Storyline

On October 30, 2009 an independent filmmaker and his cast and crew are reported missing a month before the release of their controversial film predicting the end of the world. Authorities have reason to believe the film's 2012 doomsday scenario may have something to do with their disappearance. An agent for CEA (Central Extraterrestrial Agency) discovers the footage to the film and watches the film on September 10, 2012, three months before the world is to come to an end. The film is reported to star actors Brian Neil Hoff (Automaton), Shy Pilgreen (Echo 6), and Xu Razer (Fragments.) Here is the synopsis to the mystery film. In 2012 a devastating war between humans and aliens left the earth a nuclear wasteland. 200 years later the descendants of both civilizations have returned in search of treasure and lost artifacts. After landing their ship on the abandoned planet, three galactic thieves, Kaynin, Rune, and Archer descend into an underground city. Soon a series of mechanical ... Written by R. Christian Anderson

Trivia

The spaceships seen in "Defcon 2012" were designed by master animation artist Frank Panucci. One such ship has landing skis instead of wheels, which were the idea of director R. Christian Anderson to show a soft landing on the planet's sandy surface. Panucci incorporated this into his design. The detailed surface of the post-apocalyptic planet was also created by Panucci, who gave it an otherworldly appearance complete with wind and texture. See more »

Mediocre to worse
19 March 2012 | by See all my reviews

Three out of ten possible stars is more than enough for this movie. Taking into account the budget of just $35.000 this movie isn't as bad as could have been. The movie starts off with a man in black suite and the audio of several newscasts made with a commonly used voice-synthesizer. The scenes give a sense of mystery to the viewer (which i really liked), however the artificial voices are ruining that feeling. I simply can't understand why Carolina Liechtenstein resorted to voice-synthesizers for that part. It is a major put off. The sound quality, the decors, the acting is as can be expected with such a low budget. Mediocre at best but worse most of the time. Worst of all, the sequence of events is so sssslllllllooooooooooowwwww! Frankly, a snail dipped in super glue goes around in an Olympic pace compared to the 'action' in this movie. I was forced to use the fast-forward button more than once. During most of the movie i kept on asking myself "What the heck is this movie about?" and at the end i still have to guess what it was about. Perhaps i need to see it twice or three times to comprehend it completely but that prospect doesn't really appeal to me. Still, it's much better than Aliens vs Avatars. The special effects are occasionally reasonably good (the CAD/CAM for instance) considering the budget. Summorizing: It's not a movie i would recommend to anyone, not even SF fans.
