I just saw the movie and it was one hell of a wild ride. Plus, the actors where spot on with John Cusack in the lead, Danny Glover as the President,
and Woody Harrelson as a person who would find a comfortable home here on ATS with all of us. In other words, very good cast selection! The story was
pretty good, although, a little far fetched given the chain of events and the convenient plot elements scattered throughout to move along the story in
a cozy manner as Hollywood is guilty of doing on many occasions.
Another interesting footnote, is a particular country that is in the news rather often, being thought of as the savior of the world. I won't mention
the name of the country in question, but it was very interesting how the film makers brought them into the story. Oh yeah, that country is not the
United States. I am somewhat on the fence with that choice, but I will leave it to the other viewers as to why that country was picked as the savior.
Maybe it is just a sign of the times?
Some escapes in the movie were far to convenient for reality, in terms of the characters surviving such onslaughts. Call it creative license or
whatever, but it was just far to convenient for my liking. However, all in all, if you want to be thrilled with explosions, special effects, and a
rather reasonable story to one possible scenario of 2012, see the movie.
