"12/12/12" will lure you in with an appealing cover, but the contents within that cover is simply put - disappointing, boring and far from interesting.
The very moment you see The Asylum's logo on the screen you know it is going to be one of those movies. And as with the movies spewed out from The Asylum, the vast majority of them are ridiculously hilarious to watch because they take the term bad to a whole new level. And "12/12/12" is exactly that.
The story in this movie is about a couple having a baby born on the unique date that is 12/12/12, and apparently to have a baby on that date is a very bad thing. The baby is not well and soon people start dying around it of mysterious incidents and accidents. A dark and gloomy Satanic cult wants the baby as it is the bringer of the end of the world.
This movie borrows heavily from other movies that managed to pull it off in a much better manner and a much more believable way. The baby in "12/12/12" is so horrible fake that it is painful to watch. And there was one scene that was just downright tasteless - it includes the baby and the mommy, that is all I will say. You have to see it for yourself. That was just a tad too much in my opinion.
As for the acting in "12/12/12", well given the production value of the movie and the budget, don't expect any overly familiar faces or any outstanding performances here. It was uninspiring and lacked conviction most of the time.
The Asylum spews out a lot, and I do mean a lot, of questionable movies that are so bad that they actually start to have entertainment value because they are so horrible to look at. "12/12/12" is nothing special and oddly enough it doesn't even qualify in the latter bucket of The Asylum movies. And the movie also had a fair number of bad mistakes in it, but I will leave that up to you to try to spot them.
