    "This is an interesting movie featuring John Cusack, based on the predictions that the world would be ending in 2012 through a series of tragic, natural disaster events. The movie has received quite a bit of mixed reviews though. The key part of this movie seems to be the apocalyptic events that really make this movie stand out, more than just the actors or characters in the movie. "

    "Real solid movie I watched with my girl. Jack Black is in this and the humor is pretty good. As a late 90s or early 2000s movie it really has some good entertainment value. "

    "I wouldn't rank this as one of the best movies John Cusack has done. There was a certain point in the mid-2000s before 1408 where he just ended up playing a heightened version of himself. This movie is good, but because of the existential horror captured through his character's eyes, not his acting."

    "Without a doubt this is my favorite Cusack movie. My friend and I used to watch this over and over in the late 90's. The timely humor in the way he kills his enemies is classic. "

    "John Cusack playing a hit man or a book author in 1408 has always impressed me. I was watching Better Off Dead... the other day and thought it was one of his better movies. It had action and drama so I think it was balanced and exciting at the same time. "
