2012 Reviews:

I was well aware that this film would be about over-the-top action and CGI only and so I decided to shut down my brain to stand-by and direct all accessible blood to the eyes and ears. A technique that works perfectly for classic Bruce Willis or Arnie movies giving you 2 hours of entertainment and fun. Unfortunately this time it did not work. "2012" delivers so many weak blows to a homo sapiens' mind that some type of subconscious alarm gotta have been triggered that woke up my brain to avoid any permanent damage. Then the true suffering began.You don't expect to receive a nice script with witty dialog and nice storytelling in films like this - and you don't receive it. You don't expect the greatest and most convincing actors in the globe in films like this - and you don't receive them. Woody Harrelson being the only exception. You probably don't expect the greatest editing, lighting, costume designing etc. in films like this - and you don't receive them.You DO expect overwhelming visuals in this type of films - you receive them partially. You DO expect thrills and suspense and surprises in this type of films - you don't receive them.Roland Emmerich artfully manages to create watching the end of the globe in monumental pictures a thoroughly boring experience. Why? Because this movie never touches you in any way. The main characters remain shallow throughout the entire 158 minutes. Some are just not interesting, others are so overdrawn (Yuri, Tamara) that you just can't think of them as true people. The storyline does not develop and lead to something you did not expect. There is no flow. Ridiculous action scenes alternate with pathetic, kitschy good-bye talks that fail to catch you because NO current human being would ever talk or act in the methods depicted here. There is no realism at all in virtually any stage of the movie so how should you manage to connect to it?But the worst of all is the awkward exaggeration in EVERYTHING shown on the screen. It is great to see a nail-biting last-second escape in a movie. Seeing your main characters taking a one-in-a-million possibility each ten mins is revolting. It is an insult to your intelligence. In this respect "2012" has set a fresh standard. It makes all four "Indiana Jones" films look like documentaries. Who cares for the laws of physics? Just invent fresh ones if it is important to save the hero!Of course this is fiction and you are allowed some creativity to hold things going but there is a limit to what you can ask from the viewer to believe.*** Spoiler*** My "favourite" stage of the movie: Our heroes are on a Russian cargo plane heading for China. The plane is piloted by one professional and a student pilot who has had a several hours on a single engine sports airplane(?). After having survived a last-second escape (see?) from the airport they are planning to receive a refueling at Hawaii. Unfortunately the island has turned into a lump of molten lava and they have to continue their flight knowing they would not create it to China but go down somewhere in the launch waters. The very moment they run out of fuel they explore that the Asian continent has moved 2500 kilometers in their direction(!) and they crash-land their aircraft on some elevated plain a stone's throw from the original destination! Of course there is a group of helicopters flying by only mins soon to pick them up and receive them to the secret base they were heading for... *** End of Spoiler ***And no, this is not an exception. There are numerous parts like this. It is just like I said: an insult to your intelligence.Believe me, I should easy list at least a hundred of flaws and errors made in this film ranging from human behavior over technical design to mathematical possibilities - not even regarding the constant violation of physical principles.All in all I am convinced that it is for your own nice not to spend your cash on purchasing a ticket for this crap but search any another test for it. Burning it is a legitimate alternative. At least that would save your time.


They had all the money, actors and unique results they required so how did they manage to screw this one up? Obviously they thought exiting moments were more necessary than developing deeper characters and that's why this storyline that had nice potential stayed so shallow. The dialog was everytime cheesy and none of the 'hero's' in this movie really showed any true emotions nor did they give any of those speeches that give the audience goose bumps. Other thing that really bothered me was that so much was almost going wrong the entire time. Each second of the movie had a 'close call' which made the movie seem fully unrealistic. Examples are planes taking off just before the runway collapses or driving just quick enough to not receive hit by an explosion. This can be very cool if it doesn't happen 100% of the time and I have never seen a film abusing this method of creating excitement to this extent. So to sum up: If you feel like turning your brain off and watching unique results and large explosions with a very shallow story then this film is for you. But if you feel like watching a film with a bit of depth then go and see something else.


2012 cost 260 million dollars and is 158 mins long. At roughly 2 million dollars a minute, one might at least expect a thrill-a-second work of exciting entertainment, since one does not go to a Roland Emmerich film expecting either art or deep meaning. Unfortunately, the many millions spent on this bloated, overblown "B" category programmer should not guarantee the filmmakers a nice script with a tight plot and interesting characters. Emmerich treats his own screenplay (co-written by Harold Klausner) with a lvl of seriousness customarily reserved for the Holocaust or biopics of figures like Jesus Christ or Mahatma Ghandi. There is no plot to speak of - Jackson Curtis (John Cusack) learns of the impending end of the globe and has to rescue his offspring and ex-wife from danger. That's all that happens in the whole film - for over 2.5 hours! By the 4th or 5th time we have seen Jackson and his gang escape death (whether by earthquake, plane crash, volcanic eruption, tsunami, etc., etc.) the entire thing has become so turgid and wearisome that one finds oneself rooting for the tsunami to slay them all just so the film can end and one can go home. The thin plot might not be all that terrible if the movie were better-paced and more exciting, but Emmerich wants you to know that he is A Serious Auteur and that 2012 is an Necessary Movie About Our Time, so each sequence keeps going WAY past its sell-by date. Watching this film is like being hit in the head with a wooden plank multiple times - one is eventually stunned into abject submission. Emmerich does everything at least twice, and his respect for his own material seems to have convinced him that 2012 should not have been shorter by one second, when at least 45 mins of useless sub-plots involving disposable minor characters as well as repetitive sequences of towns collapsing, flames covering the sky, 1500 meter waves drowning everything in sight and popular monuments crumbling into depthless chasms should and could have been left on the cutting-room floor. By the time Jackson saves the high-tech ark containing what's left of North American civilization (don't ask), apparently by channeling Shelley Winters' swim stage from The Poseidon Adventure, any sense of awe which the sight of large waves washing over the Himalayas could generate in the audience has been replaced by a numb want that the entire thing will be over later and a prayer that one's brain death will only be temporary. After watching a entire lot of towns receive destroyed again and again, one simply becomes mentally and visually exhausted by the entire bloated mess. Surprisingly powerful performances from a thoroughly professional cast are wasted on tissue-thin characterizations - but trust me, these performers earned their cash just from being able to tell the bland, clichéd lines they are given with a straight face. Furthermore, despite the appearance of realism thanks to some technically flawless CGI, there is no blood or gore - there could be body parts raining down from the sky during the destruction of LA, but somehow no one seems to be on the streets. On the another hand, a lot of blood and gore might have reminded the film audience that one is in fact watching a movie about the extinction of literally billions of living things, but why could something so petty be more necessary than seeing whether John Cusack will receive back together with his ex-wife and become a character so his whiny, spoiled son will agree him? In any case, what does it tell about contemporary society that a film showing nothing less than the destruction of the whole globe is rated "PG-13"? As far as the "science" and "facts" behind this utterly ridiculous bit of piffle, the less told about that, the better. Of course, this piece of overblown trash will probably turn hundreds of millions for its makers and safe Emmerich's position as one of the top commercial directors of the day. At least if the globe now ends in 2012, all copies of 2012 will be destroyed.
