In the movie 2012, China saves the world, reflecting the country’s growing importance on an international level. What took so long?

Although panned by critics, 2012 was a truly revolutionary movie in itself. Unlike typical Hollywood movies, America does not save the day via a super-pumped American action-hero swooping in. Instead of focusing on American strength and ingenuity, it focuses on the efforts of the world working together to survive the cataclysmic catastrophe – a huge paradigm change given the American-centric nature of Hollywood movies.

But most surprisingly, the movie pays respect to China’s growing power.

In 2012, humanity is to be saved by the building of huge, reinforced ships in Tibet where the selected and rich few can survive and ride out Mount Everest high tsunamis.

In addition to reflecting present-day fears of climate change, it also reflects the shifting-powers of today. In homage to and recognition of China and its growing power, dominance and importance in the world, the movie tasks the country with the important task of building giant ships which will save the select few from global catastrophe.

One of the movie’s characters even exclaims surprise that only China could build such arcs so quickly in the space of two years.

China saving the world – sounds like reality. It’s about time.
