Cheap and Boring

2012: Mayan Prophecy and the Shift of the Ages (2009)

* 1/2 (out of 4)

Cheaply produced documentary from director Philip Gardiner that takes a look at the Mayan calender, which ends on December 21, 2012 and is the date many believes the world will end. There have been quite a few documentaries and films that tried to cash-in on the paranoia surrounding 12/21/2012 but this here is one of the cheapest and most boring. I will at least give the film credit in the fact that it does give out a lot of information about the Mayan calender and why they felt the world might end on this date. I think the information given gets a bit too silly for its own good including a bit about women missing their periods and another segment dealing with the human brain that just didn't work for me. The biggest problem is that we're given a bunch of cheap music playing in the background as well as boring and rather pointless images. Most of the images are either cheap computer effects are stock footage scenes of fires, floods and other natural disasters that you can see anywhere. With so many documentaries out there on the subject, there's really no point in watching this one.
