An earthquake reaching a 10.5 magnitude on the Richter scale, strikes the west coast of the U.S. and Canada. A large portion of land falls into the ocean, and the situation is worsened by aftershocks and tsunami.
The final attack by F-16s (or F-15/18 depending on shot) is carried out by firing missiles. Only AIM-9 Sidewinders and AIM-120 AMRAAMs (both designed for air-to-air use) are seen launched and these have relatively small warheads of approximately 21lb and 40lb respectively, and these are blast-fragmentation types as opposed to pure high explosive. In contrast the visuals display large explosions more suitable to large conventional bombs despite none being visible either carried on any aircraft or seen being dropped. In either case such explosions would be very unlikely to have any significant effect on such a large massive body of compacted ice. See more »
I have just endured "2012: Ice Age" and, as suggested above, I feel that I have wasted my time. Don't get me wrong, some of the scenes in it were quite cool; it's just a pity that they were ripped from other films! The acting was stilted, the dialogue was inane, the casting was what I can only presume as being last minute (I mean, really! Would the son's attitude have been more appropriate if he had been 7 instead of 17???) and the FX were very trapped in the early part of the last decade. If I had a choice between watching this movie again with the associated risk of my brain melting out through my ears to avoid the trauma of "2012: Ice Age" or being caught under a glacier, I would gladly strip to my tighty-whitey's and dive underneath that big boy.
Please, don't insult your intelligence as I have just done. Avoid this movie like it was your mother-in-law.
