I have heard a lot of negative reactions from friends who have watched 2012. I totally respect their opinions. But their conclusions can not stop me from watching the film.
My boyfriend and I has just sat in front of the telly for +/- 160 minutes watching 2012. So what's my opinion about it? I LIKE IT!
I am one of those whose taste on films isn't that over the top which is why despite the negative criticisms, I will still say that this film is a must watch for movie lovers. I will even certainly watch it again!
Okey yes... there are scenes which are predictable and look so impossible to happen in the year 2012. Come on guys! 2012 is a film we are talking about. It is not a reality tv show (which are even at times altered just to satisfy the viewers' desires)! Movies are created out from the creative minds of movie writers and makers which is why we have the movies we adore such as The Lord of the Rings Trilogy, Star Wars, Rambo, Indiana Jones, Notting Hill --- should I say more? Without the touch of fantasy, exaggeration and imagination, these films will turn out so untinteresting and boring. Even movies that are based on true stories have some modified parts, too!
I am not saying that 2012 is one of the best films I've ever seen up to this moment. It might not be the most amazing film there is but it is worth your time and attention. So if you are still wondering up to this date if you will go see it or not, I'll tell you... watch it and enjoy!
