Take a simplistic new-age take on an ancient idea, mix it with postmodern relative humanism, throw in a raft of mediocre acting and dramatic, even melodramatic, special effects, and you have the makings of 2012. If you pay full price for your ticket, you will either feel cheated, or you have very low standards for entertainment. On the other hand, if you see the bargain matinee or, even better, a second-run showing at the dollar theater, you'll thoroughly enjoy this meaningless and predictable high-tech adventure.

I predict -- I'm going out on a limb here -- that by the time the actual year 2012 is history, this film will have worn out its audience's interest with thousands upon thousands of opportunities -- that, perhaps, should be in quotes -- to view it for free.
