2012(The Movie): My Impressions

Post by Leuchtender Soldat on Sat Nov 14, 2009 3:12 pm

As I'm sure you all know 2012, the massively hyped disaster flick was
released by Columbia Pictures this past Friday. It came out promising a
larger than life story, with mind-blowing SFX. So, did it live up? Over
all it wasn't too bad.

The casting was good, the SFX were
impressive, and the story was enjoyable(Though over the top). It really
worked to focus on the human toll rather than that of property or
scientific. It runs almost three hours long. To which I consider to be
a bit much, though they kept the plot rolling so I guess I can forgive
them for that. my only real complaint is the general treatment of
secondary roles in this movie. Think cannon fodder(or in this case I
guess it'd be Fire, Water, and Earth-fodder). Most are hardly fleshed
out,until they are just about ready to be killed.

As is
typical in these disaster flicks, the point-of-view is shifted multiple
times to try to show all sides in the great cataclysm. A family torn
apart by divorce, A Chief Scientist who helped to discover the problem,
A Tibetan Monk, and A Russian former Boxer w/his family are all
featured as important players in the story, and for the most part it
blends well. Also of note, John Cusack(Considered the Lead Character)
is harder to kill than a Terminator.

Anyway, I digress. I
would suggest giving it a watch if you like disaster movies, but don't
expect anything too epic. I'd give it a solid 7/10.
