Movie Review: 2012 Directed by Roland Emmerich, 2012 is based in the greatest fear of the human race i.e. the end of the world. According to the Mayan Calendar, the world will undergo a series of large scale natural disaster on December 12, 2012. The film is totally based on the same. The disaster scenes have been made to look real by using the digital technology and animation. 2012 is a melodramatic film. While you watch the movie, you might start thinking that if this would have happened with you, what you will you do? The lead characters of the movie have been played by John Cusack, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Amanda Peet, Oliver Platt, Thandie Newton, Danny Glover and Woody Harrelson. The movie is two hour and 40 minutes long, but there is a sinlge moment where you can deny that it’s irresistibly entertaining. This is unpretentious, blockbuster entertainment and it beats Emmerich’s own Indepedence day and the day after tomorrow in terms of scale and spectacle.
