I have looked at some of the reviews, and as much as anything I wanted to write a couple of lines simply to counter things.

There are far too many people who want to come across as insightful, so very seriously aware viewers, who know the hidden agenda going on, and can't be fooled into watching brainless entertainment without giving back a whole load of disdain. However, if you want a battleground for such debate, I hardly think 2012 is the proper place.

This movie is from the guy who make 10,000 BC, Godzilla, and The Day After Tomorrow. It's a disaster movie. It's a soap opera. As such it has all the cardboard characters, the ridiculous cliffhangers, the simple dialog, and all the depth of a pond. On the other hand, it has spectacular effects, load bangs, literary seismic events. Some characters won't make it, some will become unlikely heroes. Which ones? Watch The Towering Inferno from the 70's to find out, it's all the same.....

But then, what was this movie trying to do? Some here are talking about the political message, the "new world order". I truly think they must be having a laugh on us. This film has been made many times, and it'll be made many times more. It's exciting at times, daft, silly and ridiculous. It's a disaster, after all.

What more do you want? You want politics? Go elsewhere. Who'd have thought an American movie, made largely for the American market, financed by American dollars, would center itself on American ideals, and the American way of life? Are we really shocked?

This is a five not because it's a good film, but because it does what it says on the tin. And for those concerned, it's okay to simply be entertained sometimes, honestly, it is.

Format: Blu-ray Verified Purchase
Having already destroyed the world twice on the big screen, Roland Emmerich clearly wasn't afraid of running the risk of repeating himself when he decided to do a much more thorough job of it in 2012. Where most disaster movies work best by trapping a group of characters who usually die in reverse order to their star billing in an large enclosed space, be it a capsized sinking ship or a burning building that they have to fight their way out of, here he raises the stakes by trapping the entire human race on a sinking, burning planet that's starting to fall apart. Naturally there's a way out for the rich and powerful and the chosen few, which just as naturally don't include at least half of the main characters. Just as in George Pal's When Worlds Collide [DVD] [1951], which this can be seen as a hugely expensive reworking of with all the spectacular advances in special effects 60 years and $200m can buy, the governments of the world are building arks to preserve their species. Or, more accurately, the Chinese are building them with the rest of the world's money (Emmerich knows the value of keeping things multi-national to boost the overseas box-office, admirably including more major roles for non-white actors than the average American movie).

The echoes of his previous hits can certainly be clearly heard, whether it's destroying the White House but saving the dog again just like he did in Independence Day or having characters outrun extreme weather conditions - in this case pyroclastic clouds rather than global warming itself - as they did in The Day After Tomorrow.

Format: DVD
Not content with destroying Earth's major cities in Independence Day, thrashing New York in Godzilla, turning the northern hemisphere into an ice cube in The Day After Tomorrow, Roland Emmerich goes whole-hog and levels the entire bloody planet in 2012.

The premise for the movie is based on the commonly known but generally disregarded Mayan Calendar prophecy that the world will end on December 21st 2012 (12-21-12). Scientifically, this occurs as solar flares from the sun slowly heats up the earth's core by exposure to mutated neutrinos. Or something.

Point is, the Earth's core is melting causing the tectonic plates to dramatically shift position & the Earth's surface completely destabilises and with that comes devastating earthquakes, super-volcano eruptions & mega-tsunamis. Visually, the scenes of destruction are amazing with top notch CGI & you can't take your eyes off it particularly as the Washington monument, the White House, Christ the Redeemer, the Sistine Chapel to name but a few are destroyed, not to mention California itself.

Where this movie falls down is the barely existent plot & complete lack of conviction in its characters. John Cusack stars as a limo driver & failed science fiction writer who upon learning of the oncoming disaster gathers his estranged family & flees to find modern day Noah's arks that will take survivors to a safe location on the newly formed Earth. They manage to stay just about 1 step ahead of every earthquake, tsunami, volcanic eruption & ash cloud as millions die around them & it gets a bit ridiculous.
