An offbeat comedy that shows how one song from a band with five members saved the world from the foretold 2012 destruction. Japanese director Yoshihiro Nakamura did a great job of bouncing around years and leaving little hints to how each story was interrelated with the others. The movie is chock-full of a various characters from a pre-Sex Pistols punk band, doomsday prophets inept at calculations, a hero who champions justice, and a mistranslation that is inadvertently responsible for it all. It’s hard to say more without giving too much away. Bottom line, a fun film that’s unlike any other doomsday one to date.
