The film 2012

I hadn’t actually seen any trailers for this film or read any reviews before seeing this on Sky HD this weekend; I now wish that I had read the reviews as that film took 2 hours and 40 minutes of my life that I can’t get back.

I knew that this was a disaster movie and I rather enjoyed films like “Independence Day” (same director). So although I didn’t expect too much from the movie, I did expect that it would be fun. How wrong I was. The story is nonsense. The dialogue is nonsense. The characterisation is nonsense. The special effects is nonsense; yes really.

A lot of people have raved about the special effects. C’mon, it was mostly “meh” and some was truly awful. There was nothing redeeming in the film. I’m glad I didn’t pay to watch this film but it did waste 2 hours and 40 minutes of my life; it insulted my intelligence and abused the contract that a film has to its audience to entertain or provoke thought. The only thing that his film provoked from me was a feeling of anger and nausea.

I would put this film in the same category as that other awful film…“Highlander 2”.
