The best apocalyptic video would be about a black hole heading toward the solar system. The story would start with a young thoughtful kid and sum up his life in short clips and narration until he is 16 or 20 or something when knowledge of the black hole comes about, and then life will go on and the black hole will finally reach the earth when he is 70ish and that will be the end of the story. The whole middle would deal with themes of purpose, human nature, and suffering. For example when they first hear of the black hole it will show people's first reactions from the perspective of the character.

etc. etc. etc.

It's a predictable, cliche ridden, seen it all before in a dozen or so other movies of the same kind sort of film. To put it simply...it's just a bad film.

I was thinking about going to see it but I probably won't bother.

Didn't have particularly high hopes for it anyway. Just another CGI-fest where everything else is neck-deep in shit.

I saw it. Horrible plot/action. I liked a few of the characters and there were a lot of nice visuals. Still every time I saw the nice visuals there would be that constant nagging at me that it's special effect masturbation coming from a ridiculous story.

2.5/10
+1 Some Good Characters
+0.5 Nice Visuals

A nice super volcano eruption and tsunamis.

It's very good visually speaking.

Even the CGI SFX are not that impressive, I mean you've already seen these kinda visuals so many times over the last decade or so that they now don't even so much as make your eyes widen with surprise. Remember the first time you saw Jurassic Park and how amazed you were at the dinosaurs on screen?, well there is nothing anywhere near that kind of excitement or amazement on display in 2012. CGI is fast becoming redundant as there seems to be no inspiration or individuality involved anymore, it all looks the same in one film to the next. Bring back practical SFX and practical stunt work I say, at least then you know that what you're going to see on screen has been painstakingly worked on and has had tonnes of imagination,creativity and passion ploughed into it instead of a couple of a guys sat at a computer clicking a mouse.

Well the movie was just extremely unbelievable, and I'm not just talking about the plot. Lots of scenes made little sense at all. It's incredibly unrealistic and that really kills it for me. Also is hedges too much money on "suspense" but with a movie so unbelievable you'll never get sucked into their overly ambitious goal. It doesn't even make sense. Why put the main character near death in the very beginning of the movie? Everyone knows he is going to live...all you're doing is making it more unbelievable. At least that's "possible," but some things weren't even possible. Bodies don't disappear, tsunamis don't travel so slow, and clouds of ash don't suddenly slow down to 50% of their original speed just because the scene changed. Yeah it's that bad.

Couple of my friends (male) said the movie was bad all the special effects had been done by computer and the actors sucked

Another group of my friends said the movie was really good and sad and they even cried (yes they were girls)

Anyway I used to believe in the whole 2012 thing but right now I think it's a bunch of BS the only thing the Mayans could do is predict everytime time a full moon came (which is btw every 28 days) and the only reason they(scientists or whoever came up with the 2012 thing) think the world is going to end at 2012 is because their calender ended

exactly. and the scientist put down 2027 and 2039 (or was it 2029 and 2037) as teh end of the world. nostradamus said 3797, and the hindus (or someone from that area) give us around 4 more billion years if i recall correctly
actually there's more info here:
