The disaster movie to out 'disaster' them all. Huge catastrophes in an empty movie. It's an hour and a half too long and it becomes boring after the halfway mark.

"2012" by Yojimbo

Scientists discover that the planet's crust is destabilising creating a race against time to save as much of humanity as possible. 2012 has all the ingredients of an Emmerich film; the estranged couple with plucky kids in tow, the noble self-sacrificing president, the conspiracy theorist kook and of course the gleeful trashing of the world's greatest monuments (this time the White House gets squished by an aircraft carrier and the Vatican falls over on the Pope!) It follows the usual formula of spectacular set pieces punctuated with schmaltz and every race against time comes down the the final second and every escape is by a hair's breadth. It actually works quite well for the centre section when they're outrunning earthquakes and volcanos with some truly jaw dropping chases involving car...

2012 review

Well research disaster film with some touching moments. Large cast consists of Adrian Helmsley (Chiwetel Ejiofor), White House Chief of Staff Carl Anheuser (Oliver Platt), President Thomas Wilson (Danny Glover), DJ Charlie Frost (Woody Harrelson), author/writer Jackson Curtis (John Cusack) and more. The stunning effects are pretty to look at but unfortunately so many scenes were unbelievable to the point of ridiculousness. One of many would be the limo (out running collapsing buildings and a cracking fault line), plane (out maneuvering the obstacles and running with a limited ground for take-off), and cellphone signals during tsunamis, long underwater scenes, again out running the hot rocks from the volcano, etc. Screen play was decent; acting was solid, overall a typical popcorn type...

Sit Back and Enjoy the Ride

Once the action started(it starts pretty soon into the movie) the movie became absolutely engaging. It remained so throughout the first half but in the second half the intensity dropped a little(I also felt they should have reduced the run time by 15-20 mins).

The story is scientists discover that the Earth's crust has become unstable so the governments and rich people secretly build 'arks' so 'selected' people can escape the disaster. When the disaster strikes the hero and his family escape from fire spitting volcanoes, crumbling and caving in cities(these scenes are spectacularly done) by road and air. So much action just in the first half.

In the second half as the family make their way(with some assistance) to the 'arks' there are tsunamis which flood the White House and Himalay...

Dude, I sent you a link to that story that denounces every myth out there from NASA.  All theories are impossible based on known science at this time.  There are about 10 planet X's right now, which is what NASA calls every object that it can not identify. Once it is identified, it is no longer called Planet X.

I want to become the leader of the IHC. If planet X hits the world in 2012 and there was a hollywood movie about it before it happened I am going to laugh my ass off.
