Reviews
USA Today "The movie is an undeniable visual spectacle....At its best, 2012 is preposterous fun, with boggling special effects." 11/13/2009
Chicago Sun-Times 3.5 stars out of 4 -- "2012 delivers what it promises....This one ends the world, stomps on it, grinds it up and spits it out." 11/13/2009
Movieline "[F]un, loud, optimistic and excessive....The state of the art in global woe..." 11/13/2009
Washington Post "[E]normously satisfying, astonishingly accomplished, reprehensible-yet-irresistible...the crowning achievement in Emmerich's long, profitable career as a destroyer of worlds." 11/13/2009
Variety "[S]imultaneously spectacular and risible....The visual effects are pretty sensational, delivering the cutting-edge CGI goods auds want and expect." 11/09/2009
Entertainment Weekly "Cusack, with his one-of-the-guys face and his nice way with child actors, does creditable work....[A] rock-solid disaster-pic..." 12/10/2009

Reviews
ReviewSource Chicago Sun-Times
Review It's not so much that the Earth is destroyed, but that it's done so thoroughly. 2012, the mother of all disaster movies (and the father, and the extended family) spends half an hour on ominous set-up scenes (scientists warn, strange events occur, prophets rant and of course a family is introduced) and then unleashes two hours of cataclysmic special events hammering the Earth relentlessly...This is fun. 2012 delivers what it promises, and since no sentient being will buy a ticket expecting anything else, it will be, for its audiences, one of the most satisfactory films of the year. It even has real actors in it. Like all the best disaster movies, it's funniest at its most hysterical. You think you've seen end-of-the-world movies? This one ends the world, stomps on it, grinds it up and spits it out...Emmerich thinks on a big scale. Yes, he destroys regular stuff. It will come as little surprise (because at this writing the film's trailer on YouTube alone had more than 7,591,413 views) that the aircraft carrier John F. Kennedy rides a tsunami onto the White House. When St. Peter's Basilica is destroyed, Leonardo's God and Adam are split apart just where their fingers touch (the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel having been moved into St. Peter's for the occasion). Then when Emmerich gets warmed up, the globe's tectonic plates shift thousands of miles, water covers the planet, and a giraffe walks aboard an ark...Emmmerich also constructs dramatic real-scale illusions, as when an earthquake fissure splits a grocery store in half. Cusack is the hero in an elaborate sequence involving his desperate attempts to unblock a jammed hydraulic lift that threatens to sink the ark. He does a lot of heroic stuff in this film, especially for a novelist, like leaping a van over a yawning chasm and riding a small plane through roiling clouds of earthquake dust...The bottom line is: The movie gives you your money's worth. Is it a masterpiece? No. Is it one of the year's best? No. Does Emmerich hammer it together with his elbows from parts obtained from the Used Disaster Movie Store? Yes. But is it about as good as a movie in this genre can be? Yes. No doubt it will inflame fears about our demise on Dec. 21, 2012. I'm worried, too. I expect that to be even worse than Y2K.

Quotes
Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle There's something to be said for a formula picture done almost to perfection. In 2012, Emmerich gives you everything you expect, but gives it to you bigger.
Todd McCarthy, Variety The visual effects are pretty sensational, delivering the cutting-edge CGI goods auds want and expect.
