Family-Faith Film Review: 2012
By Catholic Office of Film and Broadcasting

2012—In the disaster movie to end all fiasco flicks, a doomsday cataclysm results in billions losing their lives as the earth’s crust breaks apart, dismantling civilization and rearranging the continents. Director Roland Emmerich gives his special-effects wizards license to test the limits of the technically plausible and morally palatable, while asking moviegoers to take heart as the scenario affords a White House geologist (Chiwetel Ejiofor) and a divorced science-fiction writer (John Cusack) the chance to exhibit altruism, even as their exploits are interspersed with disturbing apocalyptic imagery, including the destruction of St. Peter’s Basilica and the Sistine Chapel. Considerable crude and crass language, much profanity, a rough gesture and a few instances of sexual innuendo.  A-III — adults. (PG-13) 2009.  Full review of 2012

‘The disaster movie to end all fiasco flicks’ I hope so for all our sakes because this one has certainly put me off. In a typical ‘end of the world disaster movie’ scenario we now know that come what may the President will be taking off in Air Force One while we all burn, drown or get crushed. I am now hoping I will choke on a Twinkie when I hear the announcement on CNN news.
