Jack Hall, paleoclimatologist, must make a daring trek from Washington, D.C. to New York City, to reach his son, trapped in the cross-hairs of a sudden international storm which plunges the planet into a new Ice Age.
Dr. Adrian Helmsley, part of a worldwide geophysical team investigating the effect on the earth of radiation from unprecedented solar storms, learns that the earth's core is heating up. He warns U.S. President Thomas Wilson that the crust of the earth is becoming unstable and that without proper preparations for saving a fraction of the world's population, the entire race is doomed. Meanwhile, writer Jackson Curtis stumbles on the same information. While the world's leaders race to build "arks" to escape the impending cataclysm, Curtis struggles to find a way to save his family. Meanwhile, volcanic eruptions and earthquakes of unprecedented strength wreak havoc around the world. Written by

This marks the last day of the United States of America. And, by tomorrow, all of mankind. And we will be visible from the Milky Way as a tiny little puff of smoke. I'm watching the earth crumble before my eyes. The giant ash cloud created by this super-volcano will first envelop Vegas and then St. Louis and then Chicago and then, at long last, Washington, D.C. will have its lights go out!

The opening scene of the movie shows the years and events leading up to 2012 (2009...2010...2011). The title card not only states the movie's title, but also seems to indicate, "And in the year 2012..." See more »
This awful piece of crank was full of fallacies, the most glaring one: why, how and what good money can do (especially paper Euros) to whoever cashed it when the entire world is going to hell, anyway?
The characters exist only in the imagination of those who made this garbage possible; Hollywood and its employees. They have zero chance to exist in reality.
Forget about the fact that the whole premise was nonsense; i.e. the Mayan calender.
Notwithstanding that, Roland make it very clear by his old-school stereotypical dehumanisation parade: shallow WASPS, caricature-sque Arabs,superstitious Catholics, robotic Chinese, etc. on the other end-scale of his 'reality' a heroic American president (who in fact have no authority over the NS or secret service when it comes to such situation) stay behind? Why, because he wanted to help by attending to his people's final plight: it was laughable, not eye-watering Mr Roland.
Going through this crap was like a bizarre dream, full of ludicrous absurdities, be it a scientific or logical one; one can't tell which is which. All in all a typical brainless propaganda with zero taste or rational. AVOID. 0/10
