We Were Warned.


2012
After wiping out much of Earth a few times already, Roland Emmerich is back to do it again with more state-of-the-art special effects. The plotline is just a device to put people in the way of nature, and revolves around an estranged father and his family, assorted government figures and scientists, in a race against time to get to safety as the world goes to pieces around them.

157 minutes.
Mature Accompaniment under 13.

Chicago Sunday Times
Roger Ebert quote iconThis 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.

eye Weekly
Adam Nayman quote icon2012 features earthquakes, towering infernos, crumbling airports and upside-down cruise ships: in other words, it’s pure ’70s-event-movie nostalgia, just like all of Roland Emmerich’s other ensemble apocalyptos.
5
Rolling Stone
Peter Travers quote icon Just the noise and cheeseball pyrotechnics that Hollywood regularly substitutes for intelligence and wit. Welcome to 2009.

ScreenIt
C. Fuchs quote iconYes, the film delivers on the effects front and those who enjoy such visual mayhem might like what's offered. It's just too bad that the best of that occurs early in the film and that you'll have to sit through a plethora of boring and clichéd drama before the next batch erupts.

Tomatometer quote iconRoland Emmerich's 2012 provides plenty of visual thrills, but lacks a strong enough script to support its massive scope and inflated length.
