He warns U.S. President Thomas Wilson that the crust of the earth is becoming unstable and that without proper preparations for saving a fraction of the world's population, the entire race is doomed. Meanwhile, writer Jackson Curtis stumbles on the same information. While the world's leaders race to build "arks" to escape the impending cataclysm, Curtis struggles to find a way to save his family.

2012 Audience Reviews

Clevercell Very disappointing...
Marva It is an exhilarating, distressing, funny and profound film, with one of the more memorable film scores in years,
Roxie The thing I enjoyed most about the film is the fact that it doesn't shy away from being a super-sized-cliche;
Francene Odetta It's simply great fun, a winsome film and an occasionally over-the-top luxury fantasy that never flags.
londonkimmey Honestly you could watch this movie and not be bored and and not dislike it. Is it the best script and movie ever made? No. But it's decent and one of those movies you can watch and get through and may even really like. Not bad as most of these reviews on here.
chameleonaram The acting wasn't bad nor the special effects. And the length of the movie was fine too since you need time to build out the characters. But them, being lucky twice in a row in anything is a achievement upon its on, but like twenty times? I think you all know what I mean, it's just not realistic. But not a reason to rate it below a 6. I was entertained and I watched the whole thing. Giving it below ok, but like many others giving it a 1 , that's not fair! Be honest, too much right to say it was all wrong.... Period!
reeseegaming The world ended 6 years ago? What did I miss? My biggest gripes with this movie are the bad cg, a convenient chain of events, and some pretty terrible child acting. This movie doesn't have a climax or any suspense because they let you know from the beginning that the world will end in 2012. My favorite character was Woody Harrelson's character, and he died less than half way through by being engulfed by a cg super volcano. The whole movie, the crew flies from Yellowstone, to Vegas, to China, to Mt. Everest, giving you a major headache! Also, they conveniently have two pilots that they just know, and they both die by the end. Concluding this awful film, it's boring, unrealistic, badly directed, and very funny!
nick-63646 I'm truly fascinated with how many reviews of this movie start off acknowledging that as a Roland Emmerich vehicle, they went in expecting cheesy dialogue, terrible characters and spectacular visuals.... and then appear utterly SHOCKED that they had to sit through a movie with cheesy dialogue, terrible characters and spectacular visuals. Honestly, I would probably be pretty PO'd too if I was stupid enough to pay see a movie of this nature in its release. You put on a movie like this when you want to kill a few hours with some mindless action and good CGI. You don't go to see a movie you expect to be bad and then write reviews of it patting yourself on the back for your observation. Leave Roland alone.
