A popcorn flick to warm the autumn nights

In 2009 scientists discover that record level of solar flare emissions will have a catastrophic effect on Earth in 2012 giving world leaders only a few years to do what is necessary to save the human race.

Whether you enjoyed or disliked The Day After Tomorrow, 2012 is hard to get through. The movie only picks up the pace about 30 - 45 minutes in and even then there are some moments (in the climax for example) where things just grind to a halt.

Some of the characters either have nothing to do or are so poorly developed that you don't care for them: Danny Glover as the US President is weak here and Amanda Peet and Thandie Newton seem to serve as window dressing. I thought that Chiwetel Ejiofor made the movie so much more bearable to watch.

The best thing about 2012 is the special effects and the action - stunning and realistic though without any gore.

Sadly, 2012 is only memorable for its special effects and nothing else.

In all honesty I am not surprised.

It's what Roland Emmerich is now known for. :(
