Sail away sail away

End of the world movies always make me want to build a boat instead.


It's ok. I tend to like disaster movies It's fascinating watching the tornadoes rip through the city and seeing the water come up to the mountain tops.

now what

this movie was very "haunting". but i cannot like it anymore because i am still alive in 2012.


Fun thrill ride.


this movie makes me scared


Its more of a special effects movie than a plot driven movie but it was a fun disaster flick to watch.


This is one of the first movies i've ever watched (in 3d at a cimena) and one on the best movies i've ever watched. A definente 4.5.


very very intense

2012 rules!

This movie great! Everytime I watch it my jaw drops! Great movie!


A breathtaking movie on how the world might end in 2012. The special effects are marvolous and the scenes real. 4 stars!

Great Effects

I loved the special effects!

gee whiz

Hollywood at it finest. A...decent watch...a little stupid at times...how can they put together those GIGANTIC affects...only to have me (at least) sit there and frequently wonder how the scenes only made me feel...nothing, (but the awareness, of me experiencing scenes, images, and situations that were completely vacuous). It certainly was better than I'd expected...but so what?
