In the movie 2012, directed by Roland Emmerich and released in 2009, the world faces the possibility of an apocalypse as the earth's core overheats and causes massive natural disasters. The story follows the journey of a divorced writer, Jackson Curtis (played by John Cusack), who must not only survive these events but also rescue his family and loved ones.

As the movie starts, we see seismic activity escalating around the world causing massive destructions to various cities like Rome, Los Angeles, and Washington DC. This signals the onset of grave consequences that have been forecasted by the ancient Mayan calendar. Through a series of unlikely events, Jackson Curtis and his family, including his ex-wife Kate (Thandiwe Newton) and their two children, are thrown into a race against time to reach China and board the only remaining ships capable of withstanding the mega-tsunami that is sure to wipe out the remaining population.

As they traverse across the US, they come across various challenges such as a government that is keeping crucial information from the public and looters willing to do anything to survive, including violent attacks on other survivors. Meanwhile, a group of scientists, including Dr. Adrian Helmsley (Chiwetel Ejiofor), is frantically working towards finding a way to save humanity even as their efforts seem futile against the unstoppable forces of nature.

The movie features fantastic visual effects that bring to life the destruction of famous landmarks like St. Peter's Basilica, the White House, and the Santa Monica Pier. The action sequences are top-notch, and there is a constant sense of urgency to keep the audience at the edge of their seats. The acting performances of the actors are all commendable, with John Cusack delivering a standout performance as the central character.

However, the movie does have its fair share of flaws as it rushes through certain plot points while spending too much time on other mundane details. The movie's pacing also leaves something to be desired, with some scenes dragging on for longer than one would prefer.

Overall, 2012 is a thrilling disaster movie that offers an action-packed escape from reality. It is visually impressive with solid performances from its cast, even though it leans towards cliche plot tropes at times. Roland Emmerich employed his signature style of visual spectacle to create a thrilling story about survival in the face of overwhelming odds.

In conclusion, 2012 is worth a watch if you enjoy disaster movies or want to experience a fast-paced action-packed movie full of stunning visual effects.

2012 is a 2009 action movie with a runtime of 2 hours and 38 minutes. It has received mostly poor reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 5.8 and a MetaScore of 49.
