Movie Review : 2012
I thought this movie would generate a fair showing,I was wrong,the turnout for this movie is so huge in my country. Every theater is packed and the queue is so long,many people can't even get a bad seat. Even though per theater there are more than 3 studios airing this movie.
As everybody knows,this film talks about the end of the world because of the solar flare and the massive natural disaster because of that,which Mayans have predicted since long ago. The early part of the film is pretty drowsy for me,too much explanation and talking between characters. It's important for the plot of the movie but tiresome to follow. Woody Harrelson plays a crazy radio host who prophesies the end of the world brilliantly,he seems like a mad man indeed. I love the destruction in Pasadena city,every houses crumble,every tall building goes down,the road cracks,etc. The special effect galore in this movie are unbelievable,no wonder this movie costs US$200 million dollar to make. I'd say it's worth it,it's not over the top I think.
My disappointment is that I didn't see Eiffel Tower,Pisa Tower and many world famous building icon being destroyed. Only a handful of them are shown in the movie. The display of tsunami,volcano,earthquake,etc is mind boggling. No wonder,so many Indonesian watch this movie for the 2nd times and so on. It might be the biggest movie this year in here. That Russian billionaire is very funny too,especially when John Cusack can't start the car engine and that billionaire takes control and uses his voice recognization LMAO.
The message that I got from this movie is that we as a human should unite together and forget about our differences like races,religion,cultures,gender,sexual orientation,nationality and start to realize that in this planet,we are all one. We're together in this and we should love one another and stop this madness that has been going on since ancient times. I hope this movie although with its special effect bonanza,will make some people realize about their true identity.
