Last Saturday night, I joined Stef and her family to watch the movie 2012. We saw it at Trinoma Mall in QC. Wow, there were too many people in the mall! I found out that people were lining up to watch New Moon (I’ll post review soon). Good thing, I had already watch that movie. This time, I got a chance to watch 2012.
As I was saying, I watched the movie thinking that I could get to see the ever infamous “2012 phenomenon”. I don’t have time to read. I do know this: December 21, 2012, according to the Mayans is believed to be the end of the world.
The movie stars John Cusack, Danny Glover, Amanda Peet, Oliver Platt & Woody Harrelson. This is a power cast that portray their role very very well. The movie is really fictional. So if you’re coming into the movie thinking that it would really happen in the next 2 years, then you’d be disappointed. 2012’s effects make the movie unrealistic. It was made to entertain us. It also had touching moments. And yes, I did shed a few tears in some scenes.
Do you believe that the end of the world is near?
Does it matter if it was?
Wouldn’t it be better to believe what the world will make of us? One thing is for sure, the movie taught us that we should stick together. That we should care for each other. Everyone is important. When we stay together and help each other, we’ll be able to succeed.
I liked the movie even though it was two & a half hours long. It is like the movie Armageddon but with a different twist. The special effects were just cool, though as I mentioned, they exaggerated it a little as all the damages can’t seem to harm the main cast 😛
Danny Glover’s character really was touching. He portrayed the US President. He opted to stay with his people even though he had the chance to save himself. How I wish that we have politicians like that in real life. Our world would be a better place to live in.
Anyway, if you have time, do watch this movie. My rating for this is 4 out of 5 stars.
