Im not a big fan of disaster movies in general and Roland Emmerich in particular, i only went to see this movie because i absolutely adore John Cusack, but i have to say 2012 was the most fun i had in a movie theater this year.

The audience went nuts, specially when the Christ statue is destroyed, everybody loved it - im from Rio de Janeiro by the way!  Everybody screamed, cheered and laughed all the way through the movie and in the end there was a huge, really loud applause, football (i mean soccer, of course) crowd style roar!

The special effects - this is the kind of film where you have to mention them - are stunning, a true humiliation to any other movie of that genre.

If you want a deep, careful consideration about humanity and the world we live in, please go to another movie, but if you want great fun, 2012 is the roller coaster ride for you, very groovy! Its the end of the world as we know it and i feel fine!

I did think about seeing this film, but at the moment saving up to go back to NZ. Did you know the real statue of Christ is in Majorca, is an imitation the one in Rio de Janero

I never heard about that, but there are many similar statues, i know there is one in Andes, on Argentine-Chilean border, but not necessarily an imitation of Christ The Redeemer. Anyway, Rio de Janeiro has the only that is one of the new Seven Wonders of the World! Well, we dont anymore because Roland Emmerich destroyed it!

I didn't think I would, but I liked the movie I liked it a lot, the special effects were VERY well done... Yep, I think it's a good movie.

It's a shame though that at the end there's this moral... (Everyone is equal, everyone deserves the same bla bla) I'm not a big fan of movies with a moral and especially not in this movie. Why not? Because still the rich people get more than the 'poor' people. The people who paid to get on the ships in the first place but couldn't get aboard (in time) went on there in the end, so it's still people with a lot of money who got on the ships. Or is it just me?

But still, I liked the movie

I thought I wouldn't like it, but I changed my mind. It was well and very LONG movie. But I dont believe the theory the world is going to end and everyone is going to die. I believe it will happen, but not in short notice. Especially when I am going to graduate from high school in the year 2012!
