Confused But Not All That Bad

"It would appear that I am a maverick when it comes to this film; I didn't think it was terrible, just confused. I was able to watch it all the way through without falling out of my chair with laughter or falling asleep and I thought there were some moments when the acting came across very convincingly.
I do not buy into the ideas circulating about 2012 being the end of the world; as an Evangelical Christian I am completely convinced the Bible's account of the end of the world is entirely correct and it isn't in 2012. There are a lot of things the Bible says will happen before the world comes to an end; there will be a major renovation but that happens several years after the next thing on the list which just happens to be the Rapture.
I was interested in noting that some Christian soteriology and eschatology in bits and pieces was included in the film, but the final picture of the end times as described was completely off base from the Bible's teachings on the subject. I'll not go into what I think the Bible teaches about the end times but it is drastically different from what was presented in the movie.
I too thought the effort to tie Christian eschatology in with the Mayan calendar was feeble and ill-advised. Having said all that, I did find the movie tolerable and thought it even had some exciting moments. There is hardly a movie out there that is totally free of bloopers and if this movie had so many that it took extra time to watch it then that scores much better in the laugh department than some so-called comedies; maybe it'll establish itself as a cult comedy.
I don't regret having watched the movie but I doubt that I'll watch it again anytime soon.
