2.5 out of 10 Probably just what you expect...
Richard & Anne from Meath, 15 May 2010
As a Saturday night popcorn action flick it's exactly what you'd expect, apart from the fac that John Cusack takes the lead role to add a little credibility to a film where suspension of belief is required in large doses!! The special effects are overwhelming at times and totally rediculous of course but it's entertaining in a shallow meaningless way. The short walk on parts by a variety of unexpected well known actors that should know better adds a fleeting moment of interest but otherwise it's

3.5 out of 10 2012 (2009)
Mary from Limerick, 29 Oct 2010
Disaster-blaster Roland Emmerich serves us up another of the globally apocalyptic extravaganzas he has made his own, applying his trademark CGI wrecking ball to various iconic buildings. The statue of Christ the Redeemer in Rio takes a tumble and an awful crack appears in the Sistine Chapel ceiling, running directly between the fingers of God and Man. Oh lordy. As ever in Hollywood pictures with urgent "international" settings, the opening scene is set somewhere in Notamericaistan, where the fir

0.5 out of 10 HAHAHAHA
Eimear from Cork, 17 May 2011
HAHAHA HOHOHO and a couple of tralalas....That's how you spend the flipping 2 hours in the merry, stupid, crappish, useless, ridiculous and laughable world of Roland Emmerich... Someone rid us of him please ! It's a heap of bolonis, beyond any doubt... even if you think the prophecy is true, you can't take this seriously, it's crap...can screenclick put a minus rating? Or 0 at least. 1 star is a reward for that film.

1.5 out of 10 Visual treat with no story
joseph from Galway, 25 Apr 2010
Some of the sequences are visually impressive, but the CGI spectaculars cannot make up for an appalling lack of story line. The paper thin characters, poor acting and embarrassing plot means that ever time characters are put in harms way you really don't care what happens to them. Get it for the effects if you like that sort of thing but don't expect any meaningful questions about the morality of man.

1 out of 10 Disasterous Movie.
Alan from Dublin, 02 Jun 2010
This is just one awful movie. I don't know how John Cusack got talked into making this rubbish, I've lost all respect for him. I know this is a special effects movie but a little bit of a storyline would have helped. Too many near misses in the first half hour just turned me off altogether, I didn't care if they made it to the giant arks ( laughable) and survived. Don't waste your money on this.

What's it about....
Blends the idea of the Mayan calendar, which predicts the world ending in 2012, with natural disasters such as volcanic eruptions, typhoons and glaciers plaguing the planet and a large cast of characters dealing with the mayhem.
