Director: Roland Emmerich
Stars: John Cusack, Amanda Peet, Chiwetel Ejiofor
Roland Emmerich pieced “2012” together from a stash of stale ingredients hanging around his Disaster Movie Cliche cabinet, and he’s not apologizing for it. Unnatural natural disasters, government coverups, token environmental and/or religious wingnuts, awkward one liners: It should come as no surprise that Emmerich is the writer and director behind “The Day After Tomorrow” and “Independence Day.”
Thing is, though, Emmerich’s good at what he does. And who other than John Cusack can we really rely on to save the world?
