Clearly, considering the undeservingly high rating. This kind of movie should be broken down like cvcjr did, one rating for being entertaining (the high rating), and one for being an overall rating (which of course would be closer to zero).

Well, IMO, I thought the characters were all great, even though some are rough sketches. I thought the script was good (and I do mean it). The last act was very tense and had me on the edge of my seats in nail-biting tension and it was coherently structured.

And that would explain why you're not a professional critic. It's almost unanimously agreed that the characters and script were the weakest parts of the movie.

Oh, wow -- It's "unanimously agreed"?? I don't care. It was "unanimously agreed" that The Shining was a horrible film when it came out.!

You sound like a conformist. Also, if you bothered reading my review, I specificially stated that the film is "formulaic to its core." The reason why I loved it in the first place is because it's formula done to perfection.

Only for you. I find it hilarious that you guys act like my opinions on movies determine how your lives will turn out. In fact, I really appreciate it.

DANGER! WARNING! Patting yourself on the back that earnestly can cause some really serious blisters. This may come as a real downer for you, but my life has turned out pretty well and I rather doubt there is much of anything you can do or say at this point that will influence the future direction of it. Nonetheless, this is a message board and the entire purpose of its existance is to provide for point, counter-point exchanges. Many of them are quite tongue-in-cheek, but in the future, I'll be careful to make sure I flag them for you when I post messages of that nature.

Ah, don't kid yourself, 30 years from now, people will still be saying that the story and characters were the weakest links of "2012". But hey, maybe you should be a professional critic. You'd be one of the very few that gives undeserving, good reviews to crappy movies without the studios paying you off!

You're insane, Michaels. I don't think people will be saying anything about 2012 by the end of THIS year.

Good point, such is usually the case with every movie this hack director makes. That just further proves this movie shouldn't get any more credit than what it really is ... yet another superficial CGI porno.

I'm surprised at the results regarding this movie. Now it can only get a nomination via write-in. My friends and I hold 2012 in especially low regard. Not only that, but how did The Day After Tomorrow get ignored in the 2004 RAZZIES for Anchorman, Dodgeball, and Starsky and Hutch?

And for the measure, I believe on 12-21-012, nothing big will happen. Maybe the sun will set sooner, and the North Pole will get shrouded in darkness, but it'll be NO different from other winter solstices.
 
I'm much more afraid of April 2039. Some scientists once suggested a meteor would stray disturbingly close to Earth. "Spring of O-Thirty-Nine" is where it's at!

True, some say that on 12-21-2012, there might be a polar shift in which the North and South Pole with switch and thus the Earth will be thrown into chaos, much like it did in the movie. However, you bring up another interesting note, as I do recall back in 1997 or so, that NASA made the annoucement that a meteor will be headed towards Earth in 30 years ... much to the laughter and mocking of many.
