I was unlucky enough to have watched this film last night and for the first time decided to put pen to paper to write a review simply because even 12 hours after watching this film I still cant believe just how incredibly bad this movie actually was, in fact I was seriously considering watching it again just to confirm that it was as bad as I thought, but luckily enough after having read the reviews here on Amazon I am not alone and although it's perhaps very mean of me to say but I am pleased that I am not the only person to have sat through this painful experience and believe me it is painful.
Like many I got this confused with the 2012 film by Roland Emmerich starring John Cussack which it's self has got very bad reviews but I thought I would have a look just for the special effects and think that having the two films with the same name is truly shameful and very underhanded.
So 2012 Doomsday
Special effects eerrrr what special effects?? Like the part they are standing in a blizzard and not one hair on anyone's head is moving?? I could honestly do better at home with my camcorder no joke! But seriously their simply are no special effects in this movie so don't expect any!
The acting and dialog with all the Christian overtones simply makes you cringe all the way through the movie, I can't believe that people are actually getting paid for making this sort of rubbish it's bad beyond belief!
The story line is so ridiculously bad it's "almost funny" but trust me you wont be laughing, the earth stops rotating and everyone else is dead except our four heroes but don't worry everything will be fine now that they have made it to the Mayan temple!!!! God has saved them to start over again...... wow how very generous of him to save all four of them!!!!!!!!! So the earth not rotating and being ripped apart is not a problem for our four heroes then???
The directing was just all over the place, again I think it's beyond belief that this director Nick Everhart actually got paid to make this pile of rubbish, I am not a violent person but really do think this guy should be shot at dawn just to stop him inflicting this sort of painful experience on anyone again and a warning to anyone else that this sort of rubbish will not be tolerated.
Normally when I buy a bad film I give it to my brother so he can suffer too it's only fair!! But in this case I just can't bring myself to do to him so it's going strait in the bin as I honestly would not even give this to a charity shop as it would not be fair on the poor unknowing victim who brought it.
In conclusion this is without doubt the worst film I have ever seen and believe me I have seen some real stinkers in my time, sometimes films can be so bad they are funny but this is not one of them, it's just painful to watch so please you have been warned do not watch this movie you will seriously regret it...
Ps. Very annoyed I have no choice but to give this film one star...............
