3 (Kate Rodger)

If you leave your brain at the door, and I mean LEAVE IT THERE, and grab a jumbo popcorn, this disaster movie’s CGI may entertain. Full review.

Variety (USA)

The visual effects are pretty sensational, delivering the cutting-edge CGI goods auds want and expect. It will be hard to watch "Earthquake'' ever again after this one. Full review.
