Balik keja semalam ajak hubby layan movie. Hahaha bila tahun kami pegi tengok wayang memalam kan??? Entahhh...

Sebelum tengok movie dan sementara menunggu hubby Maghrib maka aku dok lepak kat tempat biasa - MPH. Biasalah membaca amalan mulia. Tak ceria hidup aku kalo takde buku nih ;)

Hubby selesai Maghrib (aku tak Maghrib sama??? makcik dapat hadiah bendera Jepun gituh hiksss) kami ke Popeye's!!! Hmmm hubby order entah hapa nama menu tuh tak ingat plak tapi ada ayam, udang ngan ikan. Aku hanya dibenarkan makan ikan ngan udang ajer buat masa sekarang nih. Mencikkk!!! Order mashed popato (large)... arghhh sungguh sedap dan aku bedal sorang jer. Kalahlah whipped potato KFC tuh hehehe.

Tengok movie jam 8.30pm...

Memang ramai umat ya ampunnn. Know what??? Seat kami paling depan skalik!!! Adusss nasib baiklah sekarang nih panggung wayang dah canggih manggih kalo tidak mau patah tengkuk dibuatnya.

In 2009, a huge solar flare erupts on the sun. One of the protagonists, Adrian Helmsley (Chiwetel Ejiofor), an American scientist, travels to a copper mine in India to meet his friend, Satnam (Jimi Mistry). His friend has discovered that Earth's core temperature is increasing rapidly. Adrian returns to Washington D.C. and submits a report to the Chief of Staff, Carl Anheuser (Oliver Platt), who immediately takes him to see Thomas Wilson (Danny Glover), the 45th President of the United States. In 2010, Wilson tells other heads of state and heads of government the situation at that year's G8 summit and billionaires all over the world buy plane tickets for a billion euros. In 2011 the original version of the Mona Lisa at the Louvre in Paris is replaced with a decoy, and is sealed away to keep it safe from the impending disaster.

The story jumps ahead to 2012, to Jackson Curtis (John Cusack), a divorced father who works as a limousine driver and writer, and his ex-wife, Kate (Amanda Peet), and children, Noah (Liam James) and Lily (Morgan Lily), who live with Kate's new boyfriend, Gordon (Thomas McCarthy). Jackson takes his children on a camping trip to Yellowstone, where he meets Charlie Frost (Woody Harrelson), who hosts a radio segment that addresses the Mayans' prediction.

Enormous cracks soon develop along the San Andreas Fault, California, and disruptive shaking occurs in the San Francisco Bay area. Despite government assurances that all is fine, Jackson grows suspicious.

After hiring a private plane, he drives to Kate's home to save his family and Gordon from the impending earthquakes of the Earth's crust displacement. Jackson quickly collects his family, and Gordon pilots a plane out of the city. Los Angeles then collapses into the Pacific Ocean.

When the plane runs low on fuel, they are forced to land in Wyoming. Jackson uses the moment to contact Charlie, regarding a map to ships being built in order to save humanity. They return to Yellowstone to find Charlie, only to discover that he has gone to the mountains to watch the approaching catastrophe.

After getting hold of the map they discover that the ships they are searching for are in China. Jackson and his family leave just in time as Yellowstone Caldera erupts, killing Charlie. Meanwhile, an earthquake destroys the Vatican, killing the Pope and the Italian Prime Minister.

In order to get to China they board an Antonov An-225 at McCarran International Airport, with Russian billionaire Yuri Karpov (Zlatko Buric) and girlfriend Tamara (Beatrice Rosen), as Las Vegas is destroyed by earthquakes and ravaged by a volcanic ash cloud from Yellowstone.

While in the air, the group learns that the plane does not have enough fuel to reach China: they've passed Honolulu, Hawaii, which has been inundated in lava. As they're about to ditch the plane they discover that they are no longer above the ocean: the Earth's crust has shifted thousands of miles and they are heading towards the Himalayas. During a crash landing on a glacier they manage to escape from the plane safely by using one of the luxury vehicles in cargo as a raft, only to be abandoned by Yuri. The pilot of the plane, Sasha (Johann Urb), dies when the plane falls off a cliff.

Meanwhile, the President dies when he stays back in America and the White House is crushed by the USS John Kennedy as well as tsunamis. The Chief of Staff escapes America with Helmsley and the First Daughter Laura Wilson (Thandie Newton) in Air Force One, and he becomes Commander-in-chief of America. Air Force One heads to China. Satnam dies when the tsunamis hit India. The Dalai Lama also dies when the tsunamis hit Tibet.

The group eventually find their way to the ships with the help of some locals and are smuggled aboard with the help of a Buddhist monk, Nima (Osric Chau) his brother, Tenzin (Chin Han) and their grandparents. Tsunamis begin to engulf the Indian peninsula, and a giant wave eventually reaches the ships, which turn out to be arks constructed to save the heads of state, hand-picked individuals chosen to repopulate the earth and the rich elite, who could afford to buy tickets (which was earlier mentioned that tickets were €1 000 000 000).

Adrian convinces the leaders of the G8 to let on more people into the ark by quoting Jackson's book, but as the gates open again, Gordon fell between two gears and was crushed, while Tenzin was injured. Meanwhile Yuri and his two sons are trapped beneath the gate and as it closes again, Yuri manages to lift one of his sons onto the gate but as the gate closed further, he had to throw his second son up, causing him to fall to his death.

As a tsunami sweeps in it picks up the parked Air Force One causing the heavy plane to crash into the ark, breaking the ark from its anchor. Tamara drowns within the ark. The gates are jammed and the ark ends up on a crash course for Mount Everest. Jackson fixes the problem with the help of his son and the ark crashes but slows down enough that the damage is minor. When the flood eventually recedes, the captains of the arks decide upon the Cape of Good Hope in South Africa as a suitable place to reestablish humanity. Jackson reconciles with his family, and Helmsley and Laura start a relationship. The movie ends with a view of the world showing the dramatically changed African continent.

Nice movie walaupun kengkadang ada kala aku rasa macam OVERRR!!! Yealah cerita bab² serius macam nih kan tataulah tak reti nak komen pepanjang... kalo korang nak tau lagik pegi ajerlah tengok sendirik :D
