* {{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]].

Added DiffLines:

** 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...

**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]]

** 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.

* HilariousInHindsight: The line about the Italian Prime Minister praying in his quarters during the Vatican's destruction was met with resounding laughter by Italian audiences. Given that Italy's actual PM at the time was [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Silvio_Berlusconi_prostitute_trial Silvio Berlusconi]], almost everyone there joked that he instead surrounded himself with whores, to pass his last moments on Earth as he always lived.

* TheScrappy: '''NOAH'''. The kid is a dick to his father for the first act and does nothing but scream and complain for the entire disaster. He's also TheLoad and a borderline DamselScrappy. His sister avoids this by being funny and cute at times.

* SugarWiki/VisualEffectsOfAwesome: Well duh, it's a Creator/RolandEmmerich film. I dare you to watch the thrilling climax [[spoiler: in which a colossal ark careens through the flooded Himlayas]] and not enjoy it.
