is a smart visual piece of sci-fi that will take you on a journey
to the center of the earth.
The reason? The core of the earth has stopped
spinning, which protects the planet from losing its magnetic
field. A team of scientists launches a journey inside a specially
constructed digging machine to kick-start the core by exploding
a few atomic warheads.
The best part of any disaster movie is
watching cities reduced to a pile of smoking rubble.
So strap yourself in for a visual ride.
You won't be disappointed; it's lots of fun.
Fantastic Voyage meets
Independence Day as scientists drill to the earth's core
to set off weapons of mass destruction.
Ah, there's nothing like a movie to help
you escape the reality of current events as world landmarks explode
and the space shuttle falls from the sky.
Witty dialog is transformed from conversational
to trite, and scientific demonstrations are pulled right out
of Plan Nine from Outer Space.
But there's plenty of magma and enough
Freudian imagery to embarrass Sigmund himself. Bad taste, good
cinema, or just bad timing.
I thought the writing was below par, and
the acting comes down to a bunch of gifted actors trying to outdo
each other as they sit around a cockpit and try to provide enough
heart and humor to make you forget the sheer stupidity of the
facts of the movie.
The molten core of the earth has stopped
spinning, and the planet will be thrown into an electromagnetic
turmoil unless they journey to the center of the earth and set
off a series of nukes to get that hot and gooey global center
on its axis again.
This is bad science, in my opinion.
