** Basically after only minutes of Ejiofor explaining the situation he is in action and spearheads the top secret, international mega project to save the entire human species species, many of its cultural treasures, and many of the other species as well. This plan largely succeeds in spite of things happening months earlier than Ejiofor forecast and the meddling of many of the "Heros".

** Gordon comes off as being an infinitely better father than Jackson ever was, saves the family on multiple occasions thanks to his borderline miraculous piloting skills, and [[spoiler: you can't help but feel sorry for the poor bastard when he is cruelly killed in a painful and undignified death literally ''meters'' from safety after a journey that took him halfway around the world.]]

** This is a movie about a massive apocalyptic disaster in 2012. Cue when the year hit 2013, [[PacificRim Marshall Pentecost]] said that humanity [[HumansAreWarriors will cancel the apocalypse]]

*** Also, it's not like any debt accumulated from building them would actually ''matter'' when the world ends. The countries could have spent themselves into bankruptcy ten times over.

* {{Glurge}}: Noah's anguished tearful moment with Jackson before he goes to repair the gears. It would be a nice heartwarming moment...if not for the fact that the kid is holding his Dad up at a very time-sensitive moment and is risking millions of lives. Rather than sympathising with the kid, many viewers wanted to punch him for [[spoiler: causing Tamara to drown]].

** The deaths of Sasha and especially Gordon and Tamara. Jackson's futile attempts to help Gordon only to watch in horror as he dies doesn't help.
*** Speaking of Gordon the entire family forgets him almost immediately after his death which is sad considering that he saved their lives twice and was practically the entire reason they got to China in the first place. Poor guy...

** However, it is also pointed out that the people who he chooses to live? Just so happen to be the rich elite, so it comes off not so much as saving the human race as really just being a greedy bastard.
*** However, the money they spent on tickets funded the project in the first place, and even they could take it with them, their money would worthless without an economy backing it up.
*** As pointed out by [[WebVideo/BadMovieBeatdown Film Brain]], the average person would be dead by this point. The refugees themselves would need to be in the rich elite themselves, paying through the nose in order to survive the apocalypse and to have a chance to get on one of the arks.
*** Furthermore, while pragmatic to contemplate, the "rich elite" usually comprise highly educated people-- doctors, engineers and etc. When looking ahead to rebuild, these are exactly the people who should be given priority.
