    I just caught the late show for the movie 2012. The special effects were excellently done. Has anyone else seen the film?

    Would love to hear opinions. :)

    I haven't seen it and imo iI don't think I will because this whole 2012 thing is a load of garbage.people thought the same nonsense in back in the year 2000.

    The film is good, CGI is at his best in this movie especially when the big skyscrapers and streets turn apart. It was a little bit disappointing at the end as they tried to close the main gate on one of the ships:3eyes:it looked a little bit not so professional.

    All in all, good entertainment and a best way to waste your time in the evening:infinity:.

    Indeed , it had awasome visual effects and some nice and fun action..but 150min was a bit too long for a disaster/action movie imo.
    Overall it was nice entertainment , great pop corn flick

    Ah the worst thing in the movie is the Schwarzenegger lookalike - very poorly done imo.

    Other than that it's 2½ hours of almost non stop great looking action.
    Touches the emotional sides aswell - especially if you got kids and family.

    Very good movie - GO SEE IT - you won't regret it :D

    I hate disaster movies, and those drug addicted blood thirsty Aztecs of the past can never convince me that they are the only ones that know the exact date of when the world will end. I mean those are the same people that feasted on the hearts of others after sacrificing them. Anyone with half a brain should already know the world will never end, the world as we know it will change for the worst 1st- (cleansing) then for the better later- (renewal)...

    Yeah, I just caught the late show for it today as well. The special effects were good, but it's also so extremely exaggerated that in my mind, the words "typical American action movie" went blazing past every minute.

    So much that it became more than a typical American action movie, it transcended into showing the very limit of how exaggerated a movie could be.
    The sheer luck of those people is immense, and most normal people would find themselves thinking "... right" almost every time they survive something which would have killed you, had it not been in a movie.

    The special effects and action movie-ness was so exaggerated that it ruined most of the movie for me. But it still managed to glue my ass to the seat because something happened all the time, so props to 2012 for that much.

    2012 is better than The Day after Tommorow, but that's like saying dog **** tastes better than camel dung.

    Special Effects for the most part were top notch, but if I wanted special effects I would watch video renders on Youtube. The plot of the movie made me want to go hunting with an assault rife for the script writers. And they just had to rub in salt to the wound by throwing around so much moral stupidity in a movie where 6 BILLION people and the entire Earth gets wipped out, if I wanted a moral lecture I would've consulted a preacher. And to top it off they still run with the old cliche that the Russians are the bad guys and all die but the Americans live.

    My vote for this movie: 1/10

    The only reason it got a one was for some cool special effects, but they should've just left the rest out.

    i love how hollywood is taking advantage of people with average education and IQ... inducing fear and curiosity for something that pathetic as 2012 predictions, but as long as the money is rolling who gives a **** right?
    oh well.... respect for people today is next to nothing

    Woah!!! Well well my friend I see you're still holding down the law here. Lol!

    Good to see you man. :)

    I agree with most of you. The movie is filled with eye candy. Well.........if you're into looking at an insane level of destruction.

    funny thing, i JUST finished watching it. it was alright. like everyone else said, it had really cool special CG but the story could have been better. I do have to say though, i was entertained through most of it, and yes it was long.

    Let Hollywood give churches and conspiracy theorists some competition. :)

    Besides, if it get's people talking its gives people who know better a chance to educate others.

    I haven't seen it, but I'll watch it much later in Bluray quality..I don't expect anything else than a popcorn movie.
