Core, The


USA 2002, 129 minutes
Dir. Jon Amiel
Rating: [M]
Genres: Action/Adventure, Science Fiction / Subterranean


Aroview: Overblown actioner in which scientists discover that the Earth's core will soon stop spinning, unleashing a wave of natural catastrophes.

Equipping themselves with a gigantic drill-bit, Swank and her helpers prepare to inject nuclear bombs into the molten centre as a solution. Dispenses with credibility fairly early on, instead substituting impressive scenes of major planetwide destruction, oddball one-liners and taut-faced grimaces.
