A comedy gem! - 2012 review by PV

Spoiler Alert
17/09/2010

The film is a real comedy find! (as is 2012: The Rapture).

Terrible script, worst 'feen toon' I've heard for ages (written by the producer - never a good sign...), histrionic emo-acting, the usual American sloppy spiritual themes (Christian, Tibetan...), the usual anti-British tone from this German director, and the ticky boxy ethnic and national quotes - no doubt to try and sell the film in China, India etc.

Yes, the special effects are good. No big deal, these days. Seen it all before...

The funniest thing is when they show archive TV news clips to show riots happening around the world - the one from London is the famous, much-showed image of a woman being knocked down by a police horse in the poll tax riots os the 90s! I laughed out loud at this point!

Emmerich was the director, wasn't he, who made U571 which claimed the Americans captured a U-boat (actually, the British did)? And didn't he also make The Patriot which showed the British committing atrocities which were actually committed by the gestapo in WWII? The guy is probably upset that we won the war eh...

But what I really want to know is: will we ever have a white man playing the president of the USA ever again I wonder... Or perhaps even a bad, 'unsaintly' black man? Or are Americans to guilty about their undoubted racial crimes to do that?

Hollywood tripe. Watch it and scream with laughter!

the end of the world ? - 2012 review by CP Customer

Spoiler Alert
26/12/2009

Dr. Adrian Helmsley, part of a worldwide geophysical team investigating the effect on the earth of radiation from unprecedented solar storms, learns that the earth's core is heating up. He warns U.S. President Thomas Wilson that the crust of the earth is becoming unstable and that without proper preparations for saving a fraction of the world's population, the entire race is doomed. Meanwhile, writer Jackson Curtis stumbles on the same information. While the world's leaders race to build "arks" to escape the impending cataclysm, Curtis struggles to find a way to save his family. Meanwhile, volcanic eruptions and earthquakes of unprecedented strength wreak havoc around the world.
