2012 Movie Disaster
By: Samantha Lowe
Car wreck, plane wreck and boat wreck lead to this train wreck of a movie.
“2012” was another movie about the world going to end. Furthermore the movie also talked about how the Mayans were right and the world will end on December 21, 2012. Only a select few people are safe on a boat trying to make a plan to save the human race. While people on the ground, like Jackson Curtis played by John Cusack, desperately try to save their families from the mass destruction of the entire planet.
The ending of the movie really brought out how cheesy the movie was. Having the Earth end with a huge flood and the only way to survive was being on the updated mechanical boat similar to Noah’s Ark. This story has already been told and rewriting the same plot made the fear factory of the movie down. If they came up with a better ending it could have changed the whole perspective of the movie and made it a lot better.
The movie had one disaster after another that made it confusing. The back-to-back disasters left the audience thinking way too much. The audience was trying to figure out the movie so much that they did not really get to enjoy all the action and excitement. Also, another disaster was so many wrecks; there did not have to be a wreck for every different transportation. Yes, they needed to get where they were going with transportation, but the movie did not need to emphasis on all of them. The audience understands that they had a hard time getting to where they were going they did not need to keep emphasizing on it. Repetition made the movie lose it interest real quick.
The cast was another disaster in this movie. John Cusack, who played Jackson Curtis, lacked passion in his acting, making his emotion seem unreal. He had a hard time trying to portray the emotion he wanted while trying to prove he was a good father. Amanda Peet, who played Katie Curtis, also lacked passion. She normally shows emotion easily and grabs the audience’s attention, but she did not do this in this movie. If one normally cries when watching disaster movies because of the passion and emotion, this movie is more likely to produce anger. Being able to feel the emotion of the movie really makes a great movie and they could not do this.
Although the plot and characters were bad choices the sound effects were amazing. The sound effects save the movie and brought the audience to the edge of their seats. By making the movie come alive with sound the disaster seemed more realistic and believable. Without these effects the movie would have crashed and burned.
Overall the movie failed in many different areas and the plot was cheesy. This movie is something that would not be re-watched by me. The movie needed to step up and found different actors to bring more passion and emotion to the table. They also needed to rethink the plot and make a better ending making the audience believe that this really could happen in 2012.
