2012 is an apocalyptic movie directed by Roland Emmerich and played by an ensemble cast starring John Cusack, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Amanda Peet, Thandie Newton, Oliver Platt, Danny Glover, and Woody Harrelson.
2012 is a combination of the “Titanic” meets “War of the Worlds” meets “Day After Tomorrow” all tied into one 2-hour and 38-minute action-packed movie. The movie starts off with a American scientist (Oliver Platt) traveling to India to meet his friend (Jimi Mistry), and not soon after he discoverers the startling secret that the world may be coming to an end.
The other half of the story focuses on a divorcee (John Cusack) and his family who face an uncanny chain of events similar to the events in the movies listed in the previous category.
The way this film captures the many diversities and perspectives on life is what gives it that “this could happen to me” feel, but at the same time, it loosens the mood with an array of comical moments.
The movie has so far made more than $23 million at the box office and is seated in second out of this week’s movie premiers (Disney’s “A Christmas Carol” is #1).
This movie to me put out what it promised in the theatrical trailer, two thumbs up.
