Trivia

The cello concerto written for this film by Erich Wolfgang Korngold was composed as two shorter pieces for filming purposes. After the film was released, they were combined as two movements of a finished concerto, making Korngold's "Cello Concerto" one of the shortest on the concert hall stage, at about 12 minutes.

Yep, it's really that bad.
17 April 2004 | by See all my reviews

I just want to add my voice to the critics and say, yes this movie is REALLY bad.

It has no suspense to speak of except where the characters start pretending to be serious. No link to reality, what in the world qualifies some oil fire fighters to run cutting edge equipment other than they're the inventor's drinking buddies. THESE guys are going to set off nukes to save the world? No wonder it's about to end.

As for casting, I think the only criteria was who was unemployed when it came time to shoot. Personally though I have to say I did like the Wil Wheaton Molten Shower scene.
