What we have here is a low budget documentary (using the word here very loosely) about 2012 and the various rumors/prophecies about the end of world in December of that year. I’m going to go out on a limb and say that this release is timed perfectly for the upcoming disaster flick 2012. But whereas that one will at least have some pretty sweet special effects, this one simply has “special” experts in the fields of cosmology, astrology, astronomy and ancient history.

Now from the title of this movie, you might think that it’ll have a ton of information about the predicted disasters that are supposed to hit in 2012. But in fact, it really spends a lot more time on the science (or pseudo-science) of the earth’s magnetic poles and the possibility of those poles reversing, the cycles of the sun and the earth, the age of Aquarius…the list goes on and on.

Elements of this are somewhat interesting, particularly when some of the scientists and authors question the veracity of the global warming movement. I’m always intrigued to hear the dissenting voices on any topic of debate, but this one’s especially interesting given the passion with which the environmentalists defend their position.

But ultimately this looks and feels like nothing more than a conspiracy theorist’s playground, with tons of random thoughts strung together in some semblance of coherency. Watch if you enjoy this sort of stuff, but otherwise, wait until the big blockbuster hits in November.



Having seen the documentry i have to say that it gives a FAIR and BALANCED veiw of what to expect come 2012.If this documentry had been so one sided as to say "THE WORLD IS GOING TO END" then that is what i would call conspiracy.It does not do that.The fact is nobody knows what will happen in 2012 so all arguments have been taken into account.This is where 2012 AN AWAKENING stands alone and i for one took great information from it.and this is the key.It is not meant to be a doom riden special effects driven all gloss and no substance hollywood blockbuster,it is intended to put all the information forward to the watcher so they can make up their own mind.YES both the holywood film and the documentry will no doubt cross swords later this year but i know who i would rather believe and it aint hollywood baby.
