Somehow, 2012 is quite a popular movie. I wanted to watch this movie again as I have only watched it once before and it has got really crazy visual effects and I enjoy the action of falling skyscrapers and crazy camera angles.
I don’t like the plot of the story though, it seems far too predictable – always a happy ending, and good luck seems to befall the characters far too many times until it becomes unbelievable. And, while I like the thrill of watching skyscrapers fall and the panoramic view of destruction as seen from an aerial view, what I do not like is the overusage of Computer Graphics (CG) which hyped the movie far too much till it seems too far-fetched.
But this was one movie which subtly makes one think about today’s society and the issues it is facing. The movie quotes are good.
Also, the movie took on the perspective and personas of many different people of distinct nationalities, culture and language and the sensitivity which it had taken in portraying their emotions and the meaning the producers wanted to bring across in the movie was enlightening. Also, what I loved about the movie is the global perspective it had taken in addressing this issue of an apocalypse. From the White House to The Vatican, The Himalayas to a traditional house in Japan, from Times Square to The Louvre in Paris and many more, it gave an intriguing view into happenings around the world on a global scale.
