The movie started off when a geologist from India found out (finally some other scientist other then the American) that something is wrong with the earth's crater. As the earth had been absorbing the sun radiation for so many years, it had started to boiled up like a big microwave and this means trouble. So the scientist informed another friend of his, Adrian who happened to be an American scientist and later informing the US President. That was 2009 and at 2012, the earth crater started to get really unbalance and started to crack open before schedule. The story tells of Jackson (John Cusack) who is bringing his children to YellowStone for camping and stumbled upon government geologist doing some research over there and a crazy news man is telling everyone one world is gonna end as being said by the ancient Mayans. The story tells how Jackson save his family and also some other people along the way and I won't spoil the ending for you but let's just say that it's a good ending and also logical.
So what do I think of this 2 and a half hour movie? Something refreshing and new as I mentioned earlier, as it's not everything need to be discovered by the Americans. There are still other scientist out there in the world. John Cusack again played the character really well in this movie. The story doesn't really focused on certain people but rather some other people who at the end get together and going to the same place which I like the way the story is going. So what do I learn from this movie? If the world is really coming to an end, 1) make sure you know some people from the inside who can bring you into the arc, cape hope is the safest place to be or you can just have 1 billion euro and buy yourself on board. lol~!
