Well, the thing is, the same thing happens over and over again.
They get warned to run, they don't listen, an event happens, some random person dies, they reminisce and cry. Better yet, they try to say goodbye, but they're too late.

Sorry, my bad. My friend told me it was three and a half.

I'm not going to see this because I have bad anxiety. If I see this I will have bad thoughts for weeks. I know it's not real, and nothing but bad solar storms are going to happen in 2012, but I will still freak out.

And for those who think it's really going to happen, it's not. the mayan calender ends in that year, but that doesn't mean anything. It's just the end of the cycle. The real mayans are pissed off that people are starting all this hype over nothing. I read some article about them getting letters from kids writing to them about how they don't want the world to end..

But back on topic, is this movie any good? :3

The Mayans died out quite a while ago. And for those stupid enough to think it's real, it's a calendar by a race of people who died off, kinda hard to continue making a calendar when you're dead. Also, if the Mayans were so advanced to be able to know when the world would end, how come they couldn't save themselves hmm?

Isn't that the same with all of Roland Emmerich's films...
The same things happen over and over with giant plot holes... (transformers)

From the looks of it, it sounds like people are going for the cg as opposed to the actors and they pale in comparison to it. The movie is way too long for me so I don't see myself going to watch it.

Watched it, loved it (even though the action was full of wtf, but yeah, I need some WTF LOL action).

Kinda nice, just remember to turn off your REAL-O-METER and take in the fiction.

Kind of ironic that the movie is gonna be shown this year instead of 2012 itself though lol.

and no, the world is not gonna end on 2012 just yet, it will only end when the sun finally loses it light and thats still at least a billion years away.

It was exactly what I expected -- killer visual effects and a mundane plot. I think the visuals were worth the theater watch.

I want to see this! (* o *)
I don't mind long movies. It makes it worthwhile.
And about the world ending on 2012, i still don't know what to believe. I am sure it's false though, so i am glad. xD

Yeah. I'm sure it's just a time full of recession and natural disasters and war. I really don't think the world is just going to "end" without any reasonable proof.

I just came back from watching the movie.

Personally, I think the movie sucked, my brother thinks that I'm asking too much of the movie, which maybe I am, but I still think the movie suck hell = =

Sure the visual seems awesome...but what about the story and the characters? With such disastrous event happening in the movie, they could've described humanity's extreme dark and good side much, much better...

Well they did show some, but it's hardly stunning at all to me...like that Russian guy who abandoned them when the chopper came? Ya that's so unexpected~ I couldn't see it coming at all~ /sarcasm

And not to mention the ending...
Spoiler!


my conclusion:
if you just want stunning visual effect, go watch the movie.
if you're looking for great plot & good character depiction or you're as picky as I am, don't go watch the movie, you'll just be as pissed as I am...

Strictly speaking, knowing when the world will end and/or when your civilization will end does not give you anything to prevent it.

Logic nitpicking aside, insufficient explosions. Correct change.
