Review of '2012'

2012.jpg A bit end of the world action flick. John Cusack plays the failed divorced author Jackson Curtis who struggles to maintain a personal relationship with his children living with their mother. He gets caught up, of course, in the end of the world in a series of amazing scenes of carnage. Evidently increased solar neutrino activity has heated up the earth's core causing the earth's crust to start to “shift”. First to go is California as an incredible race through the crumbling state in a limousine to take off in a plane before the whole place falls into the ocean. The coincidences fly thick and fast throughout with many in audience able to see what will happen a mile away…Having said all that, it is all a bit of good fun and spectacle. The effects are quite unbelievable – perhaps too much so, too perfect…Grab some popcorn and have a watch of some mindless American film entertainment.
