2012 Movie Review

Disaster movie maven Roland Emmerich (Independence Day, The Day After Tomorrow) crafts this apocalyptic sci-fi thriller following the prophecy stated by the ancient Mayan calendar, which says that the world will come to an end on December 21, 2012. When a global cataclysm thrusts the world into chaos, divorced writer and father Jackson Curtis (John Cusack) joins the race to ensure that humankind is not completely wiped out. Chiwetel Ejiofor, Danny Glover, Amanda Peet, Thandie Newton, and Oliver Platt round out the cast of this end-of-the-world thriller co-scripted by the director and his 10,000 B.C. writer/composer, Harald Kloser. ~ Jason Buchanan, All Movie Guide

Last Sunday November 15, 2009 I watched the box-office hit movie 2012 with my friends at Ayala Center Cebu. There were lots of people lining up to buy tickets and I bet it will double next week because of the much awaited New Moon, which I'm not a fanatic.

They brought another great disaster movie.

There were few funny scenes in the movie and some corny dialogues. The special effects were great (well what do you expect from Hollywood), I was just kind of bothered with the acting, I felt like it needs more convincing act so I could feel the scenario.

I just learned from Yahoo that it gained a worldwide sale of $225M, wow this is a disaster hit.
