I was totally kicked about watching 2012; any disaster movie, is my favourite. This movie did not disappoint, specially with the visual effects. But the story line was a little non-convincing for the actor

John Cusack always as a close shave with death and survives, the other reason was there is only a mention of the Mayan Prophecy.

As we all know it, the world is coming to an end, and how will one survive. The best part to this is that the prediction was made by an Indian played by Jimmy Mistry. This was the opening scene in the movie, of course India, didnt look like India in the movie. The other thought that i had was, would it be possible for the movie to customise the story for each country.

Other than John Cusack, there could have been a better and known actors and more believable and achievable storyline. Not like the one, when all the buildings are falling down, airport runaways going down, water is rising, volcanoes are erupting, earthquake is highest on the righter scale; the hero always is the one who is unhurt, unscathed. The other side of the story has to how mankind survives is because of a country called China, this is enough of the movie given away. You have both Indian and China, being mentioned in the movie – India discovers, China invents, Chindia saves the world.

If you are special effect crazy, looking forward to Armageddon, this movie would not disappoint you.
