2012 (Theatrical Release USA 2009)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 3.1|5.0 Starsììì

2012 takes a long time to start its ‘real’ story as the lead character, John Cusack (playing character Jack Curtis), takes far too long to realize the world has entered an apocalyptic stage. While outstanding graphics portray spectacular views of  a large American coastal city disappearing into the ocean, these same graphics overpower the film's great storyline. A surprise ending makes this movie a good action flick for apocalyptic film fans.
