So'n Weltuntergang am 21. Dezember 2012 hätte zumindest einen Vorteil gehabt: Roland Emmerich könnte keine weiteren Filme mehr drehen.
Must say that I expected more (if possible) from this "disaster porn" movie but I had already seen all the moneyshots from the trailers so the film itself had nothing to offer. I expected it to be much more over the top. One star.
it's not like this bullshit deserves even ONE star, kudos to special effects though. it took me a long time to see it, by the end i felt so lucky that i have spent no money whatsoever on this shit.
I'm not sure this film would've angered me so much if it had been about thirty-five minutes shorter.
Goodness, it was a waste of my time. The special effects were cool, but the plot was silly and hard to believe. John Cusack's character was always lucky. Always.
Roland Emmerich has gone far too long with his series of disaster flicks, only Independence Day was self-aware on being silly and the rest (especially this one) slowly gets old with its cliched stereotypical characters and boring set-pieces that gets stupidly over-the-top.
To top it all off, the 2012 doomsday theories is (pardon for being juvenile here) completely and utterly bulls**t!
Like "Crack in the World" [http://mubi.com/films/crack-in-the-world] but without the sweaters.
Another awful Roland Emerich film with fun special effects.
As usual, lots of stereotypical characters doing stereotypical things against a backdrop of things falling spectacularly apart. Emerich hires very good, engaging actors to embody his cardboard characters so the weaknesses are not nearly as glaring as they would otherwise be. And, really, you can't do better than John Cusack as a sympathetic leading man.
This probably is the movie with more stupid coincidences in the history of movies with stupid coincidences. Jesus, it's like The Day After Tomorrow exploded at 300 km/h.
I thought some of the sequences were really, really cool, but it was a pretty lame movie on the whole. Some of those take-off scenes with the collapsing buildings and stuff was pretty incredible though.
It's freaking boring, I can't believe I actually paid to see that piece of crap.
I can't believe the last words uttered in this film were "no more pull-ups"
If Harold Camping was wrong, then Roland Emmerich will have done nothing but abuse me. Give me my £34, 2:41 hours and spine health back!
A movie that manages to wipe out most of mankind in order to spread the message that it's bad to wipe out mankind.
