Scene-Stealers‘ Eric Melin and guest host Trevan McGee review the new apocalyptic disaster porn movie â€œ2012â€³ starring John Cusack and directed by Roland Emmerich. The Mayan prophecy says the world will end in 2012, and Hollywood has co-opted that premise for a flick with lots of state-of-the-art CGI special effects. Is â€œ2012â€³ up to the cinematic standards of the man who also directed â€œIndependence Dayâ€ and â€œThe Day After Tomorrowâ€? Does it at least succeed as a doomsday action movie? Find out in this on-camera movie review of â€œ2012â€³ with clips from the film.
Bonus: Ever wondered what a special-effects-driven disaster movie like â€œ2012â€³ would look like if all the FX were removed? Well, an editor has done just that, posting a minute and a half of footage from â€œ2012â€³ with just the actors. John Cusack and company do a lot of screaming and reacting, and itâ€™s hilarious. Want to know what the end of the world really looks like? Stick around for the closing shot!
